4.3 CAN Menu

This page has an overview of the CAN menu in the VBOX Setup Software connected to a VBOX 100 Hz Speed Sensor (v5). This is where you can configure the CAN output settings and select transmitted identifiers.

Configure the output baud rates and termination and export the channel information as a .dbc file.

Channel usage

This area will display the CAN bus channel load. 

If the bus loading is more than 70%, the icon in the top right corner will become red. When it is more than 75% the icon will start flashing. If you choose to write to the unit while the CAN bus loading exceeds 70%, you will trigger a warning message.
