Configuration and Diagnostic Software

Phoenix controllers are supported by PC software that allows loading, editing, and saving of configuration parameters, as well as diagnostic status reporting.

In order to use this software to configure a controller, it must be connected to the controller using a supported CANBUS/USB adapter:

USB Adapter

  • Peak Systems PCAN-USB or similar. Drivers for Windows operating systems can be found here.
  • Kvaser LeafLight V2 or similar. Drivers for Windows operating systems can be found here.

Installation

  1. Install a supported USB/CAN adapter
  2. Download and install the Phoenix Diagnostics App
  3. Use the CAN adapter to connect the motor controller to the PC. Remember to provide proper CANBUS electrical terminations if needed

Using the App

After installation run the Phoenix Diagnostics App.

You may need to sign in the first time you run the program. Opening Screen1 Press the "SIGN IN" button and enter "oem" in both fields to sign in. Opening Screen2 Select the CAN port. If none are listed try the refresh button. If that does not work check your device connection. Opening Screen3 Select the baud rate. Opening Screen4 Press the "CONNECT" button and the main inspection screen should appear. If it does not appear try a different baud rate and verify that you have proper CAN bus termination.
