Installing Systec USB CAN gateways

Description

Goal: To install Systec USB-CAN gateways as well as CanOpenOPC server properly under Windows.

Required: Driver Package from Systec, Driver-Convertor dll for Systec, CanOpenOPC server, dot NET framwork 2.0(required by CanOpenOPC server).

Location: Most softwares in S:\Systec CAN Module, dot NET framwork in S:\Windows.

Details

step 1: Disconnect the can gateway, and open S:\Systec CAN Module\bin\index.html.

step 2: Click the "Install USB-CANmodule for Windows 2000/XP" to install the driver and some utilities.

step 3: Copy the S:\Systec CAN Module\extra\Kvaser_SystecUSB.dll to C:\Windows\System32 or C:\WINNT\system32, and rename it as canlib32.dll. In principle, the driver should be ready to work now.

step 4: If dot NET framwork is already installed, go to step 5. If not, install it. You can get it from S:\Windows\dotnetfx.exe.

step 5: Extract S:\Systec CAN Module\extra\OPCSetup.zip, and execute "setup.exe" install it. If there are no error, go to step final . If not, go to step 6.

step 6: Because some errors occured, you need to register the OPC component manually. Type "regsvr32 C:\CanOpenOPC\kvaser+.dll" to register kvaser interface, and "C:\CanOpenOPC\CanOpen25+.exe /RegServer" .If there are still some errors, go to step 4. If not, go to step final.

step final: Have fun.

Comments

More details about the OPC setting, please refer to C:\CanOpenOPC\Docs\*

For debugging and testing, you can use C:\CanOpenOPC\Tools\WinHost+.exe
