D3 Library and SDK

At the heart of the flexibility of C_wiz is the D3 (data device driver) architecture.

What is a D3

Current D3 Library

All D3s listed below are included with the Evaluation Edition Download.

As D3s are not particularly hard to write, our intention is to provide any D3s developed in the future by ForTotalRecall free of charge. This statement of intent obviously can not cover any D3s written by third parties.

All D3s have inbuilt diagnostics tools, a 60 second trace capability and fully utilize the C_wiz Test Drive facility to provide context sensitive online documentation.

Contact Us if you think we don't have your requirement covered.

SAE J1587

The SAE J1587 D3 supplies data to C_wiz from one or more SAE J1587 transmitters on an SAE J1708 network.

An SAE J1587 transmitter is a microprocessor based module that takes some form of (typically analog) data and communicates the characteristics (values, status etc) of this data over an SAE J1708 network using the SAE J1587 message standard.

Examples of SAE J1587 transmitters include:

o The VDO EDB /GBI modules which can accept a frequency (tachometer) input and several resistive inputs (temperature, pressure etc).

o The computerized engine control modules on the Cummins QSM11 engine range.

SAE J1587 is a standard developed by the (US) Society of Automotive Engineers.

SAE J1708 is a standard developed by the (US) Society of Automotive Engineers. In essence SAE J1708 is a 9600 baud RS485 standard.

The SAE J1587 D3 uses an SAE J1708 to RS232 converter manufactured by the B & B Electronics Manufacturing Company of Ottawa, Illinois, USA.
