Data Logger

Powerful and easy to configure logging solution for
CAN (FD) and LIN systems



With CANnector Log HMS provides an easy to use data logger with a large range of functions. It allows logging of CAN (FD) and LIN data to USB mass storage devices for analysis on PC – enabling predictive maintenance, surveillance of machines as well as error analysis.

CANnector Log

CANnector Log is a preconfigured version of the CANnector S device, enabling users to easily log CAN data without time consuming configuration. The four provided basic CAN logging configurations initialize all 6 CAN interfaces with 125 kbit/s, 250 kbit/s, 500 kbit/s, or 1000 kbit/s and log all received data in csv format. For logging a 16 GB USB memory stick is included. Data logging is executed autarkic on the device, a PC is only needed for a user specific  configuration or visualization of live data.

Since CANnector Log is based on the common CANnector S variant, the device functionality can easily be adapted or enhanced by using the ACT tool – providing extended logging functionality or even bridge or range extender functionality.

Configuration and Operation

CANnector Log is preconfigured and can be used directly without further configuration. However, for customers which require specific functionality – e.g. with message filtering or triggers – HMS provides easy to use tools to use the logger “your” way.


Dashboard
With the dashboard, that is accessible with a standard web browser via Ethernet, USB or WLAN (WiFi), the CANnector Log and the connected bus systems can be monitored, the different basic configurations can be selected, started and stopped on the device, log files can be uploaded to the PC, and live data can be visualized.

Loggerfiles


ACT Tool
ACT is Windows based and allows the easy creation of configurations with or without bus description files via drag and drop. The ACT tool provides further configuration possibilities (e.g. changing triggers and filters).

LoggerTrigger


IxAdmin
IxAdmin is included in the ACT tool. With IxAdmin the different basic configurations can be selected, started, stopped and downloaded to the device. Changing baud rate settings and uploading log files to the PC is also possible.
