Gateway for LIN, CAN, and RS-232


PCAN-LIN High-speed CAN


PCAN-LIN Low-speed CAN


PCAN-LIN High-speed CAN opto-decoupled



The PCAN-LIN module enables CAN, LIN, and serial participants to communicate. The module is supplied in a plastic casing and includes firmware which enables data to be exchanged between the different bus systems. Various modes can be set up with the aid of configuration software. Then for instance the module acting as the LIN master can request data and route the incoming LIN data to the CAN bus and/or the serial interface. Data can be routed between CAN and LIN with an ID offset.
