CAN/LIN Instrument

The CAN/LIN Communications Module (CAN/LIN-5/5) is an intelligent instrument which uses its own on-board processor to send/receive/compare Controller Area Network (CAN) and Local Interconnect Network (LIN) messages. This approach reduces software load on the external computer.



  • CAN profiles consist of up to 500 message clusters consisting of transmit messages, expected receive messages, and qualification parameters

  • Failures are defined as received messages that do not meet qualification parameters. They are detected by the CAN/LIN-5/5 and notification is sent to the host PC

  • CAN supports up to 5 repetitive (keep alive) messages

  • CAN also has a manual mode which allows single messages to be sent. A follow up command allows the received message to be obtained. All channels can be selected simultaneously or individually for manual message transmission.

  • Onboard system monitor keeps track of instrument temperature and voltages

  • Profile parameters can be created off-site by included software.

  • All 5 CAN channels and all 5 LIN channels can operate simultaneously

  • Ethernet Interface and Built-In Web Server
