|The CAN@net NT (now in new black housing) |
allows users to connect CAN and Ethernet
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.
