[Controller Channels Map]function found in the
Applications Screen rapidly scans through all
possible Measuring Block groups or Adaptation Channels on
any controller and writes a "map" file. For
modules using UDS, a modern HEX-NET or HEX-V2 interface is
required to make channel maps of Measuring Values (the
supporting ROD file for the module must be present as well). Also requiring a HEX-NET or HEX-V2 is the Adaptation Map file format, 'Raw Hex'
... which allows for the ability to restore all the Adaptation channels in a control module to a previously saved state. Restore can only be done from the new "adphex-[whatever].csv" file format,
so obviously one must make a Raw Hex map before one can Restore Adaptations from it.
Note: The Restore functionality may not work on control modules that use the ancient KW1281 protocol.
Choose a Single Controller
Address (such as 01 for Engine), then any Login or security
access code (not needed in most cases, contact Ross-Tech for
assistance), or select Whole Vehicle (only for cars that use CAN-Bus diagnostics, this can still take quite a while, so either use a battery charger or let the engine idle). Next, select either Measuring Values or
Adaptations or both.
Output is your choice of .CSV
("Prototype Label, Blocks"), which is useful for creating
new label files or taking a "snapshot" of all available data
from an ECU.
to begin the process, the results will automatically be
to your C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS\Logs directory.
