New CAN and LIN hardware and Software

Announcing the availability some new products available from Computer Solutions

PCAN Explorer


The big brother of our PCANview package, which is included with every PCAN interface, the PCAN-Explorer program provides a really powerful Windows program for investigating what is happening on the CAN bus and also for controlling and interacting with CAN systems. It can log data to disk for later review, display and decode messages and their data fields using easily understood English and fixed or floating numbers (rather than HEX). Up to 4 messages can be logged on a strip chart type display to show visually how they change with time . There is support for a large number of transmit messages, an extensive macro language and VB scripts are also included. A visual panel option includes meters, strip charts, sliders and buttons all of which can be linked to CAN messages or macros to provide a powerful user interface

CAN open Magic


For those using CANopen ( a protocol based on CAN that allows units from different manufacturers to easily interoperate ) we have the PCAN open Magic package which provides similar facilities to the PCAN-Explorer but using standard CANopen terminology. Also the built in CANopen Network Controls provide CANopen specific commands such as identifying all the nodes on the net.

LIN to CAN Gateway and interface


This module links LIN to CAN or LIN to Serial allowing a PC with a CAN interface to control a LIN network. With the low cost of PC-CAN units and the powerful CAN analysis software available ( PCAN-Explorer) it makes a reasonable priced PC-LIN interface.
