CAN@net II/Generic

CAN-Ethernet gateway and
CAN-Ethernet-CAN bridge

The CAN@net II/Generic enables easy and flexible access to CAN systems via Ethernet. The device provides two operation modes, a bridge mode and a gateway mode.

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 or the CANnector, which offers a wider range of functions.

CAN@net II/Generic

Features and benefits

  • Bridging of large distances and easy system access using Ethernet
  • Filter and conversion functionality
  • Cost savings due to simple wiring

How It Works

CAN-Ethernet Gateway
In the gateway mode the CAN@net II/Generic is connected to a PC or to a controller platform via TCP/IP. The application program on the host communicates via a standard TCP/IP socket and uses a simple ASCII protocol. As CAN-Ethernet Gateway, the CAN@net II/Generic offers simple, flexible access to CAN systems via a LAN or via the Internet.

CAN-Ethernet-CAN Bridge
Using two CAN@net II/Generic, a CAN-Ethernet-CAN bridge can be implemented. This bridge allows the exchange of CAN messages between two CAN systems via TCP/IP where filter tables can be defined.


The configuration of the TCP/IP parameters can be performed using a PC tool with automatic device detection. The configuration of the bridge functionality and the CAN communication is supported by an implemented web-server.
