CANo­pen pro­to­col moni­tor vs. CANo­pen bus sys­tem

CANo­pen pro­to­col moni­tor

The CANo­pen pro­to­col moni­tor (recei­ve) recei­ves, decodes and shows, which messa­ges are trans­por­ted on the bus. Exten­si­ve fil­ter func­tio­n­a­li­ty makes the search for cer­tain messa­ges easier.

If you not only want to recei­ve but actively send, you need the licen­se of pro­to­col moni­tor CAN (send/​receive) addi­tio­nal­ly.


Bus sys­tem CANo­pen

With a licen­se of bus sys­tem CANo­pen, you make your work easier at phy­si­cal lay­er mea­su­rement.

If you choo­se the bus sys­tem CAN while mea­su­ring in a CANo­pen net­work (for instan­ce becau­se you don’t have a licen­se for bus sys­tem CANo­pen), the sta­ti­on scan lists all messa­ges ID’s that are trans­mit­ted on the bus. May­be it shows a lot of ID’s, which only be sent by a few nodes.
With a licen­se for bus sys­tem CANo­pen (if you choo­se this bus sys­tem in the soft­ware), the sta­ti­on scan sorts not after mes­sa­ge ID but after Node-ID. The­re­fo­re only the nodes that are real­ly pre­sent in the bus (1…127) are shown. It is, the­re­fo­re, easier to keep the over­view.
