J1939 Started as a communication and diagnostics tool in the car and heavy duty truck industry, J1939 is quickly becoming the norm in engine communications bus data for many more industustries. Faria Beede has worked with this protocol from its beginning. Today we provide many solutions for the different industries to have adopted J1939.
The J1939 specification - with its engine, transmission, and brake message definitions - is dedicated to diesel engine applications. It has largely replaced J1587/J1708 networks. J1939 is capable of performing all of the functions of J1708/J1587 as well as the control system support and any one application may utilize one or the other or both of these networks.
J1939 uses the CAN protocol which permits any device to transmit a message on the network when the bus is idle. Every message includes an identifier which defines the message priority, who sent it, and what data it contains. Collisions are avoided due to the arbitration process that occurs while the identifier is transmitted. This permits high priority messages to get through with low latency (delay) times because there is equal access on the network for any device.
Faria Beede has developed many instrumentation solutions for the J1939 protoclol. We provide engine monitoring solutions for the Marine, Commercial and Proformance industries. The instruments below are just some of the many solutions Faria Beede has developed to interface with the J1939 protocol.
The MG3000 J1939 digital gateway system, available in the Speedometer or Tachometer, is a feature-rich, intuitive engine monitoring solution for the instrument market.
The digital instrumentation communicates directly with the J1939, NMEA2000 and SmartCraft protocols used by the engine ECU providing an important link between the operator and the engine ECU. With just a push of a button the operator can tell the status of the health of the engine including diagnostic messages, fault alerts, and parameter information.
With a full featured J1939 interface the MG3000 series instruments provide a complete interface for virtually any SAE J1939 data.
Connect to analog and digital signals to reduce installed costs significantly.
The MG3000 and other digital instruments from Faria Beede are fully scalable from a single gauge solution to a full feature multi-gauge applications.
The M150L00 Series Control Kits are designed to provide Plug N’ Play solutions for installations with existing panel designs. These kits are designed to control J1939 electronically governed engines.
With a full featured J1939 interface the L00 series kits provide a complete interface for virtually any SAE J1939 data. With standard features such as “TSC1 Throttle Control”, “Fuel Level Input”, “Engine Oil Pressure” and “Engine Shutdown”, the L00 series kits provide the most features in the price range.
With the traditional look of a round gauge using the latest microprocessor technology the M150L series products provide the user with a traditional “look and feel” for controlling the latest electronic engines. Incorporating the latest technology allows the M150L products to be fully scalable from a single gauge solution to a full feature multi-gauge applications.
The M150L Series Control Panels are a universal platform of products designed to control J1939 electronically governed engines. All M150L15 Series Control Panels are made from 14 gauge cold roll steel with welded seams. All units are powder coated to provide durability under extreme conditions. The L15 series panels provide 4 or 5 inch and 2 1/16 inch gauge openings to allow a choice of expansion gauges including traditional switch gauges.
The M150L Series Control Panels are a universal platform of products designed to control J1939 electronically governed engines. All M150L20 Series Control Panels are provided in a sealed NEMA 4X housing which terminates to a sealed Deutsch weatherproof connector.
