J1939 Add-in 6 Version History

2018-07-20 - Version 6.2.0 - Part of PCAN-Explorer 6.2.0


  • New feature to automatically calculate J1939 rolling counters and checksums when transmitting the PGNs TSC1, XBR, AEBS2, TC3, SAS, CN, ENGSC, and ENGSA

2017-06-09 - Version 6.0.12 - Part of PCAN-Explorer 6.0.12

Bug fixes:

  • The industry group drop-down list of the J1939 NAME field in the Properties window was empty and no industry group could be selected
  • If no data length was specified for a J1939PG multipacket symbol, any variable located beyond data byte 7 was not initialized with its default value
  • When the last J1939 connection was removed from the project, the message list columns were not updated to the non-J1939 column configuration
  • Sending a J1939 message by assigning a signal value, e.g. in a VBS macro, did not set the message type of the automatically created transmit message correctly, the message did not have the J1939 tag
  • String variables with a length greater than 8 bytes in multipacket J1939 symbols were only decoded when the variable had an SPN value assigned


  • J1939 symbols are now only assigned to messages that have the J1939 message type (which show a J1939 tag in the Type column). Previously, J1939 symbols were also assigned to 29-bit messages, for example when the protocol of the connection was changed from CAN to J1939 and the Receive/Transmit lists already contained 29-bit messages

2017-04-07 - Version 6.0.11 - Part of PCAN-Explorer 6.0.11

Bug fixes:

  • When a J1939 transmit message was edited, the Priority field in the Edit Message dialog box was not correctly initialized so it could contain an incorrect value
  • J1939 database fixed: SPNs 695, 696, and 897 were missing in message TSC1

2016-12-12 - Version 6.0.9 - Part of PCAN-Explorer 6.0.9


  • The PGN field in the Edit Message dialog box is now editable when a custom J1939 transmit message is created
  • J1939 messages have their own icon in the Type column of transmit lists, and messages that require the transport protocol for transmission have an additional mark
  • J1939 database updated (2016-11)

2016-10-13 - Version 6.0.5 - Part of PCAN-Explorer 6.0.5


  • J1939 database updated (2016-07)

2016-09-02 - Version 6.0.3 - Part of PCAN-Explorer 6.0.3


  • The J1939 database now includes SLOT values according to J1939-71 Appendix A. SPN and SLOT value assignments are used to show range names according to J1939-71 chapter 5.1.5

Bug fixes:

  • If the system was not restarted for a long time, the J1939 Add-in returned wrong timestamps so that cyclic J1939 messages (non-multipacket) could no longer be transmitted
  • Transport protocol read session were refused by sending a TCPM.Abort message even if the connection was in monitoring mode and/or the claimed address did not correspond to the incoming request

2016-06-28 - Version 6.0.2 - Part of PCAN-Explorer 6.0.2

  • J1939 database updated (2016-03)

2016-06-09 - Version 6.0.1 - Part of PCAN-Explorer 6.0.1
