Part No: MPST-CAN-CAN-Bus-Tester-2
Electrical Signal Quality Tester for CAN / CANopen / DeviceNet / J1939
The CAN-BUS Tester 2 is a comprehensive test tool for analyzing the electrical signal properties and detecting cabling problems in CAN, CANopen, DeviceNet, or J1939 installations. The CAN tester is designed to assist engineers to troubleshoot devices, find communication errors, and avoid unplanned network shutdowns.
- Easy and Fast Error Determination
- Prevention of Downtimes
- Maximized Availability
Easily Detect Electrical Signal and Cabling Problems
The CAN-BUS Tester 2 automatically analyzes the physical layer of CAN, CANopen, DeviceNet, and J1939 networks and visually displays the signal quality for each connected device separately, helping users to quickly locate and correct errors.
The test results expose communication issues that pertain to individual devices, general communication errors, or the overall network. A built-in scilloscope function displays the signal shape and reveals potential signal reflections.
The CAN-BUS Tester 2 is designed to automatically analyze communication problems based on electrical issues without the need for a separate oscilloscope or expertise in electrical engineering.
Extensive Software Functionality Accelarates Error Detection
The data collected with the CAN-BUS Tester 2 is processed by the accompanying software package. The test results plus the deduced information, e.g. the signal quality, are displayed in a graphical user interface that also includes an integrated storage oscilloscope with message frame analysis.
The intuitive and user-friendly interface allows the user to perform an automatic evaluation of the network and to create an extensive test report. If further analysis of the test results is desired, the CAN tester software is able to export the test results as CSV files and graphics.
The CAN-BUS Tester 2 enables a maintenance engineer to quickly and accurately pin-point trouble-spots in the network.
Early Error Detection Resulting in Maximum Uptime
The CAN-BUS Tester 2 is an ideal companion tool in the early network installation and commissioning phase. The Tester helps to identify communication and cabling problems well before the network is fully commissioned.
In addition, maintenance engineers can implement a preventive maintenance strategy by using the CAN-BUS Tester 2 to generate a test protocol of a newly commissioned network that serves as a baseline.
Deviations in the network are easily detected at an early stage by comparing the baseline information with a current test run. This information is essential for effectively planning maintenance work and to avoid unplanned shutdowns.
As a result, the plant runs with an optimal Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
