Description Specifications

Add 2x FlexRay, 7x CAN FD, and DoIP / 100Mb Ethernet to Your neoVI The FlexRay Z VNET module is specially designed to add FlexRay, CAN FD, and 100BASE-TX Ethernet to neoVIs which accept VNET modules. This VNET must be used in the Primary VNET slot. The FlexRay VNET Z module enables quick setup and monitoring of two FlexRay network pairs. The VNET includes two complete FlexRay nodes, each with channel A and B physical layers.

  • Interact with the Bosch ERAY FlexRay Core using Windows Development tools such as Microsoft Visual Studio
  • Develop FlexRay / Handler ECU code on the PC
  • Reconfigure FlexRay networks without using device programmers

VNETs Make Expansion Easy

If you need more channels, or different channels, just install another VNET. You can mix and match up to three VNETs in a single device. The device must use the FLEXRAY VNET Z as its Primary VNET. Example configurations include:
  • 2x FlexRay pairs plus 23x DW CAN (FlexRay VNET Z + 2 FIRE 2 VNETs)
  • 2x FlexRay pairs plus 15x DW CAN (FlexRay VNET Z + 1 FIRE 2 VNET)
Expand even more with the RAD IO 2 Series Open IO devices.

VNETs Operate Independently or Together

Although independent, VNETs record data with a single timestamp onto the neoVI’s SD cards.

VNETs Operate via USB or Wireless Interface

All VNETs are accessible via USB, like our popular neoVI network adapters. They are also accessible and programmable via wireless interfaces. This makes the neoVI ideal for any application, whether you’re data logging in a remote area, on the test track, or running a test stand with multiple ECUs.

neoVI DLL, J2534, Linux, and RP1210 Support

For those who prefer to write their own software, the FlexRay VNET Z supports the neoVI DLL open API. This API includes examples for all popular development environments, including C#, VB .NET, C++ Builder, Visual C++ and LabWindows. We also have examples and drivers for Linux.

Hardware-in-the-Loop Real-Time Performance
The FlexRay VNET Z includes a real-time scripting engine for real-time messaging. For example, you can create an application to load a script into the hardware and interface with the script variables, allowing microsecond-level measurement and control. Vehicle Spy, through its Hardware Acceleration feature, can also send real-time functions to the device, such as periodic messaging, replay, or scripting.

Vehicle Spy Application Software
Our Vehicle Spy software fully supports the FlexRay VNET Z. You can use Vehicle Spy to monitor and transmit on all FlexRay VNET networks simultaneously, as well as its CAN FD networks and Ethernet interface. A Vehicle Spy Enterprise license is required for use of the FLEXRAY VNET Z online or to configure standalone functions. Take advantage of the powerful VehicleScape DAQ interface to quickly load databases, select signals and auto-generate complex scripts. Send, start and stop scripts via USB or the Wireless neoVI server application. Leverage VehicleScape DAQ scripts by modifying them to make a custom solution.
