Setting up CAN

Enable CAN

Inside the web interface of the system go to >> Preferences menu >> Network tab >> Enable CAN >> Save >> Save settings to flash (An icon in the top right corner of the web interface)

Configuration

CAN bus is used for connection of CAN sensors and CAN modules. The device has two independent CAN nodes: CAN1 and СAN2.

Before using CAN sensor module, CAN bus must be configured to operate with this CAN sensor module. To configure CAN bus go to "Main menu" >> "CAN" menu, which in turn has two identical tabs - one for each node.

Each station tab contains current information on the status of the node and a list of  CAN sensor modules connected to this node. 

The following operations can be carried out on the CAN bus node:

  • Refresh - updates the current information on the status of the node;
  • Configure -  launches configuration process of the nodes for CAN sensor modules connected to it, the old configuration is lost
  • Save - saves the list of CAN sensor modules in flash memory;
  • Restart - restarts the CAN bus node.

To delete a CAN sensor module, click on the desired module. A modal window will pop up. Press "Delete" and confirm.

To set up a CAN bus node for operation with the CAN sensor module, connect CAN module to CAN network and run corresponding configuration procedure in the web interface using the command "Configure". The configuration process is displayed at the bottom of the tab and lasts approx. 2 minutes.  Detected modules will be added to the list of modules during the configuration process. After completing configuration the node returns to its normal operation. Sensors of detected CAN modules are added to the tree of elements. 

The names of the sensors are automatically set in the form {module name}{serial number}-{type of sensor} and can be edited.

If you need to remove CAN sensor module from the configuration list use command Delete, then use command "Save" to apply the changes you made and restart the node using the command Restart.
