Connect TC8 to VBOX Setup software as described here.


To allow TC8 to communicate with the Video VBOX it must be set into Timed CAN mode. In this mode TC8 will send CAN data at intervals determined by the timer value. 


The parameters highlighted below are all used so must be set. All other setting can be left as default. 



Baud Rate sets the bit rate of the CAN messages (default is 500 kbps).

The timer value is in milliseconds (ms). A smaller value means data will be sent more frequently, a larger value means data will be sent less frequently. The range of values that can be entered is 0 to 65535 however the minimum value that should be entered is 10. Below this value data values may be repeated on successive cycles. If a value of 0 is entered the module will change it to 1 on the next power cycle.

Frequency output can be calculated as follows:

Freq = (1/Timer) * 1000
The Timer value for a required frequency can be calculated as follows:
Timer = (1/Freq) * 1000
Some example Timer values are shown against the frequency output.


Timer Value Frequency
10 100
50 20
100 10
400 2.5
1000 1

Further information on setting up modules with Video VBOX can be found in the Video VBOX user manual.
