CAN FD integration for data loggers
With the CAN FD Satellite Interface, IPETRONIK offers an independent unit with 4 ISO CAN FD inputs for the data logger series ARCOS 1.5, IPElog2, and M-LOG V3.
The CAN FD satellite can be connected to the data logger via Ethernet and is fed with power from the logger. With the satellite, we are able to meet new traffic and signal measurement requirements for vehicles with CAN FD networks. The independent CAN FD inputs offer many advantages, including short cables to the bus network.
To connect the logger to the ARCOS 1.5, it has to be expanded by a feature connector interface that can be inserted with an expansion frame (like other interfaces). With its 15-pole plug, the feature connector offers all data, communication, and power supply interfaces for CAN FD satellites. Therefore the satellite interfaces supports Wake on CAN (WoC) and No Message Lost (NML) functions. With the internal GbETH switch, several satellites can be cascaded, increasing the number of CAN inputs.
