30-01-2019 | PEAK-System | Test & Measurement

PEAK-System has published the handheld device PCAN-MiniDiag FD for the basic diagnosis and fast checking of CAN and CAN FD buses. The battery-powered device has functions which show, for example, bus load, the termination, message and error counters as well as the levels at the CAN connection. Users can now access any CAN network in a matter of seconds with the innovative transmission rate detection. More specifically, bit timing measurements are used to determine the nominal bit rate for CAN and the data bit rate for CAN FD.

The device can be operated easily with one hand due to its compact size and fits into any normal trouser or jacket pocket. The device is ideal for service technicians and developers who need to quickly access unknown CAN networks in vehicles, machines, or industrial facilities and perform simple diagnostics. The device has a D-Sub connector, a membrane keyboard with four keys, an OLED display, and housing with increased IP42 ingress protection.
