GEMACcan bustester 2

The CANobserver® is a diagnosis device which is used for physical and logical long-term monitoring of CAN bus systems and has been designed as a stationary supplement to the CAN-Bus Tester 2. The CANobserver® is permanently implemented into the network, continuously monitors the data transfer and records it automatically for a period of up to ten years. On the basis of the physical properties of the CAN-Bus it recognizes system errors right in time and reports them immediately to the plant operator.

A slowly deteriorating signal quality can be detected in good time to avoid expensive system standstills. The CANobserver® is a unique device which ensures status-oriented maintenance. VDI/VDE has recognized this necessity as well. The new guideline 2184, published in 2007, explains how plant operators can guarantee reliable functioning and maintenance of their field bus systems.

NEW:The CAN-Bus Tester 2 is now available with two new modules: the Protocol Monitor CANopen for CANopen based bus systems and the bus system DeviceNet.

The bus systems and Protocol Monitors can be combined individually and activated by acquiring licenses.

The CAN-Bus Tester 2 is a universal diagnosis tool for the start up, analysis, monitoring, troubleshooting and service/maintenance of CAN bus systems. Typical problems which occur during the operation of CAN bus systems such as node failures, faults in the communication or complete standstill of the plant, often have their origins in the physical bus characteristics. The CAN-Bus Tester 2 provides an overview of the signal conditions on the bus, which helps you to locate and rectify frequently occurring error causes instantly. During the installation phase of CAN bus plants the integrated wiring test is especially useful. It is possible to check the bus cabeling by using different measurement methods and thus the transfer properties are ensured. You can also perform comparing measurements directly on the running plant over its lifetime and thus prevent standstills.

For long-term monitoring of CAN bus systems GEMAC developed the CANobserver®. Both devices – the CAN-Bus Tester 2 and the CANobserver® – form the CAN-Bus diagnosis family.
