MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Div. develops a portable test kit for the CAN protocol versions of its off-highway M-Series linear position sensors to assist cylinder manufacturers and equipment OEMs in the off-highway market to verify functionality of the sensors after they are installed.
- Test kit includes: easy-to-use GUI (Graphical User Interface) and an AC-to-DC converter that provides power directly to the sensor, isolating the sensor from the rest of the vehicle
- CAN Test Interface can be quickly attached to the sensor under test by connecting one of two cable assemblies with the CAN to a USB module connected to a computer running the M-Series CAN Test Interface
- Reports the functionality of the sensor and is able to report error-checking and error bytes from the sensor itself
- Software allows customers to change the node ID or baud rate of a sensor directly through the CAN lines
