Codesys PiCAN

Tue Jul 26, 2016 12:53 pm

Hello everyboy,

i'm new with the Raspberry Pi and I'm also a beginner in Codesys. So I really don't know much.
I should use the PiCAN to enable a CAN- communication with a motor controller. But i don't really understand how to write a programm, in which i use the CANopen Manager with the choosen controller.
In the end there is a portal axle which i should control over the CAN- connection.

Has somebody an idea how i can start? Or are there somewhere a few examples which i can use to understand the programming in codesys?

from my experiance pican is not very reliable on high busload or/and many slaves.
So if you have the option I would choose doein this by Ethercat/Canopen Gateway - EK1100 and EL6751.
This works reliable..
