The young engineers of the Vattenfall Solar Team of Delft University in the Netherlands will use the CANtouch at the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2019 to optimally design the CAN bus of their solar racer “Nuna X”. The measuring device will also be at hand on site in the Australian outback should problems arise. We keep our fingers crossed for a successful defence of the world champion title !

The Zimmer Maschinenbau GmbH from Klagenfurt in Austria is using our CANalarm for setting up their digital screen printing and coating machines. Simply by monitoring of bus traffic load and counting eventually occurring error frames, it is possible to know if the bus runs as expected. So an increase of operational reliability is possible.
At Palfinger in the Austrian city of Lengau, we held a two-day CAN basic training course discussing the use of our diagnostic equipment in the final inspection and worldwide service. Basic problems with the construction of a bus system were discussed intensively with employees from the development and the service. Measurements were taken and evaluated at various plants.
The manufacturer of cranes has more than 30 CAN-Bus Tester 2 and some CANtouch in his worldwide service and development. At a technical training in the parent plant in Zweibrücken in November 2016, we could deepen basic knowledge and introduce the measurement devices on a new level.
Also, our other customers benefit from this training and the suggestions of the training participants. Some of the ideas are realized already.
“12 years ago I worked with the first version of the CAN-Bus Tester and compared to that, the CANtouch is, of course, a very positive advancement. Especially for service calls at systems, a handy mobile device is advantageous. I liked the possibility to make a screenshot for documentation because this is feasible.”
