Controlling & Monitoring a Test Cell Application

Pyramid Solutions’ BridgeWay Ethernet and Modbus RTU to J1939 Gateways are powerful and flexible products that enable connectivity from Automation Control Systems to Engine and other Vehicle and Equipment Control Systems that use SAE J1939 (over CAN) as the control network.

Application:Vehicle and Vehicle Component Test Cells that utilize PLCs and other Controllers to monitor and control the test process.

Problem:How to enable a PLC or other controller to have the direct ability to monitor, control and provide message simulation over a J1939 network in a test cell scenario.

Solution: The BridgeWay J1939 Gateways allow the Test Cell Automation Controller to receive and send messages on the SAE J1939 network, enabling the controller to monitor messages from the vehicle and to send scheduled or on demand messages to control the vehicle during the test.  This includes sending simulated vehicle messages and monitoring diagnostic trouble codes.
