Plugins to Extend Functionality

CANinterpreter functionality is optionally extended with the use of available PlugIns, which can also be developed and provided to address customer specific requirements. Examples of use include utilization as service tool or as diagnostic tool for devices or plants.


QtScript/JavaScript based scripting, extended with CAN and CANopen specific commands. By means of the plugIn it is possible to create user interfaces for example for test- or control applications. They are designed with a free UI designer.

CANopen Interpretation

Interprets all CAN messages according to the CANopen specification. For example, instead of “40 17 10 00” the content is interpreted as a SDO read access to the Heartbeat producer object(0x1017). The traffic can be filtered by CANopen service and node-ID and also the contains of PDOs can be displayed according to their mapping.
