Powerful CAN tool for development,
testing and service
With the canAnalyser, Ixxat offers a very powerful and versatile tool for the development, testing and servicing of CAN-based networks. The canAnalyser is already widely used, especially in the area of industrial automation and automotive industry.
The software is available as standard and light version. In the standard version the canAnalyser has powerful functions covering many areas of application:
- Online monitoring of bus traffic
- Transmission of single or cyclic messages and entire message sequences
- Parallel monitoring of several CAN networks
- Recording of CAN messages with various trigger conditions
- Statistical evaluation of message traffic
- Data interpretation and graphic display of message contents over the time axis
- Creation of small batch programs
An integral part of the canAnalyser is the database based processing of CAN messages. Each CAN identifier can be allocated a message name and the signals transmitted in the data field can be interpreted and displayed as physical parameters in different ways. The canAnalyser also comes with an import and export functionality for the widely used CANdb format.
Due to the open programming interface, the canAnalyser can be extended by the user's own modules or user interfaces. With common Windows development systems (e.g. Visual Studio.NET), new, independent modules can be developed and added to the canAnalyser. It is possible for users to create interfaces for their systems, or for certain devices or tools with system specific analysis functions.
The Scripting Host provides the canAnalyser user with a powerful interface that combines the advantages of graphic Windows programs with the flexibility of scripts. By using the Scripting Host the canAnalyser can be quickly and easily adapted to specific measuring and analysis tasks. This allows the user to simulate devices and protocols, or to test existing devices in a simulated residual bus system and to put them into operation. The scripting host supports the standard script languages C# and Visual Basic .NET. The incorporation of DLLs also enables the integration of further modules.
Further functions are provided by optional modules e.g. for the protocol specific display of messages in CANopen, DeviceNet or SAE J1939-based systems.
