Overview

The NI-Embedded CAN for RIO software provides support for the embedded CAN ports on RIO to transmit and receive CAN frames.

Software Requirements

The NI-Embedded CAN for RIO software supports the following development environments:

Product Security and Critical Updates

Visit ni.com/security to view and subscribe to receive security notifications about NI products. Visit ni.com/critical-updates for information about critical updates from NI.

New Features

NI-Embedded CAN for RIO 17.0

NI-Embedded CAN for RIO 16.0

NI-Embedded CAN for RIO 15.0

NI-Embedded CAN for RIO 14.0

NI-Embedded CAN for sbRIO 1.0.2

NI-Embedded CAN for sbRIO 1.0.1

NI-Embedded CAN for sbRIO 1.0

Supported Hardware

Refer to Supported Hardware for NI-Embedded CAN for RIO for the latest information about the hardware that each version of the NI-Embedded CAN for RIO software supports.

Behavior Changes

If you use the single-board RIO hardware, the CAN Stop VI stops communication and discards CAN frames in the transmit and receive queues. If you use the CompactRIO with the built-in CAN port hardware, the CAN Stop VI stops communication and saves the CAN frames. After you restart communication by using the CAN Start VI, the NI-Embedded CAN for RIO software sends or receives the CAN frames in the transmit and receive queues.

Known Issues

You can access the software and documentation known issues list online. Refer to the NI website for an up-to-date list of known issues in the NI-Embedded CAN for RIO software.

Accessing the Help

Refer to the NI-Embedded CAN for RIO Help, accessible by selecting Help»NI-Embedded CAN for RIO Help from LabVIEW, for information about the NI-Embedded CAN for RIO software.

Finding Examples

Select Help»Find Examples from LabVIEW to launch the NI Example Finder. LabVIEW examples for the NI-Embedded CAN for RIO software are in the labview\examples\NI-Embedded CAN for RIO folder. You can modify an example VI to fit an application or copy an example and paste the example to a VI you create.

Automating the Installation of NI Products

You can automate the installation of most NI products using command-line arguments to suppress some or all of the installer user interface and dialog boxes.

If the NI product you are installing uses Microsoft .NET 4.0, the .NET installer may run before any NI software installs and may require a reboot before the installation of NI software begins. To avoid a .NET reboot, install .NET 4.0 separately before you install NI software.

For more information about automating the installation of NI products, refer to the following KnowledgeBase articles:

Using NI Software with Microsoft Windows 10

Microsoft Windows 10 is the latest version of the Windows operating system and features significant changes compared to previous versions. Windows 10 introduces several new capabilities and also combines features from both Windows 7 and Windows 8. For more information about NI support for Windows 10, visit ni.com/windows10.

Using NI Software with Microsoft Windows 8.1

When you install NI software on Microsoft Windows 8.1, you will notice a few additional tiles in the Apps view, including shortcuts to NI application software products such as NI LabVIEW, NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX), and NI Launcher. For more information about NI support for Windows 8.1, visit ni.com/windows8.
