I am new to the forum and hope you could put me in the right direction.
When designing a J1939 harness what is the physical layer constraints, if multiple ECU's need to be connected? Is there any documentation to help with this.
I am aware of the following, so please correct or add if I missed anything:
- The Backbone of the J1939 bus should not be longer than 40m.
- 2x 120ohm resistor need to be used on the bus ends
- Stub length from the backbone to ECU should not be longer than 0,3m
- There is no official wiring colour that need to be used,although Green(CAN L) and Yellow (CAN H) seem to be the most common used?
If referring to Loop in Loop out each module, what is meant by this (Drawing perhaps)? I understand this is a better way of connecting if it is practically possible.
Thank you in advance for all the comments.
