What is the Best Software to Use with the Komodo CAN Solo Interface to Read Complete Data?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Komodo CAN Solo Interface with Komodo GUI Software to run a CAN module from a Linux host system. I am sending data through the General CAN Mode.  My concern is when reviewing the data log 3 out of 8 bytes of data at the receiving end are masked.

For example, if I intend to send deadbeef55667788, the CAN analyzer detects EF 55 66 77 88 00 00 00 as shown below.

Is there something else I need to do with the software setup? I have chosen Auto-baudrate, which settled down at 500 kHz.

Response from Technical Support:

Thanks for your question!  The Komodo GUI Software is an easy to use application to access the active CAN functions of the Komodo CAN Solo Interface. However, for the results you desire for CAN analysis, we suggest using the Data Center Software instead.

 

How To Use the Data Center Software

After you’ve connected the analyzer to the software, we recommend setting the bitrate of your target system in the Analyzer Device Settings window as shown below. NOTE – the illustration displays using a Komodo DUO CAN Interface.

Once you have set your bitrate, you’re ready to get started.   Click Start Capture to begin a live stream of data from your CAN bus.
