LabSat 3 firmware release offers new features

Posted in News

A new firmware update for LabSat 3 is now available to download in the 'Customer Area'.

This release includes the addition of:

CAN Arbitration

Up until now, LabSat 3 has been able to record data from two separate CAN Buses into a digitised format. Now it is possible to record CAN signals into a simple text file which is saved into the same directory as that of the GNSS data. The advantage to CAN arbitration is that when it is replayed onto a Bus it does so without ‘speaking’ over the top of all other traffic, thereby avoiding Bus errors.

Individual CAN frames can also be filtered so that only a selection of IDs are recorded.

“Play From/For” and “Record For”

Via the front panel (rather than only over Ethernet) it is now possible to start a scenario from a certain point within it rather than always from the start, and for a selected period of time rather than the whole scenario length. It is also now possible to record for a selected length of time from the moment the recording is started.

Additional Config Commands via Ethernet

The API/SDK will soon be updated so that new commands allowing for the configuration of CAN and triple constellations are possible via telnet.

NMEA Control over Ethernet

The streaming of NMEA can now be enabled or disabled via the Ethernet connection.

Mute Constellations

Previously it was only possible to mute ALL constellations during replay, but now the user can choose to mute a specific constellation whilst replaying.

The LabSat manual has been updated with all the additions to this firmware – please refer to this for further detail.
