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.

On-board computers and the can line

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.

Introduction to the electrical system of the diavel

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 ...

Other materials:

Instrument panel on handlebar
Lcd. Neutral light n (green). Illuminates when the gearbox is in neutral. High beam light  (blue). It turns on to indicate that the high beam lights are on. Engine oil pressure light (red). Illuminates when engine oil pressure is too low. It must turn on at key-on, but ...

Removal of the throttle twistgrip
Peel back the rubber sleeve (a) protecting the throttle control cables. Undo the screws (b) of the throttle grip (6) and open the command. Disconnect the throttle grip cables (10) by unhooking the cable ends (c) from their seats. Remove the throttle twistgrip (6) from the handlebar. ...

Key-on/key-off using the key on the hands free lock with the passive key
Key-on can be performed by pressing the button (7) on the hands free lock and with the presence of the passive key (4, fig. 77). Note The passive key (4, fig. 77) Has a range of a few cm, therefore the key (4, fig. 77) Must be positioned near the antenna (2). Remove the seat (see "remova ...
