PCI-CAN suggestion required...



            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,

Hello Harish,


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!

Re: PCI-CAN suggestion required...

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...
