The module CAN-DP can link any Profibus-
DP master to a CAN network. The DP/CAN
gateway operates as a slave-I/O component
with a total of maximum 300 bytes process
data (up to 244 bytes input and 56 bytes
output or up to 244 bytes output and 56
bytes input data) on the DP-bus.
With the CAN gateway you can couple CAN
modules with CANopen or layer-2
implementation to e.g. a SIMATIC-S7.
The number of CAN nodes is not limited by
The ISO 11898-compatible CAN interface
allows a maximum data-transfer rate of 1
Mbit/s. The Profibus-DP-Slave interface
automatically recognizes all usual bit rates
up to 12 Mbit/s.
The DP as well as the CAN interface are
The module can be configured via
PROFIBUS configuration tool, e.g. the PLC
