We recommend to review the CANmod Docs Configuration section for a detailed outline.

Below is a short step-by-step and video:

  • Connect the CANmod via USB to your PC
  • Open the CANmod config editor (link above)
  • Load the JSON files from the DEVICE/ drive in the editor
  • Make your changes and download the Configuration File
  • Add the updated Configuration File to your CONFIG/ drive
  • Right-click the CONFIG/ drive and safely eject it

The device configuration is now updated.


Notes

  1. The DEVICE/ drive always contains the default files. Updating your device configuration does not result in changes to the Configuration File on the DEVICE/ drive
  2. If your CANmod is e.g. using FW 01.04.01, your Configuration File must be named 'config-01.04.json'
  3. If your config is invalid, the device will not output data


The CANmod can be used as a plug & play add-on for the CANedge, e.g. by connecting it to the CANedge 2nd port:

  • In the CANedge config, enable the 2nd port 'power out'
  • Use a 'simple' bit-rate on the CANedge CAN CH2 matching the CANmod (default 250k). By default, the CANedge uses bit-rate 'auto-detect' on CH2, which won't work here
  • Ensure the CANedge CAN CH2 'Mode' is set to 'Normal' or 'Restricted' (not 'Monitoring')
  • Enable termination via the CANmod switch (below DB9)
  • Use an adapter to connect the CANmod to the CANedge CH2 (e.g. our DB9-DB9/DB9 or DB9-DB9/USB)

You can also daisy chain multiple CANmod modules. In this case, you should only enable CAN termination on 2 of the modules. Further, you should configure the devices to ensure that all CAN IDs on the daisy chained bus are unique.

The CANmod can be used to stream data in real-time via USB into SavvyCAN - ideal for lab or pre-deployment tests.

To start streaming, go through below steps:

  • Download & unzip SavvyCAN (Windows)
  • Connect the CANmod via USB to your PC
  • Ensure your CANmod uses the latest firmware
  • In SavvyCAN, click 'Connection/Open Connection Window'
  • Select 'Add new device/QT SerialBus Devices/csscan'
  • Click 'Create New Connection'
  • Click 'File/DBC File Manager' and load your CANmod DBC

The CANmod data should now be streaming into SavvyCAN and you can e.g. DBC decode it and create visual plots. See also the CLX000 Intro for details on using SavvyCAN.
