    Reads the state of J1939 communication using an XNET session.

    datatype_icon

    session in

    The session to read. This session is selected from the LabVIEW project or returned from XNET Create Session. The session must use a LIN interface.

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    session out

    An output that is the same as session in, provided for use with subsequent nodes.

    datatype_icon

    J1939 comm

    An output that returns a LabVIEW cluster containing the communication elements.

    datatype_icon

    PGN

    A parameter that specifies the J1939 PGN that occurred the last error. You cannot assign a PGN to every error.

    datatype_icon

    src address

    A parameter that specifies the source address that occurred the last error. You cannot assign a source address to every error.

    datatype_icon

    dest addr

    A parameter that specifies the destination address that occurred the last error. You cannot assign a destination address to every error or warning.

    datatype_icon

    transmit error

    A parameter that indicates a transmit-related error occurred.

    datatype_icon

    receive error

    A parameter that indicates a receive-related error occurred.

    datatype_icon

    fault?

    A parameter that indicates that a fault occurred, and its code is available as fault code.

    datatype_icon

    fault code

    A parameter that returns a numeric code you can use to obtain a description of the fault. If fault? is false, the fault code is 0.

    A fault is an error that occurs asynchronously to the NI-XNET nodes your application calls. The fault cause may be related to CAN communication, but it also can be related to XNET hardware, such as a fault in the onboard processor. Although faults are extremely rare, XNET Read (State J1939 Comm) provides a detection method distinct from the error out of NI-XNET nodes, yet easy to use alongside the common practice of checking the communication state.

    To obtain a fault description, wire the fault code into the LabVIEW Simple Error Handler error code input and view the resulting message. You also can bundle the fault code into a LabVIEW error cluster as the code element and use front panel features to view the error description.

    error out

    Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Description

    You can use XNET Read (State J1939 Comm) with any XNET session mode, as long as the session interface is CAN. Because the state reflects the CAN interface, it can apply to multiple sessions.

    Your application can use XNET Read (State J1939 Comm) to check for problems on the J1939 network independently from other aspects of your application. For example, you intentionally may introduce noise into the CAN cables to test how your ECU behaves under these conditions. When you do this, you do not want the error out of NI-XNET nodes to return errors, because this may cause your application to stop. Your application can use XNET Read (State J1939 Comm) to read the J1939 network state quickly as data, so it does not introduce errors into the flow of your LabVIEW nodes.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Supported
