CAN Bus Networking & Infrastructure

The CPC range of CAN bus PC interfaces provides system developers with an extensive range of USB and Ethernet PC integration options and interfacing capabilities. Utilization with Windows and Linux is supported using the CPC Software Interface Framework, which extends a consistent software interface for user applications that is independent the hardware interface being used.

CPC Software Interface Framework

Any of the following products can be used for interfacing between Windows or Linux based PCs and CAN bus resources:

Ethernet to CAN Bus

EtherCAN CI-ARM9 CAN Gateway

The EtherCAN CI-ARM9/RMD provides a powerful rail-mounting Ethernet to CAN Bus gateway. It easily supports communications to CAN bus resources via the PCs Ethernet connection:

  • Ethernet Interface
  • 454MHz Freescale ARM9 CPU
  • Embedded Software Development Kit included with purchase
  • Support for Windows & Linux with CPC Software Interface Framework. proCANtool CAN-Monitor for Windows included with purchase.
  • FCC Class A Verified (use restricted to commercial, business, and industrial environments)
  • Backed by 20+ years CAN expertise

USB to CAN Bus

CPC-USB/ARM7

The CPC-USB/ARM7 provides a USB to CAN Bus interface in a robust metal housing:

  • USB Host PC Interface
  • Cortex M3 ARM7 micro-controller
  • Support for Windows & Linux with CPC Software Interface Framework. proCANtool CAN-Monitor for Windows included with purchase.
  • FCC Class A Verified (use restricted to commercial, business, and industrial environments)
  • Backed by 20+ years CAN expertise

USB to CAN Bus (for Embedded Applications)

CPC-USB/embedded

The CPC-USB/embedded provides a USB to CAN Bus interface on a small, unmounted PCB. It is ideally suited for space constrained applications, and as an internal USB interface for embedded / industrial PCs:

  • USB Host PC Interface
