Several technical improvements can be obtained by optical connections within CAN bus systems with the use of an optical transceiver, such as secure separation of high voltages and insensitivity to electromagnetic interference (EMI).
As with repeaters, optical transceivers can also be used to extend CAN bus network topologies, including star and tree structures.
