Product Description

The jCOM.J1939.GPS device connects to an SAE J1939 network and reports the vehicle position (PGN 65267) with a five second frequency, according to the SAE J1939-71 Standard. The integrated J1939 protocol stack automatically negotiates a node address in the range of 128 to 247. The GPS data is broadcast by using the global destination address (255 = 0xFF). The device's firmware can be updated on-site per the integrated RS232 port, which also allows the loading of customer-specific features.

The content of delivery includes the jCOM.J1939.GPS module, the GPS antenna (preferred installation location is the driver cabin, i.e. close to the wind shield), and the SAE J1939 cable suited for a 9-pin Deutsch connection.

PGN 65267 - Vehicle Position

The output of the application is PGN 65267 (0xFEF3) according to the SAE J1939-71 standard:

Transmission Rate: 5 s
Data Length: 8 bytes
Default Priority: 6

Start Position Length Parameter Name SPN
1 - 4 4 bytes Latitude 584
5 - 8 4 bytes Longitude 585

Operational Range: -210 deg (WEST) to 211.1008211 deg (EAST)

GPS Data

The image below demonstrates the data output of the GPS module (CAN/J1939 port).

Line 1 documents the address claim. The application is set up for an address range between 128 (0x80) and 247 with a preferred address of 128. The following lines are valid GPS data (pointing to our Windows 10 PC in our office; we moved the board as far as the cable allowed and changes are visible). 

Please note that the SAE J1939-71 Standard uses Small Endian for data transmission, meaning LSB comes first, MSB comes last. Also be aware, it might take several minutes after startup before the GPS module can provide a valid position (Once found, it takes only seconds with clear reception). The SAE J1939-71 Standard does not cover such a scenario, i.e. the data output for such a case is not defined. Rather than not sending anything at all, we chose to set all 8 data bytes to 0xFF.

Firmware Updates

In order to allow on-site firmware updates, we have created a simple Windows program that enables the user to initiate the programming procedure (i.e. switching to FLASH mode).

Note: Due to the fact that this is a new product, there are no firmware updates available at this time. Also, you will need a USB-to-RS232 adapter to connect the GPS module to your PC. Any standard adapter will do, but we also recommend using a standard straight RS232 cable, since these adapters use hex screws that collide with the RS232 port.

As shown above, the Windows software serves not only as a firmware updating tool, it also displays the current position, serving as a proof of concept.

Checking the Firmware and Windows Programming Tool Versions

In order to check the program versions of either the GPS module's firmware or the Windows programming tool (or both), start the Windows program and initiate the connection to the module by clicking on Start COM. Shortly thereafter, the firmware version will be updated on the screen (as shown above using the example "jCOM.J1939.GPS - Firmware Version 1.00.00"). The Windows program version in this example is shown in the upper left corner as "jCOM.GPS - V 1.00.00."

CAN Bus Termination Resistor

The jCOM.J1939 comes per default with a 120 Ohm termination resistor activated. To deactivate the resistor, open the enclosure and locate the DIP switch as indicated in the following image.

Serial Interfaces

Details of the RS232 and CAN ports are described here. 

RS232

jCOM.J1939.GPS RS232 Pinout

RTS and CTS are not connected. CTS is always held in the ready state. 

CAN Port

The CAN port has an on-board 120Ω (0.5W) termination resistor. This termination resistor can be connected or disconnected via an on-board slide switch.
