Housing and status display
The interface has a robust aluminium housing with protection class IP65. Due to the compact design and the high shock resistance COMfalcon® plus can be used in different areas of the automation and automotive industry. Two 14-segment display and nine LEDs always indicate the current operating status/error code of the device.
The COMfalcon® plus has four independent CAN channels and a Freescale PowerPC architecture. With WLAN/LAN and optional Bluetooth a connection to a diagnostic device is established. For the diagnosis, besides the CAN interfaces, various other interfaces like RS232 or K-Line are available.
Own embedded applications run directly on the COMfalcon® plus in LUA without the need for a third device (laptop or PC). Among other things, it is possible to create and implement your own information such as flash routines or ECU descriptions and thus access the CAN or file system, for example.
Furthermore, the embedded applications are portable and reusable for future Sontheim VCI generations.
Error frame detection
This function enables the monitoring and observation of a CAN network. The COMfalcon® plus has its own logic to detect error frames and to count up in a certain internal memory area. This is used to identify intermittently occurring errors such as fake messages of a CAN participant.
ID related level measurement – resistance measurement/current measurement
This function allows to read the CAN level also IO related and to measure active and passive terminating resistors, e.g. for different diagnoses on a vehicle or a machine. This is especially important if the network can lose data caused by short circuits, for example.
