J1979 (not a typo)
« on: September 25, 2019, 11:28:21 PM »
Is anyone familiar with J1979, and can you recommend a good document for applying it?  I'm finding references to the standards document and some articles about it, but I haven't found anything that breaks down the messages (11-bit CAN ID I think?).

I have no clue, but I found this :

https://www.sae.org/standards/content/j1979_201702/

Maybe you could buy this standard (do not cost that much) and maybe you will find the required info.

Have a good day!

Sam, we do own several of the J1939 standards, but I don't think I'd recommend them to anyone as learning material for developing an application.  They're more low level than what is needed for a developer using a platform like PLUS+1.  They're great for referencing the details of various PGNs and SPNs once you already know what a PGN and a SPN is.

Thanks!  Indeed the Wikipedia page was the best I'd found so far for practical application stuff I need, and I used that to build a list of transmissions and expected replies that I'll be testing soon.

I'll scope out the other link and see what I can learn.

On a similar note, I find that the Danfoss controllers are very suitable for generic control applications requiring CAN communications, whether J1939, J1979, or ISO-BUS.  I have used them in rail, heavy truck, and agricultural applications where there's not a drop of hydraulic fluid (unless you count transmission fluid).  I hope the communications library expands to include these other protocol layers.

That's really good to know about ISOBUS.  I made a topic a while back in this forum asking about it, and all I got was the official answer that it's not supported.
