Routers & Gateways

PCAN-Wireless Gateway

The PCAN-Wireless Gateway allows the connection of different CAN busses over IP networks. CAN frames are wrapped in TCP or UDP message packets and then forwarded via the IP net from one device to another. The PCAN-Wireless Gateway provides one WLAN connection and two High-speed CAN interfaces. The module is supplied in a plastic case with two D-Sub connectors or a Tyco automotive connector.

 

The configuration of the device is done via a comfortable web interface. Besides a variety of status information, settings for the device itself, for the communication interfaces, and for message routing are provided.

PCAN-Wireless Gateway DR

CAN frames are wrapped in TCP or UDP message packets and then forwarded via the IP net from one device to another. The PCAN-Wireless Gateway DR provides one WLAN connection and two High-speed CAN interfaces. With its DIN rail casing and the support of the extended temperature range, the module is suitable for use in an industrial environment.

Virtual PCAN-Gateway

The Virtual PCAN-Gateway software package provides access for Windows computers to devices of the PCAN-Gateway product line over IP-based networks. Various LAN and WLAN network adapters can be used.

 

Analog to the bidirectional connection of two PCAN-Gateways, message forwarding with so-called routes must be set up between the hardware and the software. At first, two routes have to be created on the configuration website of the hardware, one for sending and another for receiving. Then, the appropriate counterparts of these routes must be established within the configuration software.

 

Due to this connection, the PCAN-Gateways are being integrated in the established PCAN environment and can be used like a conventional PEAK CAN interface. For example, the traffic on the CAN channels can be displayed and traced by the PCAN-View CAN monitor.

 

Note: The software requires a PCAN-Gateway as a counterpart. It is not possible to establish a connection between two computers with the Virtual PCAN-Gateway.

PCAN-LIN

The PCAN-LIN module enables CAN, LIN and serial participants to communicate. The module is supplied in a plastic casing and includes firmware which enables data to be exchanged between the different bus systems. Various modes can be set up with the aid of configuration software. Then for instance the module acting as the LIN master can request data and route the incoming LIN data to the CAN bus and/or the serial interface. Data can be routed between CAN and LIN with an ID offset.

PCAN-RS-232

PCAN-RS-232 is a programmable module for the communication between RS-232 and CAN. The conversion of data traffic is done via a NXP LPC21 series microcontroller.

 

Using the supplied library and the Yagarto GNU ARM toolchain (contains the GNU Compiler Collection GCC for C and C++), custom firmware can be created and then transferred to the module via CAN. This gives a whole range of options for manipulation, evaluation, filtering, and routing of the data traffic.

 

On delivery the PCAN-RS-232 is provided with a demo firmware that routes from CAN to RS-232 and vice versa. It allows to configure the data transfer as well as the hardware with serial control commands. The corresponding source code is included as an example in the scope of supply.

 

Requirements:
The transfer of the firmware via CAN requires a PEAK CAN interface.

PCAN-Router

The PCAN-Router is a dual channel CAN module whose NXP LPC21 series programmable microcontroller provides the option of using the CAN messages on both channels on a flexible basis. This gives a whole range of options for manipulation, evaluation, filtering and routing of CAN messages.

 

Using the supplied library and the Yagarto GNU ARM toolchain (contains the GNU Compiler Collection GCC for C and C++), custom firmware can be created and then transferred to the module via CAN. At delivery, the PCAN-Router is equipped with a demo firmware that forwards CAN messages 1:1 between both channels at 500 kbit/s. The corresponding source code is included as example in the scope of supply.

 

The module is installed in an aluminum profile casing, and is shipped in versions with two D-Sub connectors or a screw-terminal strip.

 

Requirements:
The transfer of the firmware via CAN requires a PEAK CAN interface.

PCAN-Router FD

The PCAN-Router FD allows the connection to two CAN FD or CAN busses. Based on a ARM Cortex M4F microcontroller, the module’s behavior and the data routing between both CAN FD channels is freely programmable. In particular, the module allows the conversion from CAN to CAN FD or vice versa. This makes it easy to accomplish the integration of CAN FD applications into existing CAN 2.0 networks.

 

Using the programming library and the GNU compiler for C and C++, a firmware is created and then transferred to the module via CAN. On delivery, the PCAN-Router FD is provided with a demo firmware. The corresponding source code is included as example in the scope of supply.

Requirements:
The transfer of the firmware via CAN requires a PEAK CAN interface.

PCAN-Router DR

The PCAN-Router DR has two High-speed CAN channels. Their bit rate is adjusted with a rotary switch on the device front. The module forwards the message traffic bi-directionally 1:1 between both connected CAN busses. With its DIN rail casing and the support of the extended temperature range, the module is suitable for use in an industrial environment.

 

The ports of the device are isolated against each other and against the power supply with at least 500 V. Furthermore, CAN 1 has a separation voltage of up to 5 kV conforming with IEC 60601-1. With its DIN rail casing and the support of the extended temperature range, the module is suitable for use in an industrial environment.

 

Just like the PCAN-Router in the aluminum casing, the PCAN-Router DR can be freely programmed. A corresponding development package is included in the scope of supply.

 

Requirements:
The transfer of the firmware via CAN requires a PEAK CAN interface.

PCAN-Router Pro

The PCAN-Router Pro allows to join the data traffic from four High-speed CAN busses. The behavior of the router is configured via the CAN bus with the provided Windows program PPCAN-Editor. As well as pure forwarding, the CAN data can be processed, manipulated, and for example, filtered in a number of different ways. There are a variety of function blocks and other settings available to the user for configuration setup. Furthermore, there is a virtual fifth CAN channel which is used for recording all data traffic to a CompactFlash card.

 

As an alternative to the standard firmware which the PCAN-Router Pro is equipped with at delivery, custom firmware based on the ARM microcontroller NXP LPC2294 can be created and implemented. The scope of supply includes a library and the Yagarto GNU ARM toolchain (contains the GNU Compiler Collection GCC for C and C++).

 

CAN transceiver modules in the PCAN-Router Pro allow a flexible adaptation of each CAN channel to the requirements. For example, Low-speed and Singlewire CAN transceivers are also available on request.
