In this tutorial we discuss how to setup Free Form CAN messages. A PDM is used to provide an example of setting up a receive message with multiplexed data and how to setup a filter to receive only the desired message. A transmit message is created then transmitted by calling the transmit action from a user event with a recurring timer.
CANopen - If you have a device you need to communicate with using CANopen protocol you would use the Free Form CAN interface. We do not have CANopen implemented as an application whereby you can import the devices database file and automatically create all of the definitions. This is something that has to be manually created in Free Form and then managed in programming activities.
