CanOpen with IXXAT USB-to-CAN

Go to solution

Good afternoon,
I'm trying to make the CanOpen communication protocol between IXXAT - USB-to-CAN device and labview. So, I'm having problems defining the master / slave nodes, NMT, SDO, PDO, ... Does anyone know how to define this in a simple way in labview?
I have seen that people use the following library:, but is this library generic? Can I use it with IXXAT USB-to-CAN?
Is there any other way? Does anyone have an example?
Thank you very much for your help,

I believe the NI CAN Open library only works with NI series 2 (old) devices. I've had my eye on


this add-on but haven't had a chance to try it out yet.

This will not work

you will have to download VCI driver from the IXXAT homepage.

Maybe they have there a LabView Library for CanOpen.

Or you should do a call to them and ask for support

If not you have to do it in LabView by using the LabView CVI driver
