CAN Bus Analysis Software Supports SAE J1939 and CANopen Data Monitoring and Recording

Posted by Industry News on

Sontheim CANexplorer 4

The  CANexplorer 4 by Sontheim is a modular, efficient, intuitive field-bus analyzing software for CAN Bus. It represents years of experience working with complex machine and vehicle CAN Bus networks.

The modular structure delivers all critical features for analyzing and logging CAN Bus network traffic, like classic text-based traces, graphs, bar-graphs, LEDs, filters, and triggers. Furthermore, the software includes integrated protocol abstraction for CANopen and  SAE J1939 to get pre-processed CAN Bus data. The integrated symbol editor defines symbols for abstracting CAN Bus frame values into human-readable values for proprietary protocols and RAW CAN Bus data.

The logged CAN Bus data can be replayed for simulation purposes. The test setups are configured using an intuitive drag-and-drop system, where only a few clicks are necessary to prepare new test setups. Simultaneous operation and other applications on a PC and a virtual device driver allow the testing of all functions without any connected hardware. In addition, the CANexplorer 4 provides multithread support for the SiECA132 MT-API with a maximum of 512 handles.

Key Features

  • User-defined measurement setups with graphic elements and drag and drop
  • Receiving, editing, sending and abstracting raw CAN Bus data
  • SAE J1939 and CANopen protocol support
  • Modular design with extension options
  • Import and export of signal databases

SAE J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator

eSAE J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator

Our JCOM.J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator is designed to allow the experienced engineer as well as the beginner to experiment with SAE J1939 data communication without the need of connecting to a real-world J1939 network, i.e. a diesel engine. 

It may sound obvious, but in order to establish a network, you need at least two nodes, and that fact applies especially to CAN/J1939 where the CAN Bus controller will basically shut down after transmitting data without receiving a response. 

For that reason, our JCOM.J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator consists of two J1939 nodes, namely our JCOM.J1939.USB, an SAE J1939 ECU Simulator Board With USB Port.

Position, Speed, Inclination Encoders With SAE J1939 And CANopen Interface

Siko (Germany) introduced their wire-actuated Pure.Mobile encoder family that measures position, speed, and inclination using an integrated single-axis inclination sensor. The encoders' sensor data utilizes serial protocols, including CANopen, CANopen safety, and SAE J1939. Mobile machines must always function as precisely and efficiently as possible, whether lifting platforms, mobile cranes or self-concrete pumps. Sensors are suitable for detecting [...]

Controller Area Network (CAN Bus) Tutorial - Higher Layer Protocols

The following is an excerpt from  A Comprehensible Controller Area Network by Wilfried Voss. Even though highly influential in automobiles and small applications, the CAN Bus technology alone is not suitable for machine automation since its communication between devices is limited to only 8 bytes.Consequently, higher layer protocols such as CANopen for machine control, DeviceNet for factory [...]

Controller Area Network (CAN Bus) And Higher-Layer Protocols CANopen, SAE J1939, NMEA 2000

For the longest time, the major misconception about Controller Area Network (CAN) was that it merely applies to automobiles. The truth is, CAN, since its introduction in 1986, proved to be a robust, versatile, and straightforward technology and, consequently, the CAN Bus technology found its way into all areas of applications where microprocessors need to [...]
