Visual Basic V6 Demo:

CAN232 software is written in VB version 6 and is a simple software to demonstrate how to "talk" to the CAN232 in Visual Basic. To be able to compile and change the code you need the VB6. If you only need the executable file, just download the ZIP file and unpack and run the CAN232.EXE file (Note however that you need the VB6 runtime files to be able to run it, we didn't include them here to save space and bandwidth). Instructions are in the frmMain.frm file on how to use the sofware. Download the latest version, the old version 1.0.0 is there only for reference and for old CAN232 version 1 users.

Download ZIP file with VB6 Project and Executable file (13KB), version 1.0.0.

Download ZIP file with VB6 Project and Executable file (14KB), version 1.0.1.


Delphi:

CAN232 Monitor software is written in Delphi version 5 and is a simple tool to send and receive CAN frames at any given standard CAN speed and COM port. The software polls the CAN232 automatically at 100mS interval and an eventual frame is automatically listed in the window. It is also possible to send frames from it by setting up an ID, Data length (DLC) and 0 to 8 data bytes in hex. The software comes with full source code and uses a freeware LIB for the RS232 communication (see below for links to the RS232 LIB). This free version is free to use and modify to suit your needs and we cannot give any support on it or the RS232 LIB since it is freeware. To be able to compile and change the code you need the RS232 LIB as well. If you only need the executable file, just download the ZIP file and unpack and run the CAN232.EXE file.

Soon there will be an extended version with full source code as well, which enables faster polling, logging to file and much more plus support from us. All this for a small fee, check back soon for more information.

Download ZIP file with Delphi Project and Executable file (237KB), version 1.05.

We originally developed this using version 2.6.3 of Dejan Crnila's ComPort LIB, however his original Website has disappeared from the web, after a bit of research we found out that the project has moved to SourceForge and is now developed by several peoples. A new version is availible which we havn't tested yet with the Delphi Application. We will do this soon.

C Sample Program (Linux) :

CAN232 Project in C for Linux is written by Attila Vass from USA. He has made some excellent programs for the CAN232 such as a Acceptance Register Calculator, Data Collector and Logger and much more mainly to be used to log CAN from 04 Prius, however much of the general source code could be used as getting started with C & Linux. All source code and information could be found at his site.

These C files can be ported to e.g. Windows platform or any other C environment, since all source code is included. Currently LAWICEL cannot answer any support related questions of this project, contact information can be found at the site below.

C++ Sample Program (Linux) :

CAN232 Project in C++ for Linux written by Svenn Rönnbäck of Luleå University of Technology in Sweden. This project will use socket communication for the CAN232, so it is actually possible to be anywhere in the world to control the CAN232 through sockets. There will be a JAVA client for it as well soon. More information will be here and also on the link below as the projects develops. The code is under the GNU licence. There is a readme file there to describe the project more in detail.

These C++ files can be ported to e.g. Windows platform or any other C++ environment, since all source code is included. Currently LAWICEL cannot answer any support related questions of this project, contact information can be found at the site below.
