A custom-made  oscilloscope for CAN buses allows the intuitive examination of individual CAN frames. By saving data and images, additional evaluations can be carried out subsequently.

Compared to the previous version, the manufacturer has improved the size and resolution of the display as well as the device handling. In addition to the rotary button, four configurable hotkeys provide quick access to various functions. With USB-C and Micro-HDMI the connectivity techniques were brought to the state-of-the-art. The Micro-HDMI interface is used to connect the instrument to an external  monitor or beamer – a feature that makes the device ideal for presentations and training sessions. The PCAN-Diag FD has internal rechargeable batteries and can be recharged with the power supply or the optional charging station with quick-charge function.

The device can be preconfigured for different CAN busses and allows a well-founded analysis in small and extensive areas. With the PCAN-Diag FD, engineers and service technicians in the areas of vehicle, aircraft, machine, and plant construction or automation have a mobile alternative to a computer with a CAN interface.
