Hello,

 

We have a USB to CAN compact device from IXXAT and we have build a labview driver according to the manual to communicate and read through the CANBus.I our PCB we have two sensors which are measuring the distance and transpose it into voltage, and we would like to read this voltage through the CANBus. Since we are able to reading through the CANBus we must transpose our data with use of an ADC because our data can be in HEX,BINARY,DECIMAL format and we must transpose them to voltage because that is our concern, So the questions are:

 

 1)With the Vi we have build we are able to take the right messages through the CANBus?The name of the Vi we are using is named Read from Can.vi and is in the Zip file i am sending you

 2)How we create the ADC to transpose our data in voltage? Is this possible?

 3)Can provide us a solution for the above?

 

 I am sending you the datasheet, a zip file with all the Vi's we have create according to the datasheet and another zip file which contains an ADC we create and a photo of the CAN message we are receiving 

 

Thank you in Advance

Hi Eugen,

 

as far as I understood the communication is implemented via DLLs:

- VCILVA.DLL

- VCINPL.DLL

- VCIAPI.DLL

But what is missing is an example VI.

Has some one succeeded to code an example VI to communicate via the IXXAT USB-to-CAN compact?

 

Regards,

 

Stefan

In the meantime I found some LabView code:

IXXAT USB-to-CAN Compact LabView examples

 

But when I open the containing sample-VI "CanChannelRead.vi"

LabView looks for the file "findwindow.vi", has someone found the

VI somewhere?

This and other missing VI can be found, if you install as well:

VCI 3.5.2.4268 Installation

 

But then you face the problem to find the "vcilva.dll"?

 

Any idea?

IXXAT offers  perfect support, response time: 3 min!!!!!!

The support answered  that the driver installation routine "VCI V3" installs the  necessary

driver VIs in the Labview installation folder:

C:\Program files\National Instruments\LabVIEW-X\LabVIEW X.0\user.lib\Ixxat\,

On my computer this was not the case, if you face the same problem or if you install Labview

after you have installed the "VCI V3 driver  suite" you should copy the files to the above mentioned

labview sub-folder.

 

In a second e-mail, response time: 15min

the support also answered the question were the DLL-files are located, they are copied to the "system32"-dir

in the "windows"-directory.

My problem was probably that  I installed (due to lack  of space on c:\) the "VCI V3" software on "d:\Programme".

 

Thank you Mr. Stobe from the  IXXT support for your fast help!!!
