Sean Zhang, a field application engineer for Caterpillar Oil and Gas, used a Kvaser Memorator Pro 2xHS v2 dual-channel CAN interface and data-logger to record CAN data in a demonstration.
As the engine on which Caterpillar’s new product link remote monitoring solution couldn’t be started up during the show, the data-logger was used to simulate the running engine. Derek Sum, Kvaser’s (Sweden) support engineer, helped by writing t-programs for the live demonstration. By the way, both companies are members of CAN in Automation.
The data-logger allows users to monitor and log data from two CAN or CAN FD channels using one device. Zhang also uses interfaces and data-loggers of the Swedish company in his daily fieldwork: “Kvaser has been one important and essential tool in my daily work. The Memorator lets me record from CAN easily and helps to catch valuable data or find problems. The reason we chose Kvaser is simple: it is convenient to use and recording is complete, without any missing data. The data can also be output or converted to many types of analysis tool. Thanks again Derek for help on the programming!”
