Linking EtherCAT and CAN

The CAN-EtherCAT gateway can link CAN modules with CANopen (CiA DS 301) or layer-2 (ISO 11898-1) implementation to a realtime EtherCAT network. The EtherCAT slave functionality is in accordance with ETG Modular Device Profile No. 5000. The module can also be configured as Ethernet switch port using the EoE protocol. Firmware updates are possible via web interface (EoE) or FoE (File access-over-EtherCAT).

Physical Interfaces

The CAN high speed (ISO 11898-2) compatible interface allows a maximum data-transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s. The 100BASE-TX EtherCAT interface is compatible to IEEE 802.3 and runs with 100 Mbit/s. The EtherCAT as well as the CAN interface are electrically isolated.

Customization on Request

Customized options are available for customized series production in reasonable quantities. Please contact our Sales Team for detailed information.
