COMfalcon - Wireless Data Transmission
COMfalcon is a powerful CAN-diagnostic interface with wireless data transmission via WLAN/LAN and various equipment options. Use it for monitoring, flashing or analyzing CAN-networks and handling layer 7-protocols like CANopen or SAE J1939. It is a very flexible and easy to use tool for the detection of CAN data and monitoring of entire networks.
There is a multithreaded software interface (API) available that we attach to the hardware for free. There are also several tools from Sontheim available:
- CANexplorer 4: the modular and intuitive fieldbus diagnostic software
- MDT: our comprehensive vehicle diagnostic software
- CANopen Master Software and Visual CANopen: Easy handling of parameters, configurations, control and operation of CAN networks
Variety of interfaces for maximum of flexibility
COMfalcon™ has up to 4x galvanically isolated ISO 11898 CAN channels, the baud rate is from 50Kbit to 1Mbit freely configurable. Moreover, 1x RS232 and 1x serial multiplex interface (software side are adjustable RS232 / K- / L- Line / RS485 / RS422) is implemented. COMfalcon™ enables a wireless transmission and high data throughput over WLAN/LAN according to IEEE 802.11g standard.
Clear vision even in harsh environments
Thanks to the robust aluminum housing operations in harsh environments are no problem. 9x LEDs and a 14 -segment display are showing the current status of the interface.
Error Frame Detection
This feature allows surveillance and monitoring of a CAN network. The COMfalcon™ possesses an own logic for detecting error frames and counting them up in a specific internal memory area. That is used for finding intermittent errors like falsified messages of a CAN participant.
ID-based level measurement - resistance measurement / current measurement
This feature allows to read the CAN level even IO-related and to measure active and passive termination resistors, for example for various diagnostics on a vehicle or a machine. This is especially important if the network may lose data caused for example by short circuits.
