Data Logging with the GL Logger Family

The GL Loggers are special automotive data recorders which can be used in test vehicles or on test benches. They record measurement values and acquire the data communications of CAN/CAN FD, LIN and FlexRay bus systems.

Beside bus communication you can store in addition internal ECU parameters via CCP/XCP and diagnostics as well as measured values of digital and analog inputs in a time-synchronous manner.

 

Advantages

  • Flexible loggers for test fleet operators and individual testing tasks
  • Permanent use in automotive and commercial vehicles due to low current consumption in Sleep/Standby mode
  • Robust equipment for summer and winter trials
  • Reliable during long-duration recordings
  • Event-driven recording for data reduction
  • Supports the early quality assurance of the later mass production

Special Functions


Diagnostics


Diagnostic Functions of the GL Loggers

The loggers of the GL family have a comfortable diagnostic interface and thus allow a more comprehensive collection of vehicle data. The diagnostic data are cyclical or event-driven read out from the ECU of vehicle and time synchronized with all other logging data recorded.

The parameterization of the diagnostic request is as simple as symbolic choice of CDD, PDX and ODX and MDX files with the help of the 'Vector Logger Configurator'. The loggers support the common diagnostic protocols UDS, KWP2000 and OBD II.

An example - CAN diagnostics workflow:


   


CCP/XCP


Logging of ECU Parameters over CCP/XCP

The CCP/XCP logger option lets you time-synchronously log internal ECU parameters via cyclic DAQ lists or the polling mode. After an unexpected disconnection the GL loggers automatically restart the CCP/XCP connection.

A CCP/XCP license must be installed on the logger. The license includes depending on the logger CCP/XCP on CAN, XCP on FlexRay and for the VX modules XCP on Ethernet.

Supported protocols are:

Protocol Loggers DAQ Polling Seed & Key
CCP/XCP on CAN All GL loggers yes yes yes
XCP on FlexRay  GL4000/GL5000 family only yes - yes
XCP on Ethernet GL3000/GL4000/GL5000
family only for recording via
Vector VX modules with
serial POD and CSM
EtherCAT XCP Gateway 
yes - -

To implement Seed & Key CANape 8.0 or higher is required.

Input/ Outputs


Inputs and Outputs for Further Measurement Tasks and to Control External Hardware

All GL loggers have multiple analog inputs as well as digital inputs and outputs. For loggers of the GL3000/GL4000/GL5000 families, it is possible to increase the number of analog inputs by means of an expansion board.

You can use the analog and digital inputs of GL loggers to log measurement values of external modules time-synchronously to the bus communication. The digital outputs can be used to control external modules, e.g. to turn them on or off.



Wireless Data Transfer


GL2000/GL3000/GL4000/GL5000 families - Wireless data transmission over WLAN or 4G/LTE

The Wireless LAN and 4G/LTE logger options are available for wireless transmission of logging data from vehicles to a server as follows:

  • GL2000 family: Option 4G/LTE

  • GL3000/GL4000/GL5000 families: Option WLAN and 4G/LTE

To reduce the volume of data, you may transmit just a subset of the data. The loggers initiate the connection to your server. The trigger condition for initiating a connection is configurable.

The ML Server Software saves the logged data in a separate structure for each logger and then automatically converts it to the desired data format (e.g. BLF, ASC, MDF). If necessary, this software can upload a new configuration from your server to the GL loggers. The loggers update this configuration after a restart.
