(Hartford, WI) HED Inc. introduces the Diagnostic Tool, a software program that allows the customer to view real-time, system operating data generated by CANLink® J1939 Controlled Area Network (CAN) modules and systems using a PC or laptop. This Tool will enable users to determine if a problem is in the module itself or associated with either wiring or an external device.
The CANLink system simplifies control system design and installation for mobile equipment and machinery of all kinds. Replacing conventional wire harnesses with a 2-wire communication link, CANLink systems eliminate relay logic and fuses as well as enhance safety interlocks through microprocessor technology.
The Diagnostic Tool works by finding modules on the system and displaying their status on the monitor screen. If a module state is in the "OK" mode, the user can click on the module to open a module viewer. This viewer displays all the information about the module's inputs and outputs. Several viewers can be opened at a time to see if modules are working together.
Using the debug mode, the Diagnostic Tool can manipulate the inputs and outputs of CANLink modules during run time. In the debug mode mouse clicks can activate or deactivate an input and output.
