Logging or Recording
Instantly start or stop logging messages or recording signals conveniently by double-clicking on tabs that appear at the bottom of the CANLab application. Triggers can also be defined to control recorders and loggers.
Playback of previously recorded CAN traffic is critical to network diagnostics. Simulate non-existent nodes or transmit real world data to test modules for validation using CANLab’s Replay feature.
Effectively monitor bus traffic at message or signal levels in fixed or scrolling modes with CANLab’s Trace window screen. When in fixed mode, decoded signal values can be expanded for ease of visibility. A variety of message filtering and highlighting capabilities allow further refining of the message display to aid in analysis.
Select from pre-defined messages or custom defined messages to send on the bus. These may be sent individually or through grouped messages to define a sequence of messages. Customizable trigger events can be used to initiate transmitting the messages. This enables unlocking gateways, simulating controllers or debugging protocols for troubleshooting and validation using CANLab.
CANLab features dials and gauges for viewing and analyzing signals to significantly improve the data analysis process. A strip chart recorder provides recorded or ‘live’ graphical viewing of signals and statistics simultaneously. Signal values can be time aligned to existing recorded data for quick real-time data analysis all on the same screen (window).
Select from common CAN, CAN FD and LIN interfaces on the market. Also, import and export database and log files of various formats.
Fully customize the view of the data in CANLab. Display data items using selectable columns that can include raw and converted values, absolute or relative message timestamps, comprehensive highlighting and trend arrows. For example, highlight messages or message groups by changing the color, font type or font size of a message in the trace window. Select highlighting features based on message IDs or conditions, such as value ranges or message properties like transmitted messages or extended identifiers.
CANLab’s powerful Calculated Channel feature allows creation of additional signals without writing a script. For example, take the vehicle speed signal off the bus and calculate Acceleration and Distance. While CANLab provides a vast array of built-in math functions, the functionality can be extend by referencing a DLL that contains the user’s functions. All of these tools are available to all CANLab users, making analyzing data as simple and powerful as possible.
