Using NI-XNET Frame IDs

Last Modified: June 15, 2020

Use frame IDs to prioritize event-triggered frames, filter log file frames, and filter CAN data replay file frames.

The frames that transmit across the network are assigned unique identifiers. You can use these frame IDs for more than just identifying the frame.

Refer to the NI-XNET Hardware and Software Help for more information about frame identifiers.
