New Soft­ware ver­si­ons in Febru­ary 2018

LogoVer­si­on 2.3

A major chan­ge brings the new func­tion
Pro­ject manage­ment.

This enab­les a quick swit­cho­ver bet­ween dif­fe­rent instal­la­ti­ons. The fol­lo­wing data belongs to a pro­ject :

  • Set­tings of the CAN bus, spe­cial baud rates
  • Valua­ti­on set­tings (rating)
  • Pre­de­fi­ned sta­ti­on lists (mea­su­rement of sta­ti­ons)
  • Send lists (pro­to­col moni­tor)
  • Sym­bol files for deco­ding (pro­to­col moni­tor)
  • Mea­su­rement data of all apps
  • Archi­ve files
  • Trace files
  • Screen­shots
  • Back­ground image

The­se data are avail­ab­le for each pro­ject and can be used inde­pendent­ly of each other. If a new pro­ject is crea­ted befo­re a mea­su­rement, the data pre­vious­ly stored on the device is no lon­ger over­writ­ten. A fur­t­her advan­ta­ge is that archi­ve files and screen­shots are now also stored in a fol­der per instal­la­ti­on (to the pro­ject) and not just in chro­no­lo­gi­cal order.

The pro­jects can be crea­ted, dele­ted and named direct­ly in CAN­touch without the need to con­nect to a com­pu­ter.

As a result of this func­tion, the fol­der struc­tu­re on the dri­ve has been chan­ged. In the new fol­der » Pro­jects, a fol­der is crea­ted for each new­ly crea­ted pro­ject. The exis­ting sub­fol­der » Default con­ta­ins the fol­ders and mea­su­rement files, which are crea­ted without using the pro­ject manage­ment. So by the stan­dard, you work in the pro­ject “Default”, even if you have never crea­ted ano­t­her pro­ject.

As set­tings are stored in the respec­tive pro­ject fol­der, ever­y­thing fits the instal­la­ti­on after it has been set once.

Adjust­ments of the eva­lua­ti­on file are retai­ned for each pro­ject.

Send lists of the pro­to­col moni­tor har­mo­ni­zing with the instal­la­ti­on.

The selec­tion of sym­bol files matches the attach­ment.

For easy dif­fe­ren­tia­ti­on of pro­jects, the selec­ted pro­ject name is dis­play­ed on the lock screen and wit­hin the con­trol cen­ter. In addi­ti­on, a sepa­ra­te back­ground image can be set.

Due to the con­ver­si­on to pro­jects, the set­tings menu also had to be chan­ged. We now dis­tin­guish more stron­gly bet­ween device infor­ma­ti­on and set­tings and pro­ject-rela­ted set­tings. The over­all lay­out appears more logi­cal.


The minor modi­fi­ca­ti­on con­cerns the app
Bus sta­tus, ins­te­ad of three the­re are now 4 levels.

Sta­tusThe dis­play refers to the last second.
Bet­ween CAN_​H and CAN_​L a sta­tic vol­ta­ge dif­fe­rence bet­ween 0.5 and 0.9 V is mea­su­red.
A sta­tic vol­ta­ge dif­fe­rence > 0.9 V is mea­su­red bet­ween CAN_​H and CAN_​L.
A sta­tic vol­ta­ge dif­fe­rence < 0.5 V is mea­su­red bet­ween CAN_​H and CAN_​L.
A level chan­ge is detec­ted, but no valid CAN tele­grams can be detec­ted. The baud rate is pro­bab­ly not set cor­rect­ly.
The bus sta­tus lamp only turns green when the tes­ter has detec­ted at least one valid CAN tele­gram on the bus.

The Online Trig­ger app now allows you to crea­te
Mea­su­rement archi­ves, which can be impor­ted into the CBT2 soft­ware as usu­al. For this pur­po­se, it was necessa­ry to mer­ge the mea­su­rement data into a sin­gle file. Plea­se note that an update of the CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2 soft­ware is requi­red to import the data suc­cess­ful­ly.


From this soft­ware ver­si­on onwards, the CAN­touch also dis­plays the
Memo­ry usa­ge of the inter­nal dri­ve. It is dis­play­ed sor­ted once by file type and once sor­ted by pro­ject. In this way, it is pos­si­ble to dele­te the memo­ry more effi­ci­ent­ly if the memo­ry is at risk of beco­m­ing full.


Of the minor chan­ges, the impro­ve­ment of the
Oscil­lo­scope dis­play is worth men­tio­n­ing. The ent­i­re mea­su­ring ran­ge is now dis­play­ed here as in CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2, the restric­tion to a width of 8448 px has been remo­ved. This app­lies to the apps node mea­su­rement and online trig­ger.

Ano­t­her small chan­ge was intro­du­ced on custo­mer request : the
Type of the SAE J1939 sys­tem (SAE J1939 /​ISOBUS /​NMEA 2000) can now be selec­ted and the device dis­plays the cor­re­spon­ding logo in the App node mea­su­rement.

After a data back­up (if requi­red) and the instal­la­ti­on of this update, we recom­mend that you activa­te the new func­tion
Res­to­re fac­to­ry sta­tus once. This dele­tes the files that have beco­me obso­le­te by the pro­ject manage­ment. The mea­su­rement data is now only stored in the pro­jects. You can then res­to­re your set­tings files to the » Pro­jects » Default fol­der or to a new pro­ject.

Ver­si­on 4.7.1.0

The soft­ware installs a new firm­ware V04.11 on the device.

The CAN-Bus Tes­ter 2 also has an impro­ved bus sta­tus dis­play, both for the cor­re­spon­ding LED on the device and for the dis­play in the soft­ware. The descrip­ti­on of this can be found above under the inno­va­tions for CAN­touch.

Ver­si­on 1.25

While the soft­ware its­elf has only seen minor chan­ges sin­ce the last release, we are chan­ging the licen­sing model. From now on you can get the star­ter set for only 75,00€ inclu­ding the matching dong­le and 30 days tri­al time, in which all licen­ses can be tested exten­si­ve­ly. This makes the soft­ware signi­fi­cant­ly che­a­per over­all.

Other chan­ges main­ly affect the SAE-J1939 – Recei­ve modu­le. The deco­der now also under­stands and deco­des the addi­tio­nal messa­ges defi­ned in the ISOBUS and NMEA200 stan­dards.
