LINWorks V2 Software
The Baby-LIN-RM-II includes the easy-to-use LINWorks V2 software suite.
Based on LDF or DBC files configurations can be set up within minutes. Each configuration can define which nodes from the bus will be simulated by the Baby-LIN-RM-II (restbus simulation) or how a change of state at the digital inputs will change bus signals or trigger a macro. Via the digital inputs PWM signals can be read, scaled and mapped to bus signals.
Signal values can be read can be read and written in real-time while other operations are in progress. This can be done via a Simple Menu found in the LINWorks suite or by a custom product or even via the API functions of a supplied DLL.
Also, the module's digital outputs can be controlled by the values of the bus signals. For instance; an output can be set, if a signal is equal to, not equal to, greater or less than a reference value. It also can be tested, if a certain signal value is within a given range or not.
LIN Bus Interface
The implemented LIN driver supports bus voltages up to 36 volts and can be used to up to 200 Kbit/s. These way even nodes that operate outside the standard limits of the LIN specifications can be controlled with the Baby-LIN-RM-II.
CAN Bus Interface
One CAN interface is designed as a high-speed interface, conforming to ISO-11898 with a SN65HVD251 driver while the other interface utilises a fault-tolerant low-speed physical layer conforming to ISO-11519 with a TJA1054 transceiver.
The configuration designed on a computer can be transferred to and stored on the device, allowing you to use the controller as a standalone device, without any computer.
The Baby-LIN-RMII makes is easy to add LIN or CAN bus communication capabilities to PLC-based test equipment such as durability test facilities, validation tests etc. The Baby-LIN-RM-II is equipped with a powerful 32-bit microcontroller that handles all time-critical operations such as message formatting and the decoding of the bus protocol.
