The Monitor tab displays the following information for the most recently received CAN frames:

  • ID—For CAN, the Arbitration ID (standard 11-bit or 29-bit ID) of the CAN frame. Remote frames are denoted with an R. Extended frames (29-bit ID) are denoted with an asterisk (*).
  • Time Stamp—The most recent frame timestamp, formatted as time of day or since the start of measurement.
  • Length—The number of bytes received in the frame.
  • Data—The data bytes contained in the frame.
  • Type—The frame type:
    • Standard (11-bit ID) frames are marked S.
    • Extended (29-bit ID) frames are marked E.
    • Remote frames are marked R.
    • CAN Bus Error frames are marked ERR.
    • ISO CAN FD + BRS frames are marked BRS.
    • ISO CAN FD frames are marked FD.
  • Rate—The frame transmission rate (in Hertz).
  • No of Frames—The number of received frames of this identifier since the start of the measurement.
  • Frame Name (optional)—The data frame's associated name if a database is used and the frame is specified in the database.
  • Comment (optional)—The data frame's associated comment string if a database is used and the frame is specified in the database.

Monitor—J1939

The Monitor tab displays the following information for the most recently received J1939 frames:

  • PGN—The Parameter Group Number of the frame.
  • PS—The PDU Specific value of the frame.
  • SA—The Source Address of the frame.
  • Prio—The Priority value of the frame.
  • Time Stamp—The most recent frame timestamp, formatted as time of day or since the start of measurement.
  • Length—The number of bytes received in the frame.
  • Data—The data bytes contained in the frame. This field displays up to the first 256 data bytes per frame, but all data bytes are written to the log file if logging is enabled.
  • Type—The frame type:
    • Extended (29-bit ID) frames are marked E.
    • Remote frames are marked R.
    • CAN Bus Error frames are marked ERR.
  • Dir—The direction of the frame with respect to the specified CAN interface:
    • Received frames are marked Rx.
    • Transmitted frames are marked Tx.
  • No of Frames—The number of received frames of this identifier since the start of the measurement.
  • Parameter Group Label—The J1939-specified parameter group label for the parameter group number of the frame.

Monitor—FlexRay

The Monitor tab displays the following information for the most recently received FlexRay frames:

  • Slot ID—For FlexRay, the slot identifier in which the frame has been transmitted.
  • Time Stamp—The most recent frame timestamp, formatted as time of day or since the start of measurement.
  • Length—Number of bytes received in the frame.
  • Data—Data bytes contained in the frame.
  • Type—The frame type:
    • Standard frames are marked Data.
    • Null frames are marked Null.
  • Cycle Number—Number of the last cycle where the frame has been transmitted.
  • No of Frames—The number of received frames of this identifier since the start of the measurement.
  • Frame Name (optional)—The data frame's associated name if a database is used and the frame is specified in the database.
  • Comment (optional)—The data frame's associated comment string if a database is used and the frame is specified in the database.

Monitor—LIN

The Monitor tab displays the following information for the most recently received LIN frames:

  • ID—For LIN, the identifier is a number from 0 to 63. This number identifies the content of the data contained within payload.
  • Time Stamp—The most recent frame timestamp, formatted as time of day or since the start of measurement.
  • Length—The number of bytes received in the frame.
  • Data—The data bytes contained in the frame.
  • Checksum—The received checksum for the frame. This column is displayed only if Checksum is enabled in LIN Interface and Database Settings.
  • Type—The frame type:
    • Standard frames are marked S.
    • LIN Bus Error frames are marked ERR.
    • LIN No Response frames are marked NR.
  • Rate—The frame transmission rate (in Hertz).
  • No of Frames—The number of received frames of this identifier since the start of the measurement.
  • Frame Name (optional)—The data frame's associated name if a database is used and the frame is specified in the database.
  • Comment (optional)—The data frame's associated comment string if a database is used and the frame is specified in the database.
