Powertrain Diagnostics Platform For Engine Development Comes With Two CAN FD Interfaces

Posted by Industry News on

KiBox2: Comprehensive analysis for current and future powertrains

Kistler introduced its Kibox2, a modular and extendable powertrain diagnostics platform for engine development. The Kibox2 is equipped with two CAN FD interfaces for reading data from the vehicle network.

KiBox2 Powertrain Analysis System

The diagnostic platform is suitable for standard, electric, and hybrid powertrain analysis. It allows time- and angle-based data recording, real-time calculation of combustion parameters, limit value monitoring, and more. The DC power supply choices are optimized for in-vehicle measurement applications. The system also allows standalone operation without a host PC. Wireless connectivity includes WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network), hotspot capability, and GPS (Global Positioning System).

The platform is backward compatible with the previous Kibox version and is extendable through software upgrades. The Kibox Cockpit software is used for parameterization, visualization, and analysis, permitting the integration of third-party devices. The user experience is improved by guidance with voice control and audio feedback. Further features include improved signal conditioning for the crank angle sensor, two CAN FD interfaces, and the option of cascading up to four Kibox2 units. The CAN FD interfaces support bit-rates of up to 8 Mbit/s and offer access per 9-pin D-SUB connectors.

Teensy 4.0 CAN Bus And CAN FD Training Board

This board carries an Arduino-compatible Teensy 4.0 microprocessor system, representing a CAN Bus and CAN FD training board. There are four onboard potentiometers, LEDs, an RGB LED, and switches. 

The board simulates analog inputs and then outputs the signal to the CAN bus in either Classical CAN or CAN FD format. Power is applied through an external +12 VDC feed with reverse voltage protection. External sensors can be connected via the QWIIC connector.
