PCAN-RP1210 API

RP1210 Development Package and RP1210 Connectivity to PEAK CAN Interfaces

The Recommended Practice 1210 was defined by the Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) as a standardized API for communication between Windows® applications and communication networks in vehicles.

The PCAN-RP1210 API by PEAK-System is an implementation of the RP1210 version C with support for CAN, J1939, and ISO-TP networks. Thus, the API makes it possible to develop own RP1210 applications and to use already existing applications with CAN interfaces from PEAK-System.

Since July 2020, the PCAN-RP1210 API is provided free of charge. The API is supplied as a setup package along with documentation and additional software. The DLLs required for using RP1210 software with PC CAN interfaces can be installed with the device driver setup.

  • RP1210 Version C implementation according to the specification by TMC
  • Development of own RP1210 applications
  • Thread-safe API
  • Use of RP1210 applications with PEAK CAN interfaces
  • Support of CAN, SAE J1939, and ISO-TP (ISO 15765-2)

Note: The development on the RP1210 version A implementation was discontinued since version A was superseded by version C.

System requirements

  • Windows® 10, 8.1 (32/64-bit)
  • At least 2 GB RAM and 1.5 GHz CPU
  • For the CAN bus connection: PC CAN interface from PEAK-System
  • PCAN-RP1210 API
  • RP1210 connection test application
  • PCAN-CPL
  • Documentation in PDF format
  • Documentation in HTML Help format

Note: The PCAN-RP1210 setup only provides the installation of the RP1210-C implementation. However, the professional development package PCAN-Developer still offers the installation of the outdated version A. This allows customers to keep the way how they deliver and install applications developed for RP1210-A using the PCAN-Developer redistributable package.
