Adding Signals to Your CAN Module Channel Specification

Last Modified: September 14, 2018

You can configure your CAN module for use in your application by adding signals to the Channel Specification.

Before adding CAN signals to your Channel Specification, you may need to create or manage the databases that provide the signal definitions and scaling information for your application. Refer to the CAN Databases topic for additional information.

  1. Click the Add Signals button on the CAN port that you wish to configure.
  2. Using the Database drop-down menu, select CAN database file that contains your signal definitions.
  3. Using the Cluster drop-down menu, select the desired cluster from your CAN database. All available frames and the signals they contain display in the Signals pane.
  4. Select an Application protocol to apply to the database, if necessary.
  5. Check the associated boxes next to any signals you wish to add to the associated CAN port. To select all signals within the frame, check the associated box next to the frame.

    The Signals pane is organized by frames, and each frame contains a grouping of signals. The Signals Search filter searches for signal names only. To locate a specific frame within the database, search for a signal contained by the frame, select the signal, and then clear the search results.

  6. Click OK. The signals appear in the Channel specification under the associated CAN port.
