Active Ethernet interface

1 x CAN (High-Speed)

The CAN@net II allows simple, flexible access from a PC to CAN systems via Ethernet. Due to its ability to support the TCP/IP protocol, the CAN@net II allows the  worldwide direct connection to a PC, implementation in an LAN, or, communication with the gateway via the Internet.

This product is not recommended for new developments. For new developments we recommend to use the successor product Ixxat CAN@net NT 100/200/420.


Features and benefits

  • Easy CAN access over large distances
  • Common driver interface for easy exchange of the PC interface type
  • Also available as gateway/bridge device

How it works

With the VCI CAN driver, included in the delivery, the CAN@net II can be operated in the same way as all Ixxat CAN PC interface boards. Therefore, all VCI-based CAN-programs and tools can be run with the CAN@net II. The VCI CAN driver is also capable of communicating via a PC with up to 128 CAN@net II devices simultaneously.

In addition to the CAN@net II/VCI, Ixxat also offers the CAN@net II/Generic, which can be addressed via a standard TCP/IP socket or used as CAN-Ethernet-CAN bridge (see also CAN@net II/Generic in the section “CAN gateways/bridges”).
