X-Analyser includes a gateway component that can be used to duplicate frames from one CAN network on to another. This feature requires you to have two CAN channels configured in your project, you can then configure which channel to receive frames on and which channel to transmit them back out on.
X-Analyser has support for the CANopen higher layer protocol which is used for industrial automation and other off-highway applications. There are two main areas of support for which you must have the X-Analyser Professional edition; message/signal interpretation and message transmission.
- X-Analyser captures CAN_H & CAN_L signals for each CAN frame on CAN bus
- Can be used to carry out full CAN system audits
- Help identify which ECUs or areas of CAN bus is experiencing electrical problems
- See Videos here
Use the filter editor to filter CAN frames on the Raw Data Trace they can be filtered by; Channel, Data, Data Length, Direction, Frame ID, Frame Type and Timestamp. These can be used with a combination of logic functions to define certain criteria for Filtering.
With a CAN database loaded signals can be configured to show as gauges. With a combination of gauge styles available and gauge values can be defined such as; Min and Max values and Minor and Major Step Intervals.
The Interactive Generator (IG) allows the user to use a CANdb (*.dbc) file to interactively transmit CAN messages onto a system using the signals physical values that will automatically be converted to raw CAN data. Running in parallel with X-Analyser, the IG allows the user to create and change CAN messages on the fly. Transmission of a message can be carried out by user interaction (i.e. by clicking on a button) or by a timer with resolution 5ms which allows periodic transmitting.
ISO 15765 Mode 3 DTC’s
The ISO 15765 transport layer can be used to easily create a OBD Mode 3 request frame and also displays the response as Mode 3 DTC’s in Hexadecimal format.
ISO 15765 transmitter
Easily create a Mode 3 transmitter when the ISO 15765 Higher Layer Protocol has been added.
J1939 Signals Database
X-analyser Professional Edition comes with a J1939 database where signals can be selected and source address defined so they can be displayed in a Signals Panel, Gauge or Scope.
Within the J1939 Raw Trace tab available with X-analyser Professional CAN frames can be expanded to show the signals within that frame.
The Object Transmitter can be used to create CAN frames and transmit them onto a network. Standard and Extended ID’s can be selected, also Transmitters can be sent periodically by selecting Auto-Repeat and defining the time interval in milliseconds.
With a CAN database loaded signals can be selected for the scope to displayed and plotted. Points on the scope can be selected to show the value at a certain time. The scope can also be exported to CSV format to be opened and worked with in Excel.
The signals editor can be used to create parts of a CAN database on the fly, what’s created can be configure to a signals panel, gauges or scope.
With a CAN database loaded signals can be configured to the signals panel to show physical values. The signals can be displayed numerically or symbolically.
Signals Search Function.
CAN databases when loaded can be searched using the signals search function. Quotation marks can also be used to search for a whole name i.e. “Engine RPM”.
Symbolic and Numeric Values.
X-analyser can now have the same signals displayed more than once on a signals panel, gauge or scope. Within a signals panel the same signal can be displayed more than once with each as a symbolic or numeric value.
UDS DTC reader
X-analyser now has a UDS DTC reader, once configured in the transport protocol for the UDS DTC reader. It shall read and clear UDS DTC’s with the option to set the DTC Status Mask so different ECU’s can be read.
