dbc (Symbols File) for Explorer + combine CAN message
I'm brand new to CAN, so I have zero knowledge and am trying to find my feet with it. I have a MicroMod Analogue 2 Module that I need some assistance with. I am only using a single 10Vdc input on Ain0 and then transmitting via the CAN output, and I am not using the Aout channels. I have two questions really:
1. Is there a DBC (Symbols) file to use in PCAN Explorer so that the actual voltage input can be read in PCAN Explorer?
2. I would like to take the analogue input and assimilate it with data that sent from another CAN device (1) and then send the combined message to another device (2).
a. Is this possible to construct the message and transmit it from the MicroMod Module? The MicroMod will take an analogue input that will be the Torque Command (and replace it as shown currently as 74.8Nm that is transmitted from Device 1). It will then make a new CAN message to replicate the original one sent by Device 1 for use by Device 3. The benefit is that this will enable much faster torque control than the slower CAN from Device 1.
b. The analogue input will be faster than the CAN message from the second device and we want to transmit the combined message to the third device as fast as possible. In this case will it simply retain the value from the slower CAN to use in the transmitted CAN message to the third CAN device until it sees a change?
Any help / guidance will be gratefully received.
