CAN-RS232 Gateway

In the CAN mode (layer 2), the received CAN data is transmitted transparently to the RS232 interface. Data sent by means of RS232 is packed in CAN telegrams. One configurable identifier is available for each transmission and reception.
In CANopen mode the CAN-GW100/RS232 works as a CANopen subscriber, where the serial data is saved as a bytestream object in the manufacturer-specific object dictionary range.
