RCP2 -> Pectel communication

Posted: Fri Dec 04, 2015 9:13 am
Hi all,

ive just installed RCP2 to a Juno s2000 sports prototype race car, here in cape town , south Africa.

as far as I can gather the RCP and Pectel are communicating to eachother . ive wired it up through the CAN ports on the ECU itself.

now is where the problem comes, how the hell do I get it to register the sensors in order for it to display information on the dashboard on the software?

as far as I can gather I need to write a LUA scrips but I have no idea where to even start.

any help would be much appreciated

To read CAN data you do need to make use of the LUA runtime. All the documentation for the methods we expose can be found at To get started with LUA checkout for info on how to program in Lua. The wiki has lots of examples as well. Hope that helps.

Hi, we also have a full write up on how to integrate CAN data with RaceCapture/Pro. See here:

if you get stuck, let us know and we'll help! You can also post the CAN protocol here and we can help you with the decoding.
