DMC60C CAN communications



Nice to see you got CAN version already!

We would like to use our existing CAN network to control big DC motors, such as fans and linear motors. This controller would be perfect. We would have four of these connected to same CAN bus.

Problem is that there is no CAN communication documentation yet, and we are not using any robot controllers.

What protocol is this using? CANopen?

What i want to do:

1.set some node ID for the controller , so i can control these motors individually.

2. Set pulsewidth from -100% to +100%

3. Get heartbeat from the controller so i know it's alive

All i need is some CAN IDs, and info on what bytes control what :)

Hi @Jani,

I do not know for certain what protocol the DMC60C is using (I will find out), but we do have documentation for the API that the DMC60C uses available here: https://reference.digilentinc.com/dmc60c/api/index.html. Otherwise, the Resource Center for the DMC60C has some additional information including a Getting Started Guide that you may find useful as well.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
