I've got a prospective customer with a machine that has ISOBus on it.  I have never yet dealt with ISOBus.  After some research it looks to me like it runs on a CAN bus operating at 250k, so that's nice.  I see that the Virtual Terminal functionality is a big deal for displays, but I don't know that I care about that. 

I'm wondering if I can just connect to the bus and read process data from some messages without too much fuss.  Has anyone done this with a PLUS1?  Is it just a CAN ID and up to 8 bytes of data like any other protocol?

Hi Tom!

Sent you a response on your email to PLUS+1 Helpdesk.

For all of you others;

We currently don't have any controller supporting ISOBUS. ISOBUS is a communication protocol for the agriculture industry based on the SAE J1939 protocol (which includes CANbus). Currently I'm not aware of any customers using our controllers for this becuase it's not that simple to implement this other communication protocol.

Best regards
