Wireless CAN bus network can be realized by two Kvaser Air Bridge Light HS interfaces. The Air Bridge creates a gateway between a classical wired CAN bus and a wireless network with the help of a prorietary protocol with low jitter and a high noise immunity. The interface is plug’n’play and automatically detects the baud rate of a network.
A free-of-charge tool for bi-directional conversion of SAE J1939 PGN – CAN Id can be downloaded for free. The tool enables the user to enter J1939 PDU fields (Priority, DP, PGN, Source Address) and convert it into a 29-bit CAN Identifier and vice-versa.
Updated versions of SENT-RS232 and SENT-CAN gateways, SAE J2716 converters, are available. The gateway newly offers two analogue output channels that can be mapped onto SENT channel data frame. Any signal encoded within the data field of a SENT frame can be converter into an analogue voltage value. The conversion parameters are configurable by the user, and can also be stored into the device’s non-volatile memory.
Kvaser has released two Mini PCI Express CAN interface cards with CAN FD support. Kvaser Mini PCI Express HS v2 is a single-channel CAN/CAN FD card Kvaser Mini PCI Express 2xHS v2 is a dual-channel CAN/CAN FD card Both interfaces are Mini PCI Type F2 form factor with small footprint (30 x 51mm) and support […]
100BASE-T1 is the Automotive Ethernet, also known as BroadR-Reach (OABR). We offer a bi-directional 100BASE-T1 Media Converter with a 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet) port. The interface enables the user to easily connect 100BASE-T1 (IEEE 802.3bw) devices, such as cameras, ECUs, and ADAS components, to a standard computer network.
We have finished an automation of a semi-automatic assembly line of steering wheel levers. Our task was to wire a cabinet and lay cables within the machine and also to develop a control software. The machine uses a Beckhoff PLC which controls FESTO servo controllers over an EtherCAT network and communicates with FESTO camera, too. […]
SENT to CAN and RS-232 Gateway/Interface for SAE J2716 (SENT protocol – Single Edge Nibble Transmission). The converter offers two bi-directional SENT channels, two analogue outputs, and either a CAN bus or RS-232. The channel parameters are configurable, and both Fast and Slow frames are supported (Fast, Short Serial, Enhanced Serial messages). A PC application for channel configuration, reception and transmission of SENT messages is available for free. A binary protocol can be used to integrate the interface into an existing system allowing the device to act as a SENT communication tester and a simulator.
LIN-RS232 and LIN-CAN are communication converters (gateways) between the LIN bus and RS-232 / CAN bus respectively. The gateway can be used to connect a LIN test station to the PLC of the assembly line. Source code examples can be provided so that the user can develop his own application for the device and flash the firmware it into the device over a bootloader.
The board for physical layer fault injection. With the help of swiches and potentiometers, the user can manually simulate faults into a differential bus. Many types of error can be injected: a missing termination, shorted differential pair (CAN_L, CAN_H), signal wires shorted to Gnd or Vdd, open Gnd or Vdd wires.
