PCAN-View (Free CAN Monitor)



Windows® Software for Displaying CAN Messages

The software PCAN-View for Windows® is a simple CAN monitor for viewing, sending, and recording CAN data traffic. Messages can be sent manually and periodically at a user-determined bit rate of up to 1 Mbit/s. Bus system errors and memory overflows in the CAN hardware being controlled are displayed during the process. The trace function can be used to record and save CAN data traffic.

PCAN-View is supplied with every PCAN PC hardware product and enables a fast and simple initial hardware operation. All available PEAK CAN interfaces are listed in the connection dialog. After selecting the hardware and the bit rate, the user can access all the software functions, hardware-specific settings, and information.
Beginning with version 4, PCAN-View supports the new CAN FD standard (CAN with Flexible Data rate) which is primarily characterized by higher bandwidth for data transfer.
