    - Bus Voltages (CAN supply voltage and shield voltage)
    - Common Mode Voltage
    - CAN Levels (absolute / differential)
    - Bus Wiring (Short-circuits, interruptions, loop resistances, cable length)
    - Node Measurement (Quality level, Disturbance free voltage range, Edge steepness, Oscilloscope disp.)
    - Protocol Monitor
  • Including six apps, additional apps via license

Fields of Application

  • Commissioning of CAN bus systems
