Frame:CAN:Start Time Offset

Last Modified: February 5, 2020

Specifies the amount of time that must elapse between the session being started and the time that the first frame is transmitted across the bus. This is different than the cyclic rate, which determines the time between subsequent frame transmissions.


This property affects the active frame object in the session. Review the Frame:Active property to learn more about setting a property on an active frame.

Data type: datatype_icon

Long Name: Frame:CAN:Start Time Offset

Class: XNET Session

Permissions: Write

Use this property to have more control over the schedule of frames on the bus, to offer more determinism by configuring cyclic frames to be spaced evenly.

If you do not set this property or you set it to a negative number, NI-XNET chooses this start time offset based on the arbitration identifier and periodic transmit time.

This property takes effect whenever a session is started. If you stop a session and restart it, the start time offset is re-evaluated.

Where This Property Is Available:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Not supported

Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
