CANexplorer 4

Short description:

Modular-based and efficient fieldbus-analyzing

The CANexplorer 4 is an absolutely new developed field bus-analyzing software with a significantly enhanced range of functions and highly improved handling. The advanced modular concept opens up completely new possibilities in the range of analysis and data recording of the entire CAN bus data transfer.

During the software’s development process, special emphasis was put on intuitive handling, a large range of functions and flexible operational capability. Therefore, a protocol processing is implemented which allows an interpretation to CANopen and J1939. Further protocols can simply be added via update.

Test-setups can be quickly and clearly generated via "Drag&Drop" and are being additionally displayed in a project tree. As far as the processing of CAN data is concerned, the new CANexplorer 4 provides various functions, like classical "text-based" traces, graphs, bar graphs, LEDs, filters and triggers.

Finally, the multi-thread support is also implemented on the CANexplorer 4 again. It enables support for the parallel usage next to other applications as well as the visualization with various modules at the same time.

Data processing
CANexplorer 4 offers various functions for processing CAN-data, e.g. classical text-based traces, graphs, bar graphs, LEDs, filters and triggers. Generating a test set-up can be carried out by connecting different functional elements via ‘Drag & Drop’. This enables the software to consequently display complex processes in a visual and common manner.

Visualisation
You can adapt the data visualisation by defining triggers and filters. It is also possible to take an active part in the bus communication and generate and transmit messages that are also shown in a  visualisation. Have your telegrams sent manually, fully automatic or via trigger.

Data abstraction
Use an integrated protocol abstraction for automatically interpreting data to CANopen and J1939. The CAN-data is then available as pre-processed and ‘readable’ information. Further protocol stacks can easily be added with updates. All proprietary protocols and Raw CAN-data can be processed with a manual symbol editor. This tool is used for defining symbols and translating the payload of a CAN-frame into comprehensible values.

Parallel processes
CANexplorer 4 obtains a multi-thread support for parallel usage next to other applications running on a PC and the visualization of various modules at the same time.
