Multi-functional CAN-to-Ethernet gateway.

The new IXXAT CAN@net NT 200 is a CAN-to-Ethernet gateway which allows users to connect CAN and Ethernet. Thanks to its two operating modes, CAN@net NT can be used as CAN-Ethernet-CAN bridge and as CAN-to-Ethernet gateway. Equipped with two CAN interfaces, it supports an even wider range of use cases compared to the well-known CAN@net II.

Linking of CAN networks
One of the key features of the CAN@net NT – which is especially useful in e.g. building automation – is the ability to separate CAN networks that are distributed over large areas. CAN@net NT couples the CAN networks via a backbone Ethernet system, allowing existing infrastructures to be used. This segmentation also increases the reliability and stability of the overall system.

Enables remote access
Designed for high performance in harsh environments, another common application for CAN@net NT is remote access to CAN networks via Ethernet – e.g. in wind power plants or in the manufacturing sector. CAN@net NT enables service staff to get access to plants all around the world, simplifying control, service and monitoring of CAN-based plants, reducing costs and downtime significantly.

Besides the bridge operation, linking two CAN networks via Ethernet, the CAN@net NT 200 can also be directly accessed from Windows, Linux, VxWorks or QNX based systems as well as from embedded systems, by using a simple ASCII protocol over a standard TCP/IP socket.

CAN@net NT supports all CAN baud rates from 5 kBit/s to 1 Mbit/s, as well as simultaneous use of 11 and 29 bit identifiers. The TCP/IP-based protocol ensures that no CAN messages are lost when transmitted over Ethernet. The device configuration is easily made by using a Windows configuration tool.

More variants of the CAN@net NT, with PC interface operation mode, 4 CAN channels and CAN FD support will soon be released.
