Did You Know You Can Use the Komodo Can Duo Interface with CAN High Level Protocols?

Question from the Customer:

I am new to CAN, and I have some basic questions. Does the Komodo CAN Duo Interface support running as a Host? I have a device with a Dual CAN interface that runs as a Slave/Client. I would like to test this device with a tool that can run as both CAN Master and Host for TPDO and RPDO with periodic delivery.

Also, can the Komodo interface function as a master for a CANOpen slave device?

Response from Technical Support:

Thanks for your questions! The Komodo CAN Duo Interface is a two-channel USB-to-CAN adapter and analyzer. The Komodo interface is capable of active CAN data transmission as well as non-intrusive CAN bus monitoring. The Komodo interface has a transfer rate up to 1 Mbps and includes eight configurable GPIOs. You can use the Komodo interface with the Komodo GUI Software or the Komodo API Software.

The flexible Komodo API allows you to interface with CAN high level protocols and to create a custom program that supports your requirements, such as being able to work with CANOpen.

The Komodo API comes with support for multiple operating systems (Windows, Linux, and Mac), multiple programming languages (C, Python, Visual Basic, and C#), and includes programming examples. For more information about the API, please refer to section 5 of the Komodo CAN Interface User Manual.
