CAN­BUS­view XL III, CAN Quick Tes­ter C‑QT15 and Device­N­et Ana­ly­zer (BC-200-CAN/DN)

When some­thing is good, it is glad­ly taken. Seve­ral com­pa­nies around the glo­be pla­ced our dia­gno­sis tools in their pro­duct port­fo­lio. While some com­pa­nies like Ixxat, Pro­kor­ment and Phy­tools sell the CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2 and the CAN­touch as they are, other com­pa­nies adorn them­sel­ves with bor­ro­wed plumes.

The CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2 is sold as CAN­BUS­view XL II by the com­pa­ny Indu-Sol - that’s why some of our cus­to­mers asking our sup­port for a CAN-Bus Tes­ter 3. But CAN­BUS­view XL III and CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2 are iden­ti­cal except for the front foil, Indu-Sol only chan­ges the name against their trade name. User manu­al and soft­ware are taken unmodified.

The com­pa­ny Balluff sells the CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2 as a spe­cial ver­si­on as Device­N­et Ana­ly­zer. Sad to say that they don’t put much power into pro­duct care, so the­re is no soft­ware update sin­ce 2011. The device is limi­t­ed to the bus sys­tem Device­N­et and not com­pa­ti­ble with the soft­ware of CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2, which ana­ly­zes all bus sys­tems (inclu­ding DeviceNet).

Also as Sof­ting BC_200-CAN/DN the CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2 was sold. This tes­ter was also for Device­N­et and the­r­e­fo­re main­ly the Ame­ri­can mar­ket. Sof­ting sold the CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2 also as its­elf wit­hout any bran­ding but with dif­fe­rent order num­bers refer­ring to BC-200 depen­ding on licenses.

The com­pa­ny I‑V-G Göh­rin­ger offers CANalarm as CAN Quick Tes­ter C‑QT15 with their own front foil.
