Introduction - this product has been obsoleted

Raptor-CAN is not offered as a commercial product at this time.

Trying to monitor raw CAN bus data or debug CAN bus problems without the proper software tools can be time consuming, tedious and labor intensive. Yet many of the software products currently available on the market are either expensive, overly complex or difficult to use.

New Eagle’s Raptor-CAN software breaks from the status quo by offering a simple, low-cost and easy-to-use solution for practically any CAN bus monitoring and debugging needs.

Raptor-CAN can monitor, log or send data to the CAN bus. Raptor-CAN decodes raw CAN bus data using DBC files so end-users only see signals in engineering units within the Raptor-CAN software. Raptor-CAN is even capable of transmitting pre-recorded CAN data back onto the bus. This powerful feature is especially useful for recreating scenarios without having to use the actual hardware that originally sent the messages.

  • Analysis
    • Open a CAN *.dbc file online to see live data
    • Interpret a recorded CAN log file using a *.dbc file for real-world data such as RPM or vehicle speed
    • Use the CAN Logging Tool to filter CAN logs for data mining or streamlined analysis
    • Use the CAN Logging Tool to create a message summary report showing minimum, maximum and average timing characteristics for each message in a log
  • Logging
    • Record a full CAN log of your system on your PC
    • Use the CAN Logging Tool to convert log format from other data logging tools for import into Raptor-CAN
  • Simulation
    • Open a CAN *.dbc file online to select messages to simulate controlling field values using a slider
    • Open a recorded log file for playback to simulate a vehicle or system on the bench
  • PC CAN Gateway
    • Bridge two buses for reverse engineering of CAN systems


PC CAN Gateway

Raptor-CAN offers a gateway function to bridge two CAN buses. Entire CAN frames can be passed through, or you can pass just specific bits and bytes of a message. The gateway function also allows modification of the messages being bridged. This makes Raptor-CAN an excellent tool for reverse engineering CAN networks.
