Manual CAN Commands

Manual CAN Commands.png

To use Manual CAN Commands functionality, the user should select Manual CAN protocol in CAN I/O tab. Afterwards, Manual CAN Commands functionality can be found at the bottom of Manual CAN Settings tab in configurator.

NOTE! Manual CAN Commands can be tested on FW 55.00.09.rev.08 or newer

Manual CAN Commands functionality allows user to send configurable commands in CAN network. Up to 10 Manual CAN Commands could be configured by setting parameters using SMS/GPRS commands or in configurator at the bottom of Manual CAN Settings tab.

The main benefit, of using Manual CAN Commands functionality is that the user is able to control the transport via CAN BUS without requiring additional specific commands implementation from the device's firmware side to perform certain action. To use this functionality, the user must have:

  • TFT100 device with CAN interface;
  • 55.00.09.Rev.08 or newer firmware;
  • Transport with CAN interface;
  • Transport's CAN communication protocol (with information about frames, parameters, ID's, baud rate and commands).
