The MasterCAN data converter series by Technoton serves as an interfacing and transformation tool between CAN J1939/71, J1708 (SAE J1587), and RS-485/232 (Modbus RTU) communication devices, designed for vehicle telematics (GPS vehicle tracking) and industrial automation (IIoT).
The MasterCAN data converter is suitable for integrated sensors and peripherals with different interfaces into single telematics and remote management system. It filters J1939/71 data (PGNs) and Modbus messages and simplifies the configuration of a terminal unit for tracking, controller, and display.
The MasterCAN V-Gate module reads messages from an SAE J1587 and SAE J1939 network, filters and merges the data into single SAE J1939 messages, and transfers the processed data via the output CAN-interface. The converter is suitable for vehicles made by Volvo, Renault, John Deere, American automotive manufacturers, and other machinery equipped with SAE J1708 (SAE J1587) networks.
- Versatility – can be used for vehicle telematics, IIoT applications, industrial automation projects
- Flexible configuration of input/output SPN, Modbus registers, data baud rate using service software
- Safe CAN bus and J1708 bus reading using contactless readers (optional)
- Conformity with automotive standards of the EU and EAEU
- Power supply from on-board electrical network without extra power adapters
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).
The CANCrocodile product line was created for safe and sound data reading from a vehicle CAN Bus network. The contactless reader can be used for vehicle telematics, GPS tracking systems, and monitoring multiple CAN Bus parameters of vehicle operation. These include speed, RPM, oil pressure & temperature, fuel volume & consumption, and more. The data reading takes place [...]
The Axiomatic AX140x00 Protocol Converter is an electrically isolated gateway between up to 2 SAE J1939 ports, CANopen, SAE J1587, RS485 or Modbus RTU and other combinations on request. The design addresses the harsh environments of engine applications. The CAN Bus gateway operates on 12 VDC or 24 VDC nominal power. A block library is available for modeling the converter [...]
We at Copperhill Technologies have designed an SAE J1708-to-UART breakout board, and we are in the process of adding it to our e-commerce website. However, what we learned during the development is that the device is in need of some massive software support as I will explain in the following.First of all, to go into [...]
The following is an excerpt from A Comprehensible Guide To J1939 by Wilfried Voss. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Truck and Bus Control and Communications Subcommittee has developed a family of standards concerning the design and use of devices that transmit electronic signals and control information among vehicle components. SAE J1939 and its companion documents have quickly become the [...]
The CR-HD unit is the perfect tool for diagnosing and clearing heavy duty diagnostic trouble codes. It covers SAE J1587, SAE J1708 and SAE J1939 protocols for accessing Engine, Transmission, Brakes and more. It features a 2.8” full color LCD display and is ergonomic, highly portable and easy to use. Perfect Scan Tool for Heavy Duty Truck works on [...]
As part of our business strategy of providing prototyping solutions for the CAN Bus (including SAE J1939, ISOBUS, NMEA 2000) we have decided to focus more on the Arduino platform, specifically the Arduino Due. The Due, while providing the power of an ARM Cortex M3 processor, comes with two CAN Bus ports per default, however, lacking [...]
SAE J1708 is a standard used for serial communications between ECUs on a heavy duty vehicle and also between a computer and the vehicle. With respect to Open System Interconnection model (OSI), J1708 defines the physical layer. Common higher layer protocols that operate on top of J1708 are SAE J1587 and SAE J1922. The protocol [...]
First of all, let me point out that this post is merely about monitoring SAE J1708/J1587 data traffic, i.e. the mere reading of data frames. SAE J1708, the hardware layer, is based on RS485, however, with a small hardware modification that allows message collision detection and prevention. In the following, I am using an RS485 [...]
