Press Release Summary:

Data Analysis Software tests and maintains CAN networks.

Jun 16, 2014 - Suited for industrial and automotive systems, IXXAT canAnalyser v3 supports up to 64 CAN channels simultaneously with Multi-Board Support, and displays information by means of uniform time base. Signal transmit module enables network devices to be simulated on process level without underlying CAN communication having to be known in detail. Statistics scripts, for analysis of frequency distributions, repeat times, and response/run-times, are in source code and can be adapted to user requirements.

Original Press Release

CanAnalyser 3 - Now Even More Powerful

Press release date: Jun 06, 2014

The IXXAT canAnalyser is a powerful analysis tool for development, test and maintenance of CAN networks, suitable for both, industrial and automotive systems. HMS Industrial Networks now releases canAnalyser Version 3 with improved functionality and user interface.

New features

The IXXAT canAnalyser now supports up to 64 CAN channels simultaneously with the new "Multi-Board Support", and displays information by means of a uniform time base.

For modules using simultaneous access to multiple CAN channels, Multi-Board Support brings additional benefits - with the trace module for example, the canAnalyser becomes an extremely powerful datalogger solution. A particularly impressive feature is the new signal transmit module with which network devices can be stimulated very quickly and easily - on process level without underlying CAN communication having to be known in detail.

Also new in Version 3 is the extended level of portability, with which measurement configurations can be copied to different measurement computers with no loss of function.

Also, database support provided by the canAnalyser has been extended considerably, now allowing the import of different databases into the configuration. For data interpretation, the databases are merged into one overall network database by the canAnalyser.

The newly added statistics scripts, for analysis of frequency distributions, repeat times, response/run-times for example, are in the source code (C#) and can be adapted to user-specific requirements very quickly.

Moreover, new examples for the integrated programming interface and canAnalyser Scripting Host means it is now even easier to adapt the canAnalyser to different applications.

Improved signal interpretation means quicker error detection
The completely revised signal interpretation enables statistical information to be analysed at a glance together with process parameters - such as in the new graphics/signal module. This is particularly helpful when errors occur or service is required because the grouping of specific process parameters and network quality indicators (such as fault telegrams per time unit or bus load) means problems can be identified quickly.

Improved user interface
Other news include the new, advanced user interface with an array of different functions for laying out analysis windows perfectly on the screen, and switchover between different user configurations using a hotkey.

Intuitive window synchronisation, in which all information windows jump to the same message with a double click, provides the user a quick overview of the events at a defined point in time.

Discounted price until end of July
canAnalyser 3 is available now - HMS is offering canAnalyser 3 (standard version) with 30% off for orders placed by 31/7/2014.
