Using J2534 and PCANBasic at the same time.

Post by dgulyas » Thu 1. Jun 2017, 03:28

Hi, I have a problem where I need to use two pieces of software, one J2534 and one using the PCANBasic API via C#, but it looks as though both cannot access the hardware at the same time. Is there a way to use both? I have a PCAN-USB interface.

Hello,

sorry but this is not possible. You need several PCAN-USB devices if you want to access the same CAN bus with different protocols at the same time by using different PCAN-Basic based applications.

PCAN-Basic channels don't allow multiple connection. Since it is used for underlying CAN communication when using any other high layer protocol like PCAN-ISO-TP, or PassThru (J2534), two applications will not able to use different protocols with the same PCAN-USB at the same time.
Best regards,
Keneth
