Data Converter Transforms SAE J1939 and SAE 1708/1587 Messages Into Single SAE J1939 Data Frames

Posted by Industry News on

Technoton MasterCAN-V-GATE

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.

Features

  • 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

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).
