Data Logging Solutions


Easy to configure and yet powerful logging solutions for all automotive bus systems.

Based on the CANnector and FRC-Series Ixxat offers powerful data logging solutions for parallel logging of CAN, CAN FD, LIN and FlexRay data – both as raw data and signal based data (DBC, Fibex, ARXML, LDF,...). For easy and intuitive configuration via drag & drop the Advanced Configuration Tool (ACT) is included as freeware version.  

Online data visualization and control is possible without the need for a special software – just connect your smartphone, tablet or PC via the normal internet browser. If needed, the solution can be extend by your own C user code or connected to the cloud for remote management and automated data storage.
