ECUSimLite Application

User Manual

Default Cable making instructions

ECUSimLite is a free PC application which uses our CANMate device and CANMate API to implement ISO15765 compliant OBD2 ECU simulation.

This can be used to test devices like OBD port readers without the need to connect to a vehicle. Using our ECUSimLite along with the CANMate device can save 100s of dollars compared to stand alone hardware simulators which serve just the same purpose!

CANMate + ECUSimLite + Custom cable + Power supply = $ 130
Stand alone ECU simulators > $250 (for the cheapest version)

Features of this lite version are the following:

Mode 1 PID support

Following PIDs are supported. All of these PID values are variable through the application GUI

  • Speed
  • RPM
  • Mass Air Flow(MAF)
  • Fuel Level
  • Engine Coolant Temperature(ECT)
Mode 3 support
Setting DTC (current only one DTC supported)
Mode 4 support
Clear DTC
Message Logging
Incoming and outgoing CAN messages can be logged for later review. This is a handy feature for debugging OBD related products and applications. Please note that stand alone simulators don’t have this feature even though they are much more costly!
Special cabling and power supply requirements
OBD readers require 12V to be provided. We supply a custom cable having OBD female connector at one end and 9 PIN Dsub connector at the other end and tap for providing 12V supply. You can order this cable and 12V adaptor separately. Alternately you can make this cable yourself as per the downloadable instructions.
ECU simulator
Full version of ECU simulator is under development. This will have several variable PIDs and a number of fixed PIDs. This will support Mode 02 and Mode 09 in addition to the modes supported by the lite version.
You can expect this to be priced at a very affordable value as with other DeepThought products !
