HMS_web-icon_High performance


canAnalyser is available as "Mini", "Lite" and "Standard" version to meet customer requirements in terms of functionality and price in the best possible way.



Suitable for CAN, CAN FD, CANopen, SAE J1939 and LIN based systems – providing higher layer protocol interpretation.



The .NET interface of the canAnalyser provides the ability to extend the tool by adding own modules.



Receive and process messages in a timely manner even when bus loads and baud rates are high.


Flexible transmission

Stimulation of devices or systems through sending of one-off or cyclical messages and entire command-controlled message sequences.



Logging and online monitoring

Online analysis of message traffic with interpreted signal display or recording of messages with powerful trigger functions.

CANopen Module

CANopen Interpreter for canAnalyser

The CANopen-Module is an add-on module for the canAnalyser3 and provides the display of received layer-2 messages in CANopen notation. The messages are displayed in accordance with the configuration and the CAN-in-Automation specified communication objects, assigned to individual nodes, their content extracted and output in plaintext. In addition, it is possible to display the corresponding layer-2 messages of the protocol-specific interpretation.

The interpretation is based on a network model (analysis configuration) in which the individual nodes connected to the CANopen network to be analyzed are described. This description can be carried out by reading in device description files (EDS-, DCF- and XDD-files), by simple profile assignment (default configuration), by online node scan, or completely manually.

The central element of the canAnalyser is the control panel, that presents the comprehensive functions of the canAnalyser in a simple and clearly arranged manner. Using the control panel, the user can start and control the various function modules. All function modules of the canAnalyser are connected to virtual buses that are assigned to a real CAN, CAN FD or LIN controller (Ixxat PC/CAN interface). The virtual buses mean the measurement configuration is independent of the measurement computer and can therefore be copied directly to other measurement computers.
