Kvaser Eagle is a powerful dual channel CAN to standard USB high-speed data logger that is capable of running user-developed scripts. As a flexible, versatile, enhanced evolution of the Kvaser Memorator Professional, Kvaser Eagle offers more advanced logging and statistics collection capabilities than most other CAN interface products on the market. Eagle is also capable of collecting signal triggered data and performing periodic information gathering over a much longer period of time, thanks to its high memory capacity and low current consumption.

 

Major Features

  • Supports both 11-bit (CAN 2.0A) and 29-bit (CAN 2.0B) identifiers.
  • CAN messages are time-stamped with 2 microseconds resolution.
  • Two high-speed CAN channels (compliant with ISO 11898-2), 10kbit/s up to 1 Mbit/s
  • Connect Eagle to a PC to configure bit rates, trigger conditions and filters using Kvaser’s CANlib or Kvaser Memorator Tools.
  • Kvaser Eagle's script functionality, allowing users to develop highly customised t-script applications written in the Kvaser t programming language.
  • Encryption of scripts to protect intellectual property.
  • Plug and play installation, and a comprehensive user guide to help make t script development quick and easy.
  • Three built-in microprocessors (MCUs) that ensure real-time CAN bus performance. One MCU is used to handle each CAN channel and another MCU handles the script, ensuring that Eagle can also handle very large and complex scripts.
  • 200MHz processor performance with minimal current consumption.
  • Large on-board RAM buffer for CAN messages and flashing LED light to alert the user to the buffer being overrun.
  • Higher level protocols such as ISO 15765 and J1939 can be implemented in t-script. Working sample code for ISO 15765-2 is already included.
  • Fully compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000® and DeviceNet.

Filters

  • Log continuously, or logging can be triggered by creating advanced triggers based on messages, data signal values, error messages, external trigger's falling or rising edge, and I/O signals.
  • Pre- and post-triggers are available without buffer size restrictions, limited by disk space only.
  • Filter out selectable messages and/or signals to be logged. The identifiers can be picked from a database, or all messages can be logged.
  • Support for pass as well as stop filters.
  • Create a counting pass filter to have a message logged at enumerated occurrence.
  • Handles up to 20,000 msgs/s in standalone logger mode.
  • External digital output that can drive an LED or a buzzer.
  • Supports Silent Mode - Log bus traffic safely without interfering and "listen-only" mode for bus analysis tools.

Memory Cards and Functions

  • Supports SD and SDHC memory card formats.
  • Set up several devices in a daisy chain for larger logging capacity.
  • Configuration Software in the PC
  • Easy to use graphic configuration tool - Memorator Tools.
  • Configuration of the CAN controller, i.e. bit rate and filters.
  • Configuration of the trigger conditions.
  • Configuration of filter for messages to be stored.
  • Configuration upload and download via USB.
  • Using the included Kvaser Dispatcher software, a complete measurement setup can be turned into a self-installing package that is sent to a remote location to carry out a specific logging task.
