The CAN-EtherCAT module links any EtherCAT network to a CAN network. The gateway operates as an EtherCAT slave with a maximum of 12 Kbytes input or output data on the EtherCAT bus.
With the CAN gateway one can connect CAN modules with CANopen (CiA DS 301) or layer-2 (ISO 11898-1) implementation to a realtime controller with EtherCAT master. The number of CAN nodes is not limited by the gateway.
The CAN high speed (ISO 11898-2) compatible interface allows a maximum data-transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s.
The 100 BASE-TX EtherCAT interface is compatibel to IEEE802.3 and with 100 Mbit/s. The EtherCAT as well as the CAN interface are electrically isolated.
The gateway can be configured via a web interface.
