Vector’s Bomag MPH 125 stabilizer/recycler offers an extensive electronic system and CAN nodes. Developers mapped the machine’s modular product concept to a modular CAN-based network cluster. CAN 1, as the central Body-CAN bus, is connected to most bus nodes, and its operation is based on the CANopen protocol, which enables the use of standard automation components. The powertrain bus, CAN 2, interconnects the vehicle’s main computer, engine controller, steering, and driving levers. A third CAN 3 data bus may be used, depending on how the MPH 125 is equipped. Bomag implements software tools from Vector such as CANalyzer/CANoe options for J1939 and CANopen. The tools offer various capabilities for testing the overall system and for efficient electronic control unit, module, and integration tests. Diagnostic testing and simulation are also possible.
