Log received CAN FD messages
Vehicle Network Toolbox: CAN FD Communication
The CAN FD Log block logs CAN FD messages from the CAN network or messages
sent to the blocks input port to a
.mat file. You can load the saved
messages into MATLAB® for further analysis or into another Simulink® model.
Configure your CAN FD Log block to log from the Simulink input port. For more information, see Log and Replay CAN Messages.
The Log block appends the specified filename with the current date and time, creating unique log files for repeated logging.
If you want to use messages logged using Simulink blocks in the MATLAB Command window, use
convert messages to the correct format.
You need a license for both Vehicle Network Toolbox™ and Simulink software to use this block.
You cannot have more than one CAN FD Log block in a model using the same PEAK-System device channel.
The CAN FD Log block supports the use of Simulink Accelerator™ mode. Using this feature, you can speed up the execution of Simulink models. For more information on this feature, see Acceleration (Simulink).
If you are logging from the network, you need to configure your CAN channel with a CAN FD Configuration block.
Type the name and path of the file to log CAN FD messages to, or click Browse to browse to a file location.
The model appends the log file name with the current date and time in the
YYYY-MMM-DD_hhmmss format. You can also open the block mask and
specify a unique name to differentiate between your files for repeated logging.
Type the variable saved in the MAT-file that holds the CAN FD message information.
Specify the maximum number of messages this block can log from the selected device
or port. The specified value must be a positive integer. If you do not specify a value
the block uses the default value of
10,000 messages. The log file
saves the most recent messages up to the specified maximum number.
Select the source of the messages logged by the block. Possible values are
CAN FD Bus or
Input port. To log messages from
the network, you must specify a device.
Select the device on the CAN network that you want to log messages from. This filed
is unavailable if you select
Input port for Log messages
Specify the sampling time of the block during simulation, which is the simulation time as described by the Simulink documentation. This value defines the frequency at which the CAN FD Log block runs during simulation. If the block is inside a triggered subsystem or to inherit sample time, you can specify –1 as your sample time. You can also specify a MATLAB variable for sample time. The default value is 0.01 (in seconds).
