PCAN USB 'No Driver Found'

    Hello,

    I am working on a CAN diagnostic software tool that uses a PEAK PCAN USB network monitor as the interface into the CAN network. The software builds and compiles and I am able to login to the PLC (using the computer as a PLC for now). Im using 'CoDeSys_Control_Win_V3' runtime and have added a CANbus Device to my project. Upon logging in and selecting the Status Tab on the CANbus device, I see 'No driver found'. I'm guessing this is some sort of configuration issue or setting within my project that has to point to the PCAN USB driver installed on my computer. Can somebody tell me where the driver should be placed so that CoDeSys 3.5 could use it?

    Things I have done:
    Confirmed the PCAN module is working correctly (read, write, and filter functions work as intended)
    Added a CANbus deivce in CoDeSys
    Started the PLC Control in the windows taskbar
    Modified the CODESYSControl.cfg file in the installation directory\GatewayPLC (uncommented Componenet.6=CmPUSBCanDrv)
    Added the PCAN_USB.SYS file into \GatewayPLC\Driver Folder. (was already there, but I over wrote it again)
    Checked for no conflicting baud rates or node ids

    CANbus Device Information Tab:
    Type 15
    ID 181015
    Version 3.5.4.0

    What am I missing?

    Thank You,
    Vadim B.

    Hi,

    if you use current CODESYS Version (V3.5.6.x) and you add

    [ComponentManager]
    Component.1=CmpTargetVisuStub
    Component.2=CmpCodeMeter
    Component.3=CmpWebServer
    Component.4=CmpWebServerHandlerV3
    Component.5=CmpPCANBasicDrv

    to the "c:\Program Files\3S CODESYS\GatewayPLC\CODESYSControl.cfg"
    it will work like a charm
    Even using several Peak-USB adapter connected (several CAN bus) are possible and doing CAN View at the same time while the runtime is running will work.

    PS: this is a CODESYS V3 question... will be moved to the CODESYSV3 section

    Hello,

    I want to use my PEAK CAN USB dongle with 'CoDeSys Control Win V3'.
    I followed Edwin's instructions and added 'Component.5=CmpPCANBasicDrv' to '\\GatewayPLC\CODESYSControl.cfg'.
    But when start my application, CANBus Status shows ' No driver found'.

    Is there anything I forgot?

    Next question: Is it possible to use PEAK CAN USB dongle with 'Condesys Control for Raspberry Pi'?

    Please help!

    Best regards,
    Oleg

    Hi Oleg,

    please check on runtime startup (in the plc logger) if
    CmpPCANBasicDrv component is loaded without error.

    PeakUSB with Pi:
    If you compile the Pi Linux kernel with socket can and enabled Peak USB modules, this should work.
    Maybe the Peak System Forum give here more details:

    I can't get this to work either using Codesys V3.5 SP9 Patch 2 (US) + for Control Win V3.

    Here is my CodesysControl.cfg

    [ComponentManager]
    Component.1=CmpTargetVisuStub
    Component.2=CmpDynamicTextUS
    Component.3=SysCpuMultiCore
    Component.4=CmpHilscherCIFX
    Component.5=CmpPCANBasicDrv
    ;Component.4=CmpBlkDrvCanServer

    The log shows CAN0 (DEVICE_NUMBER = 0): NetID = 0 CmpPCANBasicDrv

    When I go online, the CANBus Status says "No driver found"

    This is just using the demo version, could this be why?

    Thanks,
    Travis

    Hi,
    No should even work with demo version!
    Could you give us the whole logger
    Start Control Win by console (run as admin) and /debug option for a test.
