J1939 Add-in for the PCAN-Diag FD

2022-10-07 • Add-in extends handheld device to J1939 monitor

For our handheld device PCAN-Diag FD for diagnosing communication on a CAN bus, a separately available add-in is now available to also analyze J1939 data traffic. The SAE J1939 standard describes communication in utility vehicles via CAN.

The CAN data traffic is interpreted according to the included J1939 database and is represented in a way that is understandable for the user. In addition, the add-in includes functions such as the decoding of multi-packet messages, address claiming, and the handling of diagnostic information.

The J1939 Add-in is activated with a device-bound license file which can also be purchased afterwards for a PCAN-Diag FD. Updates for the included J1939 database are included for a period of 2 years.

For existing users of the PCAN-Diag FD, the installation of the current software package on the device and the update of the firmware to version 1.4.2 are additional requirements.
