neoVI FIRE 3 FlexRay

The Most Advanced FlexRay Vehicle Interface, Gateway and Data Logger with CAN FD & LIN

Vehicle Network Interface for FlexRay plus Data Logging System with CAN FD and LIN

2x FlexRay, 15x CAN FD, 4x LIN, 3x Ethernet Interfaces

The neoVI FIRE 3 FlexRay device is specially designed to add FlexRay, CAN FD, LIN and 100BASE-TX Ethernet to your application. The neoVI FIRE 3 FlexRay enables quick setup and monitoring of two FlexRay network pairs. In addition, it includes two complete FlexRay nodes, each with channel A and B physical layers, making neoVI the most advanced multi protocol vehicle network interface and data logger available.

The neoVI Fire 3 FlexRay includes 2x FlexRay, 15x CAN FD networks, up to 4x LIN networks, 2x 1Gb  0/100/1000BASE-T, 1x 10/100BASE-Tx. All networks run simultaneously and are hardware time-stamped. A fully-isolated high-speed ethernet interface allows messages to be sent and received without risk of damage to the networks or your computer.

Configuration using neoVI Explorer

The neoVI FIRE 3 FlexRay has two dual-channel FlexRay nodes. The user can select whether the second FlexRay Physical layer is 1B or 2A in neoVI Explorer. There are five configurations the user may select: Single Channel Network (1A), Dual-Channel Network (1A, 1B, Two Single-Channel Networks (1A, 2A), Cold Start and Disable. In addition users can select 100 ohm, 2.6 kohm or none for termination on each network.

Standalone Logging, Scripting, and Simulation

In addition to working as a vehicle network adapter, the neoVI Fire 3 can also operate in standalone mode. It can run real-time scripts, log data to two removable full-size SD cards, and simulate ECUs and gateways — all simultaneously! It is also possible to run a script to reflash ECUs standalone, without a computer, using data from the SD card.

The neoVI Fire 3 is capable of logging to two full-size SD cards, using real-time, fail-safe FAT32 storage for reliability and PC compatibility.

The neoVI Fire 3 also has a real-time clock for hardware timestamping of all messages. A robust power management system automatically powers down the neoVI Fire 3 and it wakes up again based on network activity or the connection of a PC.

The Power of Scripting – CoreMini

If you need to support a proprietary protocol, set up a simulation to run in parallel with the data logger, or any other custom action, the CoreMini scripting environment allows for you to expand the base functionality to fit your unique needs. This makes the entire system very flexible and adaptable.

Remote Connectivity and Location Services

The neoVI Fire 3 has an onboard dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Secure Bluetooth SPP, and Bluetooth BLE. In addition, the neoVI Fire 3 has a 10 Hz GPS accurate to within 2.5 meters. GPS is provided both as a fleet management tool and within the data logging session for correlating location to your test data.
