How can I create a filter in IXXAT MiniMon v.3

Posted on 2011-11-01

I have a IXXAT USB-CAN bus adapter, that works with the included program "Minimon". When starting the Minimon, data comes scrolling in the window when connected to the CAN bus of the appliance that I want to monitor. Since the "Minimon" doesn't have overwrite capability (=just showing each identifier once and overwriting the value on the screen), I need to change the filter in the filter window. The problem is that I am not able to enter a filter. It just says "Error in filter expression" or something. I can only view nothing or all. So how do I create a filter here?

Alternatively, is there another monitor program that works with IXXAT hardware and that can show values in the "overwrite" way. My task is to look at the CAN bus output of a device, and find which id's are what. I don't have the documentation of the device.

    Got a reply from Nohau that says:
    if you let mouse hoover over the ID (expression selection) field then you will see a pop up window showing in which form to write the expressions. Default setting is that all IDs are accepted.
    So the overwrite function is not there, but one address at a time can easily be examined.
