Handheld diagnostic device for the physical and logical analysis of CAN bus systems

CANtouch® is a battery-operated handheld diagnostic device for the physical and logical analysis of CAN, CANopen, DeviceNet or SAE J1939 systems.

Its state-of-the-art operation via touch screen provides intuitive and efficient handling similar to the operation of smart-phones. As a further development of the CAN-Bus-Tester 2, it possesses not only its functionality, but, in addition, provides new measuring functions. A simplified evaluation method based on a combination of traffic lights and smilies will assist you in quick assessment of the measurement results. Thanks to the integrated update option, you are already prepared for future extensions today. New functions can be enabled by purchasing additional licenses at any time.

Features and benefits

  • Supported protocols: CAN, CANopen, DeviceNet, SAE J1939
