Troubleshooting CANbus SAE J1939 connection when no data is showing up.

Don’t forget your terminating resistors! Both ends of the CAN bus should be terminated with 120O resistors. Forgetting the resistors can result in signal reflection which will corrupt the data packet and ultimately result in no data. IMPORTANT NOTE: HMI5070P has built-in termination resistor, so a termination resistor is only required for the opposite end…

What is CANbus?

Originally developed for use as an in-vehicle network in passenger cars, nowadays Controller Area Network (CAN) is used in many other industries. This includes applications in any kind of transportation system (rail vehicle, aircraft, marine, etc.), in industrial machine control systems, in home and building automation (e.g. HVAC, elevators), in mobile machines (construction and agriculture…

What are the benefits of CAN? CANbus?

Integrating CANbus communication offers several advantages for industrial automation industries: Speed: CAN data transfer speeds far outperform traditional analog wiring since multiple messages can be sent simultaneously to all connected devices, sensors or actuators. Flexibility: Because of its single cable, two-wire structure, CANbus offers enhanced installation and maintenance flexibility. CAN-connected systems not only contain significantly…
