UniCAN 2

Acquisition of measurement data and ECU information in road test, endurance test, driver dynamics, benchmarks, etc. in the field of:

  • Passenger cars, trucks, busses, off-road vehicles, recreational vehicles
  • Agricultural, construction and special purpose vehicles
  • Aircraft, trains and military vehicles

In particular, also suitable for test and validation of new technologies such as:

  • Electro-, hybrid- and fuel cell drives

The FPGA-/µ-controller- based CAN bus data loggers of the UniCAN 2 family have features that are otherwise - if at all - only found in - PC-based devices. At the same time they offer unique data security.

  • Fail-safe data recording: Neither in the event of a supply voltage outage, nor in the event of the removal of the memory card during operation, will the hitherto recorded data be lost. The CSM REC09 file system remains consistent and recording can be continued without difficulty.
  • Optimized memory access on CF cards: With the increasing segmentation of the memory card, the write access on the card in the case of data loggers with conventional file systems will increasingly slow down. Not in the case of UniCAN 2.
  • Concomitant recording ofCAN-Trace and of signals in respectively up to eight groups with own trigger and filter conditions.
  • Pre-trigger on CF-Card, enables Gigabyte large Pre-trigger.
  • Remote data transmission over UMTS / GPRS modem simultaneously possible with the data collection.
  • J1939 with the full support of the transport protocol and online triggering of the Diagnostic Trouble Codes entailed in the DM1-message.
  • Easy to use, thereby high-performance configuration software with fleet management.
