CAN Bus to Ethernet Gateway Interface


The EtherCAN CI-ARM9/RMD V3.0 is a powerful rail-mounting Ethernet Interface & Gatgeway for CAN bus applications. Powered by a 454 MHz ARM9 processor (Freescale I.MX287) with 2GB eMMC Flash and 128MB DDR RAM this gateway is capable of addressing complex, application specific requirements.

It is suitable for applications where processing of CAN Bus messages in the Ethernet gateway is needed, including, for example, visualization of CAN messages via web server, and complex protocol conversion. The 454MHz Freescale ARM9 CPU provides significant power for such applications. Higher Layer Protocol support is optionally available, including CANopen and multi-protocol stacks, and CANopen to TCP/IP gateway.

The implementation in a small, compact and rail-mountable housing eases the use in electrical cabinets. Additionally the connection of the USB 2.0 full speed host interface with a Bluetooth or WLAN Stick opens up the possibility of wireless data transfer.

It also provides an integrated SD Card slot for bulk exchange of data and logging of CAN messages. Both CAN channels are galvanic separated.
