Gryphon 2



GRYPHON ® 2 is a hardware adapter that provides remote connectivity for multiplexed automation and automotive communication networks. GRYPHON ® 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.

The GRYPHON ® 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 (canbus), 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 see Gryphon 2® / S-CAT Modules data sheet.

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.
