Connect and Monitor J1939 Engines

SAE J1939 is a standardized protocol that operates in CAN (Controller Area Network) bus networks. It is widely used in industrial diesel engines designed for the heavy-duty vehicle industry, including on-highway trucks, off-highway equipment, agricultural equipment, construction equipment, and other vehicles. Ordinarily, engine control units (ECUs) are used to control these kinds of devices, and more and more applications are employing PLCs for process automation to monitor the status of J1939-supported devices connected to an ECU.

Moxa’s J1939 Gateway Makes Deployment Easier

During a project’s deployment, system integrators (SIs) must overcome several challenges, ranging from dealing with the complexity of different protocols and interfaces to spending too much time on pre-configuration and troubleshooting. With regard to these challenges, Moxa’s J1939 protocol converter is very easy to use and is equipped with a variety of maintenance functions to monitor the status of all connected CAN devices.

  • Extreme Flexibility

    Moxa provides a model capable of handling multiple combinations of protocol conversions between CAN-J1939 and Modbus RTU/ASCII/ TCP, EtherNet/IP, and PROFINET. It offers SIs extreme flexibility when designing a new project.
  • A Real Time-Saver

    As more data is required for control and analytics, engineers had to repeatedly configure their gateways to retrieve all of their data. Moxa’s MGate 5118 provides an innovative tool that simplifies the pre-configuration process so that it only takes a few minutes.
  • Smoother System Operation

    Built-in diagnostic tools help engineers easily eliminate communication issues during operations. They also enable engineers to determine the root cause of a failure.
