SAE J1939-82 Compliance describes the compliance tests and procedures to verify an SAE J1939 ECU will operate correctly on a SAE J1939 network. The purpose of these compliance procedures is to generate one or more test documents that outline the tests needed to assure that an ECU that is designed to operate as a node on a SAE J1939 network would do so correctly. SAE does not certify devices and these tests and their results do not constitute endorsement by SAE of any particular device. These tests are presented to allow testing of a device to determine self-compliance by the manufacturer of a device. The manufacturer can use its record of what procedures were run successfully to show the level of compliance with SAE J1939.
This document has been revised to include new tests for recent changes to associated SAE J1939 documents, update cross references to the document section in the associated SAE J1939 documents, and add clarification to the test descriptions. The new tests have been added to cover changes made recently to the SAE J1939-21, SAE J1939-31, and SAE J1939-81 documents. Test descriptions and test names have been update for many of the tests associated with the SAE J1939-21 and SAE J1939-31 documents primarily for clarification. The tests listed in Tables A5, A6, A7, and A8 were reordered to keep together existing and new tests for similar aspects.
