CANexplorer 4 is a completely newly developed fieldbus analysis software with a significantly extended range of functions and considerably improved handling. The advanced modular concept opens up completely new possibilities for analysis and data recording of the entire CAN bus data transfer. During the development of the software, special emphasis was placed on intuitive handling, a large range of functions and flexible application capabilities. For this purpose a protocol processing is implemented, which allows an interpretation according to CANopen and J1939. Further protocols can be added easily via update.
Measurement setups are created quickly and clearly by drag and drop and are also displayed in a project tree. The new CANexplorer provides 4 different elements for processing CAN data, such as classic textbased traces, graphs, bar graphs, LEDs, filters and triggers. Of course, multithreaded support for parallel operation alongside other applications and visualization with different function modules is also implemented at the same time.
CANexplorer 4 offers various functions to process CAN data. In addition to the classic text-based traces, messages can be defined as signals and displayed in bar graphs, tachometers, LEDs, graphs and text.
The creation of a measurement setup is done by an intuitive graphical connection via drag and drop of the individual function modules. Thus even complex processes can be displayed visually in a simple and comprehensible way.
By using triggers and filters, the data visualization can be adapted to user-specific requirements. The new CANexplorer also enables interactive participation in bus traffic by generating and sending messages. Processing is either manual, fully automatic or initiated by a trigger.
In addition, integrated protocol processing enables automatic interpretation according to CANopen and J1939. The CAN data is then directly available as pre-processed readable information. Further protocol stacks can be added with updates. For all proprietary protocols and raw CAN data the integrated manual symbol editor can be used to define symbols.
With its multithread support, the CANexplorer 4 allows parallel operation alongside other applications on a PC and visualization with different function modules at the same time.
