Triggers and Data Logger capabilities

    • Kvaser Memorator can 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
    • Handles up to 20 000 msgs/s in standalone logger mode
    • Transmit messages to the bus network
    • External digital output that can drive a LED or a buzzer
    • < 250 ms boot up time
    • Supports Silent Mode - log bus traffic safely without interfering and "listen-only" mode for bus analysis tools


    • Kvaser Memorator Professional can 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

Memory cards and functions
