Access Vehicles On-site using a Device
Everything resides on the CANect® module to make your life easier
Our CANect® modules allow you to directly connect via Wifi or Ethernet using smart phones, tablets, and PCs without having to download a single piece of software to your device. Users can program their mobile devices to interact with equipment for a variety of functions:
- Vehicle health dashboards with rich graphical user interface (GUI)
- Logging and exporting diagnostics and historical data
- Interactive troubleshooting control system issues
- Remotely controling equipment functions such as lighting, HVAC, door locks, etc.
- View and download service videos and equipment manuals
- Wireless over-the-air programming and configuration
Interact with your vehicle control system wirelessly
All CANect modules come with our standard View® application pre-installed and will auto-sync to the data insights on your existing module to monitor and collect data.
Standard application inclusions:
- Live data (lists and graphs)
- Log files (vehicle and module)
- CAN sniffer
- Documentation and configuration
CANect View Home Screen
Mobile first responsive interface
Rich and Responsive Graphics
Replicate graphics and data readings of an in-cab display, then use a mobile device to view the information while in proximity of the vehicle or offsite. With the virtual dashboard feature, your mobile device can now become your in-cab display by mounting it to the dashboard for use as a gauge cluster. View is ideal for mobile troubleshooting.
Guided Work Flow
Ensure Proper Equipment Service and Operational Safety
Many on-highway vehicle applications require a pre-operational check process. Our pre-flight check list function permits operators to physically carry the checklist with them and sign-off on each task while visually inspecting the vehicle. The checklist can then automatically be generated into a digital report. The View application is also capable of providing operational interlocks if the vehicle hasn’t been inspected and signed-off on.
Peripheral Equipment Controls
Control Non-Critical or Safety Related Functions
Work lights, door locks, HVAC systems and engine starters are examples of the comfort features that can be remotely controlled from a personal device using the View app. Your mobile device can now act as a key-FOB!
Ease of Ownership
Capture, Track and Present your Maintenance Schedule & Lifecycle Routines
In addition, present active (DM1) and historic (DM2) powertrain fault codes (FMI/SPN). Our CANect Composer product provides a quick and easy method of capturing fault codes and presenting them to the user interface.
Store Digital Media and Documents
Conveniently Host Files for On and Offline Access
Owner’s manuals, service literature, and maintenance information can be stored directly on the CANect module such as pdf documents and embedded mp4 videos. Files can securely be stored and managed by operators and service personnel.
Simplify the Complexities of Full Vehicle Service
Similar to advanced display applications, View allows users to monitor advanced graphical representations of vehicles using dynamic illustrations with actionable items, service notifications, and even usage metrics.
Leave your wires and cables at home. CANect® can do it all.
Securely and reliably program your vehicle without a wired connection. A single packet can reprogram CANLink® devices. This can be achieved from a mobile phone, tablet, or PC and allows you to update a single module, an entire system or even graphics for the display (via high-speed Ethernet).
Tighten Up Your Tolerances with eWrench®
Use the power of View to calibrate equipment functionality during the manufacturing process or during incremental service intervals. The View application can also be secured to only allow certain personnel access.
Some of the most difficult issues to diagnose are those that are transient. This often requires you to utilize real-time data to see the issue as they occur. View can report data values quickly. In most cases, faster than dashboard gauges and a variety of HMI.
Capturing transient events and screen shots of those events are critical to quickly resolving in-field issues.
Plotting single or multiple data values over time provides the ability to track and monitor performance or detect transient vehicle behaviors such as hydraulic surges or erroneous function movements. Historical data allows service technicians to fine-tune maintenance schedules to actual vehicle needs.
On-Board Sensor Utilities
CANect devices have GPS and accelerometers onboard. The data from these devices can be utilized in the customer experience to provide guidance, tracking, vehicle attitude, and event tracking. These sensors make the CANect product capabilities a complete IoT solution for the mobile equipment market.
CANect® Application Tools
We have designed a set of proprietary development tools and processes that expedite the application development process for CANect® modules. These tools include utilities such as CAN protocol parsers that convert CAN data to consumable APIs and advance interface protocols.
CANect® can interact with any CAN-based control system
Our Vehicle Parameter Control Application (VPCA) is completely agnostic to standard and proprietary CAN protocols. Likewise, CANect® offers pre-built module software tools that can be easily manipulated to conform to any application.
The benefits of developing application for CANect modules include:
- Interface with any CAN device or system using any CAN protocol
- Develop rich graphical user experiences without having to deal with different device stores
- CANect module applications use HTML5 and provide complete module agnostics
