Ducati Diavel Service Manual: On-board computers and the can line

The following on-board computers make up the electrical system of the diavel and are connected with each other via the can line (or network):

On-board computers and the can line


The drawing illustrates the network connecting the different computers ('nodes') on the diavel. The dtc system is not a separate unit and is integrated in the bbs.

The main characteristics of the computers used on the diavel are described as follows:

The networked connection of the individual computers (nodes) creates a distributed system in which the nodes may communicate with one another and coordinate their actions by exchanging messages. This offers the following advantages:

The network allowing communication between the different nodes on the diavel is a serial (bus) type can (controller area network) network. Each node contains a circuit that can transmit and receive data to and from the network in accordance with priorities defined by specific bits included within the data itself (the message travelling over the network is always the one with the highest priority). As a result, the can bus network does not need to be managed with a specific centralised arbitration procedure that defines the priorities with which the elements connected to the network must communicate.

Each message travelling over the can network consists of a "train" of electrical impulses containing, as mentioned previously, the priority - in other terms the type of message - the data itself, the confirmation of reception and other data necessary for correct transmission and reception. The train of impulses is transmitted to the bus, which consists of two wires - can h and can l. Each node extrapolates the message and, as a result, the data contained, processing the Sequences of impulses received from on the can h and can l wires independently. This ensures superior reliability, as any interference in the electrical signals is effectively subtracted and eliminated.

One drawing shows the typical voltages on the can h and can l wires for each electrical impulse contained in the train "transporting" information shared by the nodes connected to the network. The other drawing shows the signal extrapolated by each node from the difference between the two former signals.

In short, the advantages of using the can bus are as follows:

Note that the control function for the electrical impulses travelling over the can network has no validity for diagnostic purposes, as the information contained in the trains themselves cannot be identified.

Fault indication
The dds (diagnosis ducati system) indicates all active errors and all inactive but stored errors gathered by the bbs. A simplified summary of the active errors is also shown in the master dashboard ...

 Trip 2  meter
This function shows the distance travelled since the trip meter was last reset (in km or miles depending on the specific application). Holding the button (1, fig. 14) ? pressed for 3 seconds when this function is displayed resets the trip meter. When the reading exceeds 9999.9, Distance t ...

Indicator cons. - Instantaneous fuel consumption
This function indicates the "instantaneous" fuel consumption. The calculation is made considering the quantity of fuel used and the distance travelled during the last second. The datum is expressed in "l / 100" (litres / 100 km); it is possible to change the units of measurement for "consump ...

Warranty
In your own interest, and in order to guarantee product reliability, you are strongly advised to refer to a ducati dealer or authorised service centre for servicing that requires any particular technical expertise. Our highly skilled staff have the tools required to perform any servicing job ...
