CAN@net II/Generic, CAN - Ethernet gateway

Single-channel CAN-Ethernet gateway and CAN-Ethernet-CAN bridge via TCP/IP

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

The CAN@net II/Generic enables easy and flexible access to CAN systems via Ethernet. This device can be configurated to either a CAN to Ethernet gateway or a CAN to Ethernet to CAN bridge. As a gateway, the CAN@net II/Generic can be paired with any device that supports a TCP/IP socket connection. In a bridge application, two CAN@net II/Generic's form a transparent CAN connection via TCP/IP Ethernet.

Features and Benefits

  • Bridging of large distances and easy system access using Ethernet
  • Filter and conversion functionality
  • Cost savings due to simple wiring
  • Open protocol communication

CAN-to-Ethernet Gateway

In the gateway mode the CAN@net II/Generic is connected to a PC or to a controller platform via TCP/IP. The application program on the host communicates via a standard TCP/IP socket and uses a simple ASCII protocol. As CAN Bus / Ethernet Gateway, the CAN@net II/Generic offers simple, flexible access to CAN bus systems via a LAN or via the Internet.

CAN-to-Ethernet-naar-CAN Bridge

Using two CAN@net II/Generic, a CAN-bus / Ethernet CAN bridge can be implemented. This bridge allows the exchange of CAN messages between two CAN systems via TCP/IP where filter tables can be defined.

Configuration and firmware update

The configuration of the TCP/IP parameters can be performed using a PC tool with automatic device detection. The configuration of the bridge functionality and the CAN communication is supported by an implemented webserver.
