I have problem to get CAN interface in my PXI-rack up-and-running. Interface name is invalid
PXIe-1078, with controller PXIe-8820, and CAN module NI-PXI 8512
NI-XNET driver 15.5 (both laptop and on PXI)
When looking in MAX , NI-XNET interface indicates that I have two CAN interfaces named "CAN1" and "CAN2".
It is also possible to use the "port blink" funtion successfully, for both CAN1 and CAN2.
BUT, When using bus monitor functionality, I got error message, indicating that "Interface name given does not specify a valid and existign interface"
See attached pictures below.
Also, when trying to use the example code, CAN Loopback Test.vi, the same error occurs.
Anyone knows how to solve this issue ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
How is it going, have you managed to solve this?
What I found is that you might be missing a compatibility library, since you have NI 8512, check this document:
I am trying to communicate with 8512 CAN Module using PXIE Hardware, the same error is arriving when i run the LabVIEW example code. You have mentioned that you need to close the NI max session. I did not create any sort of session in the NI Max though in NI Max am getting the results(CAN DATA) properly and not in the LabVIEW code, can you help me out??
