Signal type conversion

Post by moataza151 » Wed 2. Jan 2019, 17:09

Hello,

I have a PCAN-GPS and I am creating a database file to read the physical CAN signals. I have an issue with the signal type, the device manual says the GPS_Longitude _Degree is a Floating-point number however the signal length is 16 bit (length of an integer) is there any way to work around this issue.

Thank you!

Hello,

the table in the manual is a little bit unclear at this point. Only the GPS_Longitude_Minutes signal is a float value while GPS_Longitude_Degree is a 16 bit unsigned int.
You can find a signal description in our symbol file format in the PCAN-GPS-Package that you can download on the product web page (Examples/PCAN-Explorer/PCAN-GPS_example.sym). You can view / edit / export symbols using the PCAN-Symbol Editor. Might avoid you some work...

BR,
Stephan
