The CAN-EtherCAT module links any EtherCAT network to a CAN network. The gateway operates as an EtherCAT slave with a maximum of 8 Kbytes input or output data on the EtherCAT bus.
With the CAN gateway you can connect CAN modules with CANopen (CiA DS 301) or layer-2 (ISO 11898-1) implementation to a real-time EtherCAT network.
The number of CAN nodes is not limited by the gateway. The module can also be configured as Ethernet switch port using the EoE protocol
The CAN high speed (ISO 11898-2) compatible interface allows a maximum data-transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s.
The 100BASE-TX EtherCAT interface is compatible to IEEE 802.3 and runs with 100 Mbit/s.
The EtherCAT as well as the CAN interface are electrically isolated.
Configuration is done through EtherCAT master, web interface or USB.
