PXI-8512 CanOpen EPOS EPOS2 Communication

Hello,

 

I¡ve just started using PXI last week. I was wondering if anybody has achieved a CAN Communication between PXI8512 and a EPOS or EPOS2 (Maxon Motor Controller).  

What is the best way to tackle this problem? 

 

Thanks in advanced,

 

JCC

Hi JCC,

 

Are you using the CANopen LabVIEW Library for communication? If so then you should be able to find documentation for the controller that lists the addresses and values that correspond to the different functions you can program. If you are not using the library then you can still use high level communication through the instrument driver that is attached to the document linked below.

Thanks for your answer. But it's not possible to use OPEN CAN with a NI PXI 8512 card. The only PXI CAN board that works with OPEN CAN is NI PXI-8461/2 Series 2 2-Port, High-Speed CAN Interface. It's a shame because it seems to be easier.

 

I will need to work with NI XNET API, but i've just started read about it, and about CAN Protocol.

 

Thanks,

 

JCC
