Unlike serial boards, a loop-back cannot be performed on the same port. However, you can perform a loop-back test using the CAN Loopback Test.vi
that can be found through the Example Finder. This VI works with any XNET device. To perform a loop-back test on your NI-XNET device, follow these instructions:
- Connect the 2 ports of your NI-XNET device together by using an appropriate cable
- Open LabVIEW and select Help >> Find Examples...
- Navigate to the Search tab and search for loopback.
4. Open this CAN Loopback Test.vi
and run the program.
