MasterCAN Tool

CAN bus analyser – simulator

MasterCAN Tool is a powerful software-and-hardware CAN SAE J1939 analytical tool for engineers, programmers and other professionals in the area of design and servicing vehicle electronic units, telematics systems and onboard equipment – fuel sensors, trackers, gateways.

MasterCAN Tool is designed for CAN SAE j1939 data monitoring, analysis as well as PGN message emulation and modelling. MasterCAN Tools is also used for CAN j1939/S6 Telematics interface diagnsotics and configuration.

Main tasks solved by MasterCAN Tool:

  • design, configuration and testing CAN bus telematics equipment (SAE J1939 standard for data exchange)
  • CAN message analysis, automatic parsing and storing data logs when connected to standard vehicle CANbus
  • reading and identification of electronic control units (ECUs) malfunctions (DTC)
  • monitoring operational status if equipment employing S6 Technology

Advantages of MasterCAN Tool

  • Parsing and displaying PGNs and SPN names and measurement units as text
  • Displaying current values of parameters (SPN) in decimal and HEX formats
  • Recording values of parameters to a file (logging)
  • Emulation of individual PGN with SPN that can be edited or creation of PGN groups and their transmission to CAN bus
  • Allows selection between 11/29 bit length identifiers during CAN message emulation
  • Configurable send/receive data baud rate – 100/125/250/500/1000 kbit/s
  • Simple, easy and safe connection to CANbus with CANCrocodile contactless reader
  • An option to enable the terminal resistor of CAN bus using software
  • CAN bus load indicator
  • Power supply from USB of PC or vehicle’s onboard electrical network

For monitoring PGN received from CAN bus (SAE J1939) or using S6 Technology you should open the Monitor tab. This tab allows you to view and analyze in real time SPN of all received PGN which comply with SAE J1939 Standard.

Monitoring PGN received from CAN bus

Imitator tab allows transferring PGN from the list of set into CAN Bus (SAE J1939) or using S6 Technology.

Transferring PGN from the list of set into CAN Bus In PGN editors of S6, FMS, FMSII, Telematics, J1939 sets SPN numeric values are available for editing.

Editing SPN numeric valuesThe RAW tab is designed to create and transmit user (test) PGN to CAN bus or using S6 Technology and to monitor and carry out detailed analysis of user (test) and all other PGN received from Units using S6 Technology or from CAN bus with a possibility to view their ID (CAN_ID) and raw data (DATA).
