IXXAT - CANnector

CANnector is a DIN rail mountable platform with many different communication interfaces. It is ideal for applications in which several bus systems are to be merged into a single device with its own processing power – e.g. for logging or gateway applications.

All applications run on the device, a PC is only needed for configuration or stimulation/visualization of data, as the actual intelligence – for e.g. the transport protocols – is outsourced to the embedded platform.

HMS provides with  Ixxat ACT (Advanced Configuration Tool) an easy to use Windows-based tool enabling customers to configure the device via drag-&-drop. Most use-cases can be solved by using ACT Freeware (free of charge).


Application examples – How PC interfaces are used

Mobile USB-to-CAN interface for easy CAN (FD) bus access enabling configuration, service and analysis

Access for configuration and analysis

Powerful CAN (FD) plug-in boards enable connection of test/simulation system to automotive bus systems or devices

Wireless connection to automotive bus systems for flexible analysis, configuration and test

Software support for the Ixxat PC interfaces

Passthru J2534

Optionally, the Ixxat PC interfaces do support the PassThru (SAE J2534) API, enabling easy connection to various software testing applications being used in the after sales support of passenger vehicles.  


Optionally, the Ixxat PC interfaces do support the D-PDU-API (ISO 22900-2) under Windows and Linux enabling usage with various third party applications supporting this standard. 

Analysis tools - canAnalyser Mini and CanEasy

Besides the canAnalyser Mini, which is part or the VCI driver package (free of charge), the interfaces are also supported by the powerful analysis/simulation solution CanEasy.
