COMfalcon®

Extremely flexible CAN interface with num­erous inter­faces and po­wer­ful PowerPC. Ideal for use in de­vel­op­ment, pro­duc­tion and service app­li­cations

Key Features

  • 4× independent CAN interface
  • WLAN interface
  • RS232, RS422, RS485, K-Line
  • Protocol handling
  • Optional with data logging, scripting, CAN voltage level oscilloscope functionality
  • Optional with integrated SD card
  • Compact housing with protection class IP65

Description

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® can be used in different areas of the automation and automotive industry. Two 14-segment displays and nine LEDs always indicate the current operating status/error code of the device.

Interfaces
COMfalcon® has four CAN interfaces in total and is based on the CAN interface CIN with Freescale PowerPC architecture. The con­nec­tion to the diagnostic PC is established via WLAN/LAN. In addition to the CAN chan­nels, various other inter­faces such as RS232, RS422, RS485 or K-Line are available for diagnostic purposes.

Error frame detection
With this feature COMfalcon® is able to take over the trou­ble­sho­oting and dia­gno­sis in a CAN network. The inter­face has its own logic, which de­tects error frames and counts them in an inter­nal memory. Thus sporadic errors, such as the fal­si­fi­ca­tion of mes­sages by a par­ti­ci­pant in the network, can be detected.

ID related level measurement – resistance meas­ure­ment/current measurement
This feature enables the CAN levels to be read in IO-related as well as active and passive ter­mi­nation re­sis­tors to be measured and thus, for example, to carry out fault diagnosis on a vehicle or machine. This is par­ti­cu­lar­ly im­por­tant if data is lost from the network, which can be caused by short cir­cuits, for example.
