Communication Between CAN BUS Shield V2 and PCAN


Good morning!

I have interfaced Arduino CAN with PCAN using DB9 connector. I tried sending a CAN message from Arduino to PCAN. But the CAN message sent by Arduino can’t be seen in my Trace window of PCAN view*i.e RX message on PCAN

More information:

  1. i have checked the baudrate and its 500kbps on both ends
  2. 120 ohm not connected on PCAN side.
  3. TX led of Arduino CAN is red

Can you please guide in what is the mismatch or where should i correct for it to receive RX messages as well.
PCAN view: Trace window has no RX message
Serial monitor: can init is ok!

Here is the code for a CAN send:

#include <can-serial.h>
#include <mcp2515_can.h>
#include <mcp2515_can_dfs.h>
#include <mcp2518fd_can.h>
#include <mcp2518fd_can_dfs.h>
#include <mcp_can.h>

#include <SPI.h>

mcp2515_can CAN(10); //set SPI Chip Select to pin 10

unsigned char data[8];

void setup() {
Serial.begin(115200); //to communicate with Serial monitor

//tries to initialize, if failed → it will loop here for ever

if(CAN_OK == CAN.begin(CAN_500KBPS))      //setting CAN baud rate to 500Kbps
    Serial.println("CAN BUS Shield init ok!");
    Serial.println("CAN BUS Shield init fail");
    Serial.println("Init CAN BUS Shield again");
    goto START_INIT;

//loading the data bytes of the message. Up to 8 bytes
unsigned char data[8] = {‘C’, ‘a’, ‘r’, ‘t’, ‘e’, ‘r’, ‘a’, ‘!’};


void loop() {
//CAN.sendMsgBuf(msg ID, extended?, #of data bytes, data array);
CAN.sendMsgBuf(0x11, 0, 8, 0, data[8]);


Please help me to know if i need to correct any way.

Also, let me know if any further information is needed

Thanks and regards
