Note: The Logena Octolink system is still in development. Some features might be changed or new ones added.
ComprehensivenessLogena Octolink is an comprehensive web-based vehicle data system containing several subsystems.
It includes the following components:
- A very versatile, easy to use hardware data link unit.
- An extensive online management involving a web shop, MyOctolink user corner, data servers, user managements, feature selection, converters and much more.
- Online support including Remote assistance.
- Easy online/offline synchronization.
- Customer data exchange interface making it possible to plug your own data servers into the Octolink system.
ECU InformationRetrieving ECU information might be one of the basic operations, but Octolink supports much more!
When other tools are unable to change VIN, odometer or other ECU values, Octolink does not accept 'no' and makes it possible using the appropriate security access.
FlexibilityLogena Octolink is very flexible to use.
It uses several data links: CAN bus, K-Line, LIN, Ethernet and analog/digital IO interface.
It supports many protocols:
- KWP2000 over K-Line, CAN bus or Ethernet.
- UDS over K-Line, CAN bus or Ethernet.
- Easy to implement custom protocols through the supported data links.
You can connect to the hardware data link unit in several ways:
- Through the built-in WLAN serving as an Access Point for easy connection to it.
- Through the built-in WLAN serving as a Client connected to your own wireless network.
- Using a single data link unit serving as an Access Point to which multiple other units are connected.
- By means of an Ethernet connection with the option to use the built-in DHCP server for the plug-and-play mode.
- Using an optional 3G modem (especially suitable for automatic synchronization and Remote assistance).
The whole Octolink system is web-based, platform independent (including the hardware data link unit).
No installation whatsoever is needed.
Any device that has WLAN/Internet access and a web browser may be used to participate in the Octolink world.
DTC managementOctolink makes it possible to read or clear DTCs including their freeze frame information.
Does your ECU provide additional information (e.g. Environmental data or some other custom information)?
Don't worry! Octolink will fetch it for you and show it either as a list, graph or in another appropriate way.
All relevant information can be linked to meta data providing additional user-friendly information (e.g. DTC detailed information presented in a human-readable way). Your meta data management is centralized and easy to access through your own Octolink online corner).
CustomizabilityMany parts of the Octolink system as being web-based are easy customizable.
If you prefer your own Look & Feel of the User interface, then developing and applying your own style sheets (skins) is simple and fast.
Have you got stuck with your vehicle equipment because you cannot find a suitable servicing system that supports your own protocols or special features? The Octolink will do it for you by selecting and loading the appropriate customizable protocol scripts.
Do you shudder at the thought to share your proprietary vehicle data? Don't be afraid. The Octolink makes it even possible to plug your own data servers into the Octolink system in order to route all your vehicle data directly to your own domain.
Software updatingUse Octolink to update software components of ECUs using different protocols and software update packages.
Upload, convert, download and manage your software packages online.
Create encrypted, password protected update packages using the online tools.
Does your ECU software rely on custom update packages? Octolink will manage it too.
Online ServicesHave you already discovered the power of a vehicle web-based data system involving Online as well as Offline services? You'll be surprised how the things are clear and easy to manage.
You get your own MyOctolink corner - a customizable user private space.
You manage your credits, features, protocol scripts or style sheets online and load it into the selected data link units in a few mouse clicks.
You do your user administration online (users, their groups and rights) and synchronize it easily with the offline parts of the system.
Your software packages are uploaded, converted, encrypted, dispatched and administrated by using the same, familiar interface - MyOctolink.
Parameter tweakingUse Octolink to read and modify ECU parameters.
Set parameter levels and assign different user groups to it allowing somebody to read it only and another one to change it.
Loading complete parameter sets into your ECU is also possible.
Keep your many parameter sets clear and organized: create, convert and manage them online.
You are sitting in your comfortable office watching fancy gauges and graphs on the screen that represent the real-time data from one of your vehicles driving on a road thousands miles away.
Have your engineers made a new software patch that needs to be applied on a particular vehicle somewhere else and you wonder how to get it safely there?
Well, it's not science-fiction any more. The Octolink system will make more than that possible.
Monitoring / tracingAre you interested in monitoring of ECU signals and showing it in fancy graphs and gauges. The Octolink is the right thing to use.
Would you like to get real-time traces of a CAN bus, LIN or K-Line?
Should there be GPS location info as well?
The Octolink is all you need.
Do you need a long-term trace? No problem. It's also possible.
Needless to say: all signal traces can be exported in several formats or uploaded in your own Octolink online corner.
