Integrated within Hercules is a full-featured diagnostic handler for setup, control, and interpretation of in-vehicle diagnostics frames in accordance with ISO 15765, J1939, and GMW3110 GMLAN.

Supported Protocols: CAN (canbus), GMLAN, ISO11898 (CAN), ISO15765, J1850 GM (Class 2), J1850 Ford (SCP), J1850 DCX, J1939, J1979, J2284, J2411 (GM SW), LIN and SWCAN. Includes full diagnostic services for ISO 15765, J1979, and GMLAN.

Common Applications
    Application Description
    Hercules provides database driven interfaces for monitoring network frame and signal data from multiple networks simultaneously based on a common time stamp. Signal data may be displayed in raw data hex format, engineering units, encoded values, and graphical displays. The software provides advanced filtering and triggering for customizable control of measurement, data logging, and display of data. Hercules simulation features are database driven and allow user defined control of data transmission requirements through a transmit frame table and scheduler. Hercules includes a built-in program block editor and compiler that allows users familiar with C programming the capabilities of creating customized applications that may be downloaded and executed directly on the hardware. Hercules' integrated full-featured diagnostics handler allows setup, control, and interpretation of diagnostic frames in accordance with ISO 15765, J1939, and GMW 3110 (version 1.5).
