I narrowed my search of using PCI-CAN card to PCI-7841 from Adlink technologies.. Its got dual CAN network... what exactly does this mean???.. and will this PCI-CAN card support Labview?? Is there any PCI-CAN vendors with low cost supporting Labview..
Thanks & Regards,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Dual CAN networks means that you can connect the card to 2 seperate CAN networks. Similarly to having two different serial ports on your computer.
The Adlink card seems to come with a DLL. You could call that DLL from LabVIEW using a Call Library Function Node.
You could also look at the NI-PCI-CAN cards, which come with native LabVIEW drivers.
However, it seems from your application (from other posts) that you could use a USB-CAN device to perform your 4 computer network. This may be something to consider since cost seems to be an issue.
Have a great day!
hi everyone,now i am busy using pci-7841 to communicate with motion,but i can't find the labview driver of the pci-7841.so i have to use the call library node to visit 7841.dll,it wasters so much time to do so,can you give some sub_vi about pci-7841? thanks!
you should check with your Adlink rep if there are any LabVIEW ecamples available.
CAN hardware (NI-XNET) from National Instrumtents is always shipped with powerful and ready to use LabVIEW examples which save a lot of time and money to get started with your CAN application...
