trace 2 channels with pcan-basic dll

Post by tuttoaldoc » Fri 3. May 2019, 16:33

hello,
I'm using the digiinst labview driver that is based on pcan-basic driver. Everything works fine if I use one or more channels (using pcan-sub pro). Now I would like to do a trace of 2 channels at the same time as pcan explorer does. It is possible? I was able to trace each channel separately on a different file but I would like to do a single trace file of both channels.
Thanks for the support
best regards
Michele

Hello,

this is not possible since PCAN-Basic only supports single channel connections. This is also true for the data viewer PCAN-View.

The PCAN-Trace formats for single channels are:
  • PCAN-Trace v1.1: Introduced and used by PCAN-View version 3.x, and used by PCAN-Basic for CAN tracing.
  • PCAN-Trace v2.0: Introduced and used by PCAN-View version 4.x, and used by PCAN-Basic for CAN-FD tracing.
Best regards,
Keneth

Hello,
thank you very much for your quick answer. I guess that even with developer package there is no way.

no. The developer package doesn't offer a trace functionality like PCAN-Basic
