GRYPHON ® 2 is a hardware adapter that provides remote connectivity for
multiplexed automation and automotive communication networks.
® 2 doesn’t require any programming and is ready to run
out-of-the-box as a stand-alone product. It uses an Ethernet connection
to provide a high-speed user interface. Users can interface to the
GRYPHON ® 2 by either using Dearborn Group’s Hercules high
performance analyzer or writing their own applications using the
provided C++ libraries.
2 has three expansion slots that lets you install numerous
optional Plug-In Modules designed to support specific protocols. The
benefit of this capability includes the ability to support multi-client
connection (e.g., running two client connections – one Hercules
application and one user-written test application).
Supported Protocols: CAN (CAN bus), GMLAN, GMUART, Honda,
ISO9141-2, ISO11898 (CAN), ISO11992, ISO15765, J1850 GM (Class 2), J1850
Ford (SCP), J1850 DCX, J1939, J1962, J2284, J2411 (GM SW), J2534,
KWP2000 (ISO14230), LIN, SWCAN, UBP.
The part number for each Plug-In Module option is
DG-GRYPH-MOD-X (where the ‘X’ represents an alphabetic letter of a
specific Plug-In Module.) Refer to the
Gryphon 2® Data Sheet for a list of modules that are supported. Also

Note: You must also order at least one
Plug-In Module for your GRYPHON® 2
to communicate using the protocol of the selected Plug-In Module.

||Super CAN Analysis Tool 3 (S3) – This approved
GMLAN CAN analyzer solution bundles our next generation S-CAT
hardware and Hercules software package to support advanced
communication with in-vehicle networks. It uses the CAN (low-speed,
mid-speed and high-speed) protocol, and lets you add Class 2 and LIN
protocols that are supported in software. It is ideal for
diagnostics, simulation and custom applications.
Note: These programs can be used with
the Gryphon, S-CAT and S-CAT2 products.
