Commercial Vehicles

Ruggedize and extend the communication networks of your commercial vehicles.

Commercial Vehicles and Agricultural Engineering

Special-purpose vehicles – transportation, trucks, farm machinery or non-road mobile machinery – usually have sensors and actuators which need to be connected to control units (ECUs or HMI). To do this manufacturers rely on CAN and use specific higher layer protocols like CANopen or SAE J1939.

To satisfy the growing demand for fast data transmissions additional protocols like CAN FD and Industrial Ethernet protocols are also on the verge to be introduced.

Our products not only are used during the development of new components for commercial vehicles and in the area of test benches for testing components and systems but also support the communication issues on up and running systems in the field.

In addition to our product range, we also offer OEM solutions of our products or develop completely customized hardware and software on behalf of our customers. An overview of our services can be found under  Tech Services
Applications for Commercial Vehicles

Commercial Vehicles Application Samples

Commercial Application Sample Topology

Increasing system reliability and interconnection

Ixxat Bridges, Repeaters and Gateways are designed for harsh environmental conditions. They are used e.g. for connecting control cabinets with crane systems – using e.g. an Ethernet bridge – or for line protection and to achieve an increased system reliability.

Protocol software and implementation

Ixxat Protocol Software packages enable easy implementation of different protocol standards into customer components. This enables e.g. the connection of an intelligent control joystick to the SAE J1939 based vehicle system, using the Ixxat J1939 stack. At this, we support our customers also with implementation as well as with hardware and software development services.
