LinX Manager Fieldbus Access at a glance

LinX Manager Fieldbus Access is a plugin written for Qt Creator. The plugin allows the user access data available on CAN buses according to J1939 or CANopen protocols from a QML or Widget based Qt application. With the help of LinX Manager Data Engine it updates projects with necessary code and classes to communicate with Fieldbus Access via Data Engine.

Signals can then be visualized directly in a QML or Widget application thanks to generated code or processed further in the backend.

Aside from auto generating the communication layers it also generates the configuration file for the Fieldbus Access runtime, which takes care of the communication with the CAN-buses.

Key features

  • Add, remove and configure CAN buses, either J1939 or CANopen. ​* Manage (add, change, delete) J1939 or CANopen signals.

  • Create configuration files for Fieldbus Access runtime.

  • Generate files and source code to communicate with Data Engine and Fieldbus Access.

  • Creates Data Engine signals for error reporting from the bus to the application.

  • Set default values of signals.
