Using CAN on the RT Box 1

0 votes


I'm trying to make use of the CAN interface on the RT using the digital breakout board.

As soon as I check the CAN1 in the Coder options I get an error saying:

"Target response 401, Error transfering - server replied: Internal Server Error

Communication with realtime simulation failed."

when I start the build process. This happens with an empty PLECS model and with and without any connection to the D-Sub connectors.

Same happens when using the CAN Transmitter from PLECS standalone.

I have also monitored the CAN interface using a CAN-2-USB adapter and did not see any sort of communication by the RT box.

See attached a screenshot of the whole setup.


Best regards
