Online Demo / Manual- Controller Channels Map Screen
The [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 or .PLB ("Prototype Label, Blocks"), which is useful for creating new label files or taking a "snapshot" of all available data from an ECU.
Click [Go] to begin the process, the results will automatically be saved to your C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS\Logs directory.
