CAN Database

The CAN database is used to identify every packet that is received on the CAN network and passed within the graphical flow chart. Packets are broken into individual variables, and each variable can be assigned a unique conversion formula, operational range, unit, and name. The CANCapture database supports all the standard features one would expect from a CAN database, along with many other great features:

  • The database is integrated into the application, so you can easily add new definitions, jump to existing, add new graphs or variable watches, and manage all variables from one convenient location.
  • Support for all variations of CAN protocols - SAE J1939, CANbus, NMEA-2000, and other proprietary specifications. Includes full J1939 database and natively supports PGN and SPN identifiers.
  • Supports importing of other existing .DBC databases.
  • Assign color codes to each packet to help easily identify each message type in the "Raw Capture" list.
  • Signed, unsigned, IEEE float, IEEE double, and ASCII variable types along with big or little (Motorola or Intel) byte ordering.
  • Includes support for the NMEA-2000 Fast Packets and the J1939 transport protocol, including J1939 multipacket messages, variable length ASCII SPNs, and diagnostic messages and diagnostic trouble codes
  • Integrated "hot-filter" search functionality allows quick and easy access to all variables.
