Additional modules for CANopen, J1939 and DeviceNet


The canAnalyser is a powerful, multi-purpose analysis tool for the development, test and maintenance of CAN, CAN FD, LIN, CANopen, DeviceNet and SAE J1939 networks. The software package is modular, open and expandable.

The canAnalyser is available in 'Standard' and 'Lite' versions. Even the basic version offers functions that cover a large range of applications. Additional application areas are accessible with optional modules for CANopen, DeviceNet and SAE J1939, or with custom .NET modules.

Modular concept

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.

  • Stimulation of devices or systems through sending of one-off or cyclical messages and entire message sequences
  • Recording of message traffic, e.g. in the case of sporadically occurring errors, with highly adaptable trigger conditions
  • Online analysis of message traffic with interpreted signal display and graphic display of message contents on a time axis
  • Data interpretation for CANopen, DeviceNet, SAE J1939
  • Generation of command-controlled message sequences


  • The canAnalyser is able to reliably receive and process in a timely manner messages even when bus loads and baud rates are high


  • Due to the flexible configuration and the possibility to start modules multiple and individually arrange them, the canAnalyser can be adapted to any analysis task
  • The .NET interface of the canAnalyser provides the ability to extend the tool by adding own modules
