Trying to monitor raw CAN bus data or debug CAN bus problems without the proper software tools can be 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 & 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 to 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 min/max & 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 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.

License Options

Customers can choose to purchase either a node-locked or dongle-based version of the Raptor-CAN software. A dongle is a small USB device that contains the software license. The advantage of a USB dongle is that the software license can easily be passed from one computer to another. A node-locked license, on the other hand, lives on the computer itself and eliminates the need for any external licensing hardware. Node-locked licenses cannot be lost or come lost, which can be problematic for USB license dongles. While node-locked licenses can be transferred from one computer to another, the process is not as simple and fast as removing a USB dongle from one computer and plugging it in to another computer.

Software Updates

Customers have access to the latest software releases for a period of one year after their purchase. Each software release adds new features and address bug fixes.
