CAN@net II/VCI, CAN - Ethernet PC-interface

CAN via Ethernet PC-interface

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 allows simple, flexible access from a PC to CAN-bus systems via Ethernet. Due to its ability to support the TCP/IP protocol, the CAN@net II allows the worldwide direct connection to a PC, implementation in an LAN, or, communication with the gateway via the Internet.

Features and benefits

  • Easy CAN access over large distances
  • Common driver interface for easy exchange of the PC interface type
  • Also abailable as gateway/bridge device

CAN-to-PC via Ethernet interface

The CAN@Net II/VCI is connected to a Windows or Linux PC via TCP / IP. Using the supplied CAN driver, the CAN@Net II is controlled in the same way as all other Ixxat CAN PC interfaces. Thus, all VCI-based CAN software and tools can be used in conjunction with the CAN@net II/VCI.

In software, the same API set is available as for the other CAN PC interfaces. The VCI CAN driver is capable of communicating via a PC with up to 128 CAN@net II devices simultaneously.


In addition to the CAN@net II/VCI, we also offer the CAN@net II/Generic. This one can be addressed via a standard TCP/IP socket or can be used as a 'CAN-Ethernet-CAN'-bridge.
