Testing and Debugging
Even though CAN-bus is a robust fieldbus-technology, errors and misbehaving communication can occur. TKE can offer customers CAN traffic analyzing and debugging services. This service is based on CAN physical layer testing or Application level testing, where we can help customers with various ways.
Physical layer testing
The physical layer testing can be done at customers site, in-house at TKE or at customers end-customer site. When testing is done, a comprehensive report is generated which always presents also the suggestion for correction. The report layout can also be fitted suiting the customers own report layout in mind.
Physical level testing can be used to test either part of the CAN-network, the entire network/system or just a single node can be analyzed throughout into nodes HW/Electronics.
With physical level testing you can find following errors:
- Voltage peaks
- Grounding errors
CANopen application layer testing
We can help you to test the CANopen functionality of your CANopen device/node or your CANopen network. We help you to define the test specification, develop test cases (either manual or automatic), implement the actual test and generate a test report which includes the test result and suggestions for correction. Part of our testing services are:
- Un-official CiA 301 conformance testing
- CiA 401 device profile for generic I/O module testing
- CiA 410 device profile for inclinometer testing
- Layer setting service (LSS) functionality testing
- CANopen performance testing
