CAN IO interaction with physical IO

Post by catphish »

Please could someone confirm how Openinverter's CAN IO function interacts with physical inputs?

Are they simply OR'd together, or is CAN able to override the physical input?

Correct it is or'ed I checked as had a setup running.

Also configuration of IO for can bus settings is explained here: https://openinverter.org/wiki/CAN_communication

Thanks, I read that and believe I understand how to use it. It implied that they must be OR'd (because it seems you inject zeros for ports that are still going to be physical), but wanted to double check.

My car has a big button in the middle of the dash, my intention is to use it as both a start button and a cruise control button (depending on inverter state).
