AnaGate CAN X4 - CAN-TCP/IP Gateway
The AnaGate CAN uno 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 uno 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 uno can be operated in three 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 LAN bridge mode each interface can be
sepearately interconnected to an arbitrary CAN network via an additional AnaGate CAN
or AnaGate CAN uno/duo.
CAN messages are exchanged transparently over TCP/IP between the two AnaGate
The AnaGate CAN uno is substantially more efficient than the established
AnaGate CAN model because of its 32 bit processor.
With full bus utilization at high bus speed (e.g. 1MBit) on the CAN field bus
all CAN messages can be processed and sent on to the personal computer by a
AnaGate CAN uno.
As Embedded PC with Linux platform the AnaGate CAN uno permits also the flexible
extensions by downloading and running of application programs. The existing two
USB interfaces and the digital inputs/outputs can be accessed too.
The AnaGate CAN uno
is additionally available in a specific case which can be directly mounted to
the DIN rail (see also shop for more info).
