Multi-Functional Telematics Gateway Processes SAE J1939, ISOBUS Parameters For Predictive Maintenance

Posted by Industry News on

Technoton CANup Edge computing telematics gateway

The  CANUp telematics gateway by Technoton represents a multi-functional telematics unit for use in advanced machinery telematics systems. Advanced machinery includes mobile and stationary objects, which have many operation monitoring parameters for engines, power generators, boilers, various additional equipment, and other assemblies.

The core features of the CANUp telematics gateway include:

  • Reading over 10,000 machine operation parameters, thus the gateway can be adapted for different machinery types,
  • Automatic parsing of J1939/71 and ISOBUS messages,
  • Registers "quick" parameters, which have 0.1-10 seconds step,
  • User notifications on Events per email and SMS,
  • Generating Reports when Events are detected. 

Event recognition is an essential feature for implementing a predictive maintenance approach and avoiding machinery breakdown.

CANup areas of application include:

Vessel Telematics and Railroad Machinery Telematics and railroad equipment monitoring imply using additional sensors and reading data from onboard digital interfaces and standard analog sensors.

The CANUp telematics gateway simultaneously receives data from 16  fuel level sensors, 20 flow meters, plus more than a hundred parameters from the SAE J1939 (CAN Bus) network.

Additional sensors are connected over wire using the CAN J1939/S6 interface ( S6 Technology) or over the air - BLE (S7 Technology).

Agricultural Machinery Telematics - Parsing ISOBUS

Agricultural Machinery Telematics - Parsing ISOBUS

ISOBUS is a communication standard based on J1939/71, used in agricultural machines and equipment. 

ISOBUS contains special parameters of attached equipment allowing to evaluate equipment status, duration of emptying tanks, position angles, feeding speed, depth of immersion like: "Assembly Unit Identification", "Dump Truck Body Information", "Primary or Rear Hitch Roll and Pitch", "Auxiliary Valve 30 Flow", "Secondary or Front Hitch Status" and other machinery-related parameters.

Power Genset Monitoring, Boilers/Heaters Monitoring


When it comes to stationary object telematics, it's imperative to get information on the operation process and machinery's output performance, e.g., for diesel power generators - current and voltage of each of phases, reactive and nominal power, etc.

The CANUp gateway gets data from the diesel genset controller over the Modbus RTU interface through the  MasterCAN RS2CAN data converter. The data is combined with messages from additional wired and wireless sensors and sent to a web-based server and users via email and SMS.

Fuel Monitoring in Explosive Areas

Fuel monitoring in explosive areas

Explosive areas include fuel storage tanks, corporate gas stations, fuel trucks, mines, and quarries. The safest way of fuel monitoring in such places is to use wireless fuel level sensors.

The CANUp telematics gateway receives signals from ten wireless sensors over BLE (Bluetooth 4.X, S7 Technology) with an explosion-safety certificate and can be operated in zones 0, 1, and 2.

SAE J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator

SAE J1939 Starter Kit And Network Simulator

The 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. 

In order to establish a network, you need at least two nodes. That fact applies especially to CAN/J1939, where the CAN controller will 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.

The jCOM.J1939.USB gateway board is a high-performance, low-latency vehicle network adapter for SAE J1939 applications. The board supports the full SAE J1939 protocol according to J1939/81 Network Management (Address Claiming) and J1939/21 Transport Protocol (TP).
