SAE J1939 Diagnostic Device Includes a PGN, SPN Database

Posted by Industry News on

PEAK PCAN-Diag FD J1939 Add-in

The handheld PCAN-Diag FD device from PEAK-System supports diagnosing communication on a CAN (FD) network. In addition, a separately available extends the functionality to analyze SAE J1939 data traffic.

The SAE J1939 Standard describes communication in utility vehicles via CAN Bus. The standard specifies messages and data for transmitting diagnostic and control information using PGNs (Parameter Group Numbers) and SPNs (Suspect Parameter Numbers). Decoding multi-packet messages with payload data up to 1785 bytes and definition of up to 20 custom PGNs are possible.

The CAN Bus data traffic is analyzed utilizing the SAE J1939 database and presented in a way understandable for the user. In addition, the add-in includes functions such as decoding multi-packet messages, address claiming, and handling diagnostic information. The SAE J1939 add-in requires a device-bound license file, and it authorizes updates of the SAE J1939 database for two years.


  • Supports the SAE J1939 standard
  • Representation of SAE J1939 data interpreted according to PGN and SPN definitions
  • SAE J1939 database with all definitions and the included parameters
  • Definition of up to 20 custom PGNs
  • Decoding of multi-packet messages with payload data up to 1785 bytes
  • Support for address claiming
  • Display of DM and DTC diagnostic data
