Gryphon G2 Engineer Networks

Our GRYPHON 2 is a hardware adapter that provides remote connectivity for multiplexed automation and automotive communication networks. GRYPHON 2 doesn’t require any programming and is ready to run out-of-the-box as a stand-alone product. It uses an Ethernet connection to provide a high-speed user interface. Users can interface to the GRYPHON 2 by either using Dearborn Group’s Hercules high performance analyzer or writing their own applications using the provided C++ libraries.

The GRYPHON 2 has three expansion slots that lets you install numerous optional Plug-In Modules designed to support specific protocols. Read about Gryphon Modularity.
The benefit of this capability includes the ability to support multi-client connection (e.g., running two client connections – one Hercules application and one user-written test application).

Supported Protocols: CAN (canbus), GMLAN, GMUART, ISO9141-2, ISO11898 (CAN), ISO15765, J1850 GM (Class 2), J1939, J2284, J2411 (GM SWCAN), J2534, KWP2000 (ISO14230), LIN.

The part number for each Plug-In Module option is DG-GRYPH-MOD-X (where the ‘X’ represents an alphabetic letter of a specific Plug-In Module.) Refer to the Gryphon 2 Data Sheet for a list of modules that are supported. Also see Gryphon 2 Modules data sheet.

Note: You must also order at least one Plug-In Module for your GRYPHON 2 to communicate using the protocol of the selected Plug-In Module.
