Put CAN and CAN FD busses to the acid test

With the new PCAN-Diag FD, we are launching a mobile and low-priced solution for the analysis and error diagnosis of CAN and CAN FD networks. Thanks to the handheld, diagnostics on the protocol and physical level are possible, such as symbolic representations of incoming messages, recording and playback, measurement of the bus load or the termination. An oscilloscope specially designed for CAN allows an intuitive examination of individual CAN frames. By saving data and images, additional evaluations can be carried out subsequently.

Compared to the previous version, we have improved the size and resolution of the display as well as the device handling. In addition to the rotary button, four configurable hotkeys provide quick access to various functions. With USB-C and Micro-HDMI the connections were modernized. The latter is used for display output on an external monitor or beamer which makes the device ideal for presentations and training sessions. The PCAN-Diag FD has internal rechargeable batteries and can be recharged with the power supply or the optional charging station with quick-charge function.

Via projects the device can be preconfigured for different CAN busses and allows a well-founded analysis in small and extensive areas. With the PCAN-Diag FD, engineers and service technicians from the fields of vehicle, aircraft, machine, and plant construction or automation have a mobile alternative to a computer with a CAN interface.
