Convert Kvaser time channel with CAN Bus Converter




I am using DIAdem 2018 and Kvaser Memorator Pro 2xHS V2. And also, to take understandable data, DIAdem pretty good alternative. However, while DIAdem convert .log file to .tdm file, time channel is scaled by 0.1. For example, if my time datum is 30 as second, DIAdem gives 3 as second. Is there any solution about it?


By the way, I saw a topic about this problem but its date was about 2012. You said that you would solve this problem. Is there any development?

Hi MMTbey,


The Kvaser log files are MDF3-Files with the extension log. If during Bus Log Conversion in DIAdem you choose the log file type “Vector LOG”, then all timestamps will be divided by 10.  If instead you choose log file type "KVASER LOG", then all timestamps are taken as they are, which will result in correct timestamp values being written to the TDM file and loaded into the Data Portal.
