AnaGate CAN - CAN-TCP/IP Gateway
The AnaGate CAN gateway connects a PC, a embedded computer, a
Simatic S7 or other device to a CAN bus via the TCP/IP network
protocol (Ethernet). The AnaGate CAN basically works as a device with no own CAN
identifier on the bus. The CAN identifier can be selected individually when
The CAN messages are transparently embedded in TCP/IP telegrams to enable communication with any
CAN device on the CAN network. This means that a CAN network can be addressed over the Internet or from multiple different PCs over a network.
Higher protocol layers e.g. CANOpen®, Devicenet or J1939 can be used by the controller
system too. WLAN communication is possible too via appropriate devices
The AnaGate CAN can be operated in tree different modes:
- In the gateway mode the CAN messages are transferred transparently over TCP/IP
between the CAN network and the controller platform (e.g. PC) in both
- In the listen mode CAN messages can be recorded without influencing
the CAN bus.
- In the bridge mode up to four arbitrary CAN networks can be
interconnected by up to four AnaGate CAN.
CAN messages are exchanged transparently over TCP/IP between the two AnaGate CAN.
Over appropriate filter lists message exchange between the LAN and CAN bus can be
