CAN Bridge

Configurable CAN-to-CAN Bridge

Remark: This product is not recommended for new developments.
For new projects we recommend to use the successor product,  CAN Bridge NT 200/420

The CAN Bridge allows the coupling of two CAN networks, including networks with different bit rates. Unlike a CAN Repeater, which only translates the electric signals, the CAN messages are received completely by the CAN Bridge and then sent to the other CAN bus network in line with existing filter and conversion rules (Store-Forward principle). With the aid of conversion rules (gateway tables), CAN messages can be filtered or forwarded under another identifier. With these mechanisms, the bus load can be reduced in the individual networks by only sending messages which are of interest to the other network.

Features and Benefits

  • Allows larger system expansion
  • CAN Id Filter and conversion functionality
  • Increased system reliability
  • Galvanic isolation optional
  • Cost savings due to simple wiring

The CAN Bridge has a powerful 16-bit microcontroller that can process bursts at higher data rates without message loss. LEDs signal the current status of the coupled networks.
The CAN Bridge is configured via a configuration file which is downloaded to the device by a loader program.
The CAN Bridge is available in three different versions: as an industrial version in either a DIN rail housing or in a robust metal housing, and as an automotive version in a robust metal housing.

CAN Bridge Configuration

The configuration of the CAN Bridge can either be made using a configuration file, which is uploaded to the device via RS232, or by using a special Windows gateway configuration tool. This gateway configuration tool enables an easy and quick drag & drop.
