7 J1939 Training Vocabulary (cont.) Message: One or more CAN data frames which transfer a complete piece of information to other devices on the datalink.Multipacket Message: Messages which require multiple CAN data frames. These are handled by the “transport protocol”.Protocol: A protocol is the “language” of how to communicate between devices.

15 OSI Network ModelMost protocols do not specify each layer of the OSI model. J1939 does not specify each layer of the model.Currently the following layers are given specific documents in the J1939 standard Layer 1 -- J1939/11 Layer 2 -- J1939/21 Layer 3 -- J1939/31 Layer 7 -- J1939/71 & /73J1939 / first number past the slash indicates the roughly what layer of the OSI model the specification is addressing. The second number tells you which version of the layer you are working with. For example, there are 5 different physical layers for J1939; therefore, we have /11, /12, /13, /14, ./15 standards.

20 J1939 Training Where do I find out how to interpret the messages? Parameter data messages are found in the J1939/71 standard. Find the PGN first then look up the individual parameter definitions.Fault Code (Diagnostic) messages are found in the J1939/73 standard. You will also need to use the wiring diagram, or AEB for the specific engine to understand what Cummins fault code goes with a SPN / FMI pair.

26 J1939 Addressing Dynamic Addressing Each ECM on the network takes on an address at startup. The specific address may be different from startup to startup.Cummins does not support dynamic addressing; therefore, make sure each device on the datalink has a unique address.NO DYNAMIC ADDRESSING
27 J1939 Troubleshooting Troubleshooting First check the termination resistors.Measure resistance between CAN_H and CAN_L.Resistance should be approximately 60 ohms. If you have a small backbone like in the EA options, this may be closer to 120 ohms.Check for frame errorsUsing CANalyzer or other tool, monitor the J1939 datalink to see if any frame errors are recorded.
28 J1939 Troubleshooting Troubleshooting (cont.) Monitor broadcast parameters using CANalyzerFor multiplexed parameters, verify that the OEM / DOEM is sending the correct source address in the message.Unplug other devices from the datalink so only the PC and ECM are on the network.

43 J1939 Fault Code Interpretation J1939 has several different messages which contain diagnostic (fault) code information.DM1 - Active Fault CodesDM2 - Inactive Fault CodesDM3 - Clear Inactive Fault CodesTypically customers will use the DM1 message to detect when a fault code has gone active.
44 J1939 Fault Code Interpretation The DM1 message can be interpreted in one of two ways depending on which Cummins product you are working on.HHP: QSK19 - QSKV60 use version 1All others: QSB - QSX use version 4Check byte 6 bit 8 to determine which SPN Conversion Method is to be usedbyte 6 bit 8 = 0 = version 4byte 6 bit 8 = 1 = version 1
45 J1939 Fault Code Interpretation DM1 message8 bytes of data are arranged as follows:Byte 1: bits 8-7 Malfunction Indicator Lamp Statusbits 6-5 Red Stop Lamp Statusbits 4-3 Amber Warning Lamp Statusbits 2-1 Protect Lamp StatusEach lamp takes two bits to indicate lamp state00 - lamp is OFF01 - lamp is ON

47 J1939 Fault Code Interpretation DM1 byte 2All 8 bits are reserved for future SAE use.OEMs should ignore all 8 bits in this byte.DM1 byte 3 (for QSX, QSM, QSB,QSC, QSL9 only)Contains the 8 lowest order bits for the SPN (Suspect Parameter Number).Must combine this with byte 4 and part of byte 5 to get the 19 bit SPN number.
48 J1939 Fault Code Interpretation DM1 byte 3 (for QSK, QSKV, QST only)Contains the 8 highest order bits for the SPN (Suspect Parameter Number).Must combine this with byte 4 and part of byte 5 to get the 19 bit SPN number.

50 J1939 Fault Code Interpretation DM1 byte 4 (for QSK, QSKV, QST only)Middle 8 bits of the SPNDM1 byte 5 (for QSK, QSKV, QST only)Contains the 3 least significant bits of the SPN, plus the FMI (Failure Mode Identifier)Together the SPN and FMI map to the Cummins Fault Code.
53 J1939 Fault Code Interpretation SPNCummins Fault CodeFMIExample:Fault Code SPN FMINote: Cummins has some SPN / FMI combinations which point to two different fault codes. Usually the fault codes are related such as low oil pressure (FC143) and very low oil pressure (FC415).

55 J1939 Transport Message Transport Messages Used when data exceeds the 8 byte limitUsually needed during fault code message transmission.Multipacket messageCurrently only the BAM (Broadcast Announce Message) part of the J1939 transport layer used by our products.
56 J1939 Transport Message Transport Protocol TP.BAM Used when more than one fault codes are activeMust be implemented to read fault codesFirst step is to send a TP.CM (Connection Message) with the connection mode being BAM.Next a series of TP.DT (Data Transfer) messages will be sent. These messages contain the actual data.See detailed example hand out
57 J1939 MultiplexingMultiplexing is used to send information from an external device to the engine control module via the J1939 datalink.The engine control module must know the address of the device which is sending the information.Typically only the throttle has been multiplexed on industrial applications.

62 J1939 Multiplexing Example Note the source address is set to 03. This means device 03 is sending a message on the J1939 datalink.The ECM must be calibrated to recognize the throttle from this address or the throttle will not work.On CANalyzer:CF00303x Tx d 8 7D E0 2E 7D FF FF FF FF
63 J1939 Multiplexing Some reasons why the J1939 throttle will not work: Datalink is not functioning.Calibration set to incorrect throttle source address .Customer’s device sending throttle request under the wrong addressCustomer’s device not sending throttle request at allThrottle request is not fast enough and ECM is timing out.
64 J1939 MultiplexingSome speed control has been done via the TSC1 message. (QSK products mostly.)Not recommended unless no other option availableThe TSC1 message has three control modesSpeed Control -- Device tells the engine what speed to operate at (typically use this mode)Torque Control -- Device tells the engine to control torque to a specific valueSpeed / Torque Limit Control -- Specify a speed / torque pair which act as the limits.If we get too many messages too fast, we would have time out problems (which feels like a cutout) or the service tools will not be able to connect reliably to the ECM.

71 J1939 Training - Miscellaneous What about J1939/15?J1939/15 is a physical interface which requires only a two wire twisted pair.It is less noise immune than J1939/11We do not recommend this standard, but the module can interface with it.
72 J Requested PGNSeveral PGNs are described in AEB as on request.On Request PGNs require another device on the J1939 to ask for the specific PGN.Requesting a PGN is done via PGN 59904The reply to the request is to send out the requested PGN per the definition in J1939/7118EA0000x Tx d 8 E5 FE 00 FF FF FF FF FFNote: PGN is byte swapped!
