Thermocouple FD Configuration

Windows Configuration Software for the MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD

Thermocouple FD Configuration


Data processing, message transmission, and LED indication of the measuring unit MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD are set up with the free Windows software Thermocouple FD Configuration. The configuration created on the computer is transferred via the CAN bus to the device which then runs as an independent CAN node. Multiple devices can be configured independently on a CAN bus.


  • Creating and saving configurations for the measuring unit MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD
  • Configuration of measurement data transmission with CAN or CAN FD
  • Configuration of the eight measuring channels and the four measuring values of the reference temperature sensors
  • Assignment of the CAN IDs and cycle times for the outgoing CAN messages. The measurement data is transmitted with three messages when using CAN 2.0 and with one message when using CAN FD
  • Definition of data type and format for each measuring channel (signed or unsigned / Intel or Motorola format)
  • Defining the processing of each measuring channel with a scale and offset
  • Configuration of the blinking behavior of the measuring channel LEDs
  • Export of CAN message and data configuration as a Symbol or CANdb file
  • Transmission of configuration data via CAN (PEAK CAN interface required)
  • Selective configuration of several devices in a CAN network based on the device ID

System requirements

  • Windows 11, 10, 8.1 (32/64-Bit)
  • At least 2 GB RAM and 1.5 GHz CPU
  • For CAN bus connection: PC CAN interface from PEAK-System
  • CAN cabling between the CAN interface and the measuring unit with proper termination (120 Ohm on each end of the CAN bus)
