Capture CAN Data from the PyroCAN with this DBC file

This DBC file converts the raw CAN data from the PyroCAN infrared temperature sensor into °C values of measured temperature.

DBC files are used by CAN devices such as data loggers. They decode the hexadecimal CAN data and allow it to be stored in a convenient human-readable format.

This file provides the following instructions.

When an an 8-byte message is received on CAN ID = 0x000:

  • Read the first 4 bytes as a floating-point value named ObjectTemperature
  • Read the next 4 bytes as a floating-point value named SensorTemperature
