FRC-EP170

The FRC-EP170 comes with a variety of different automotive communication interfaces. It is ideal for applications in which several bus systems are to be merged into a single device with its own processing power – e.g. for logging, gateway and residual bus simulation applications.

All applications run on the device, a PC is only needed for configuration or stimulation/visualization of data, as the actual intelligence – for e.g. the transport protocols – is outsourced to the embedded platform.

HMS provides with  Ixxat ACT (Advanced Configuration Tool) an easy to use Windows-based tool enabling customers to configure the device via drag-&-drop.
