Professional Windows Software to Communicate with CAN and CAN FD Busses
The PCAN-Explorer 6 is a versatile, professional program for working with CAN and CAN FD networks. The user is not just limited to the observation of the CAN traffic. Manual or periodic transmission of messages or entire transmission lists allows him a direct influence, for example, for control purposes or simulations.
The PCAN-Explorer 6 can connect to several CAN and CAN FD busses at the same time. Unlike previous versions, the hardware type of used CAN adapters is no longer a limiting factor.
A central point in the use of the program is the symbolic representation of the CAN messages and their payload. With the help of symbol files, the hexadecimal information is transformed into a readable and vivid format.
Since version 6, the trace function, in addition to recording the data traffic, allows also the playback of existing traces. The recordings and incoming CAN messages can be filtered using various criteria.
Special requirements, as well as the automation of complex processes can be implemented using macros. The sophisticated implementation of VBScript accesses the extensive object model of the PCAN-Explorer 6.
Furthermore, the functionality of the PCAN-Explorer can be extended by add-ins. PEAK-System offers add-ins that provide even better opportunities to analyze and influence data. The Plotter produces a graphical representation of the signals‘ time course by live recording or on the basis of traces. The Instruments Panel is used for an own arrangement of various displays, controls, and switches. Further add-ins enable the import of third-party configurations based on the CANdb format and add the support for the J1939 protocol.
