CAN to PROFIBUS-DP® Slave Gateway

Fast and reliable linking PROFIBUS-DP and CAN

  • CAN-PLC link, e.g. to SIEMENS SIMATIC S7-300 or S7-400
  • DP-slave with a total maximum of 300 bytes process data (input and output)

Coupling Modules with CAN Layer 2 Implementation to PROFIBUS-DP

  • No limitation on the number of CAN nodes by the module
  • 11- and 29-bit CAN-ID support

Configuration with Standard Tools

  • Run-time configuration via PLC
  • No special tools required
  • Plug 'n' play replacement

esd electronics has been a member of the PROFIBUS user organisation e.V. (PNO) for many years.


The module CAN-DP/2 can link any PROFIBUS-DP master to a CAN network. The gateway operates as a PROFIBUS-DP slave-I/O component with a total of maximum 300 bytes process data (up to 244 bytes input and 56 bytes output or up to 244 bytes output and 56 bytes input data) on the PROFIBUS-DP.


With the CAN-DP/2 gateway you can couple CAN modules with CANopen or layer-2 implementation to e.g. a SIMATIC-S7.

Physical Interfaces

The ISO 11898-compatible CAN interface allows a maximum data-transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s. The PROFIBUS-DP-Slave interface automatically recognizes all usual bit rates up to 12 Mbit/s. The DP as well as the CAN interface are electrically isolated.

Configuration and CAN Protocols

The module can be configured via PROFIBUS configuration tool, e.g. the PLC SIMATIC Manager.
