Version 5.02 of IQANdesign, IQANsimulate, IQANrun and IQANscript are now released on check for updates. These are the highlights:
DBC -file import
On the tools menu, there is a new CAN database feature for .DBC file import. After importing a DBC it is easy to automatically generate JFIN/JPIN, JFOUT//JPOUT, GFIN/GPIN and GFOUT/GPOUT channels from the database.
A J1939 library is included in the CAN database menu in IQANdesign. It gives easy access to creating channels with the standardized PGN and SPN numbers and names. Note that timeouts and transmit rates needs to be set manually.
There is now a built-in function for generating outgoing DM1 messages based on channel status. Drag the channels to the DM1 out container and set a unique SPN number for each.
The length of the outgoing message is determined by number of channels with a warning or error status. FMI is set based on the channel status.
New channel type: JTOUT
The J1939 text output channel is used to send text to an external system. It supports multi-packet when text length > 8 bytes.
Support for J1939 address claim
Forces IQAN master modules to claim their J1939 address before starting other J1939 communication. Enabled by a property on the J1939 bus.
Support for J1939 Time/Date
External systems can now set the date and time in a master module using J1939 TDA. Enabled with property on master module.
A Connect button with a drop-down for selecting the communication interface has been added to the IQANrun start page.
The IQANrun multimeter button brings up a free floating window where it is possible to make a new measure group on the fly.
Channels can be added from the existing measure groups, and also the module block diagrams and application view if this is visible.
More IQANdesign features
IQAN expansion bus
The use of IQAN expansions in systems with short cycle times is improved by two small changes. Property 'Sample rate divider' is clarified by changing it into "Polling cycle time", and an estimated CAN bus utilization project check is added for expansion buses.
Property to disable undercurrent detect on Digital out HS+LS added.
Zoom support in page editor
Makes it possible to zoom in and out in the display page editor.
