Free CAN Bus Software: CANvas – Configure, Stream, Convert



CANvas is a powerful, simple and free software tool for use with the CANLoggerX000 series of CAN bus data loggers from http://www.csselectronics.com

In this video we present how you can use the tool to configure your logger, stream real-time data and convert raw CAN bus data into scaled engineering values.

For an overview & download links, check out our official page: http://www.csselectronics.com/screen/page/can-bus-logger-tools

Key features of the tool include:

CONFIGURATION
- Logger ID, data separator, file split limit (e.g. new log every 100 MB)
- Bit rate incl. optional auto-detection and Silent/’Listen Only’ mode
- Customizable RTC and date/timestamp format (CANLogger2000/3000)
- Cyclic Logging: Delete oldest files when SD card is full
- Heartbeat Signal: Receive status message every second from the logger
- Control Signal: Optionally use custom trigger CAN ID to turn logging on/off
- Transmit: Add custom CAN messages to be sent periodically (e.g. for OBD2)
- Filtering: Specify message filters & down-sampling to focus your logging
- NEW: For the CANLogger3000, you can also easily configure the WiFi settings

LIVE STREAMING:
- Advanced and highly customizable message/data filtering
- Plugin DBC support to stream human-readable data (aka engineering values)
- Plugin OBD2 dissector, allowing you to convert all standard parameters
- Plugin ‘Live View’ (trace), showing a fixed view of unique CAN IDs and highlighting all changes to data bytes – powerful for CAN sniffing/hacking
- Intuitive real-time graphical plots of converted data (e.g. OBD2, J1939, …)
- Easily export to multiple formats incl. *.csv, *.c, *.txt and more
- Load a CANLoggerX000 log file to leverage the Wireshark & Plugin features
- Connect to the logger while data logging and leverage all the above

DATA CONVERSION:
- Easily load DBC files for use in conversion (e.g. SAE J1939)
- Built-in support for FMS conversion rules (buses, trucks)
- Load batches of log files & link together based on session IDs
- Add custom conversion rules incl. name, start bit, length, scale, offset etc.
- Optionally down-sample the logged data to e.g. 5 minute interval output
- Add custom columns to the output file
- Customize output timestamp to e.g. be interpreted as date & time in Excel
- NEW: Merge multiple log files together into one output file
- NEW: Convert raw log files into Vector CANalyzer or PEAK formats
- NEW: Add summary statistics to down sampled data (standard dev, min, max)
