THE DATA-LOGGER USING KVASER'S MAGISYNC TECHNOLOGY provides five high-speed CAN channels and a USB interface.

This results according to the provider in simpler and more accurate multichannel data capture. The product is compatible with the higher-layer protocols CANopen, Devicenet, J1939, and NMEA 2000. The CAN interfaces are realized by means of FPGAs, which will support CAN FD.

Application-specific scripts for this device will also be available from Kvaser’s network of technical associates, who all have different domain expertise. As such, this device is designed to appeal to engineers in industries as broad ranging as automotive development, machine control and industrial network connectivity.
