You can edit CAN cluster properties in the CAN cluster dialog.

The available properties are:

  • Name—The cluster name, which must be unique within the database.
  • Baud Rate—Use the Baud Rate drop box to select from a list of commonly used baud rates or specify a custom baud rate with the <Custom> entry. If you select <Custom>, a dialog pops up that you can use to specify a custom, nonstandard baud rate. You can enter a nonstandard baud rate, edit the bit timing register values, and adjust the sample point. For more information about custom baud rates, refer to the NI-XNET Hardware and Software Help at Start»Programs»National Instruments»NI-XNET»NI-XNET Documentation»NI-XNET Manual.chm.
  • I/O Mode—A ring describing the CAN standard to be used:
    • CAN: The old CAN 2.0 standard.
    • CAN FD: A new standard with longer frames up to 64 bytes.
    • CAN FD + BRS: A CAN FD with baud rate switch. This uses a higher baud rate for the data bytes for improved performance.
  • FD Baud Rate—Use the FD Baud Rate drop box to select from a list of commonly used baud rates or specify a custom baud rate with the <Custom> entry when the I/O Mode is CAN FD + BRS. If you select <Custom>, a dialog pops up that you can use to specify a custom, nonstandard baud rate. You can enter a nonstandard baud rate, edit the bit timing register values, and adjust the sample point. For more information about custom baud rates, refer to the NI-XNET Hardware and Software Help at Start»Programs»National Instruments»NI-XNET»NI-XNET Documentation»NI-XNET Manual.chm.
  • Application Protocol—The higher level protocol run on the cluster. This protocol can be None or J1939. If you change this protocol while frames exist in the cluster, you are asked whether to convert the frames according to the protocol.
  • Comment—A comment about the cluster. This comment is informational only.
