DMC60c CAN Bus

Question

I am looking at the DMC60c CAN protocol guide and also the software API reference manual. What are the API numbers needed in the CAN message to communicate with the DMC60c. For example if I wanted to send a voltage command using the function driveVoltage, what should go in the API field (Byte 1) of the message identifier?

 

Thanks,

matt

Hi @opethmc,

I have reached out to some of our other engineers more familiar with the DMC60c CAN protocol about this.

Thanks,

Hi @opethmc,

The message identifier for sending control messages, which are the types of messages that are sent for driving the output, is 0x02060000 (API  field = 0 decimal).  You need to append the device number of the target DMC60c to the lower 6-bits. This should be documented in the Output Control Protocol section of the DMC60C CAN Protocol Guide.

Thanks,
Michael
