Universal CAN Converter in DIN Rail Plastic Casing
The PCAN-Router DR has two High-speed CAN channels. Their bit rate is adjusted with a rotary switch on the device front. The module forwards the message traffic bi-directionally 1:1 between both connected CAN buses.
The ports of the device are isolated against each other and against the power supply with at least 500 V. Furthermore, CAN 1 has a separation voltage of up to 5 kV conforming with IEC 60601-1. With its DIN rail casing and the support of the extended temperature range, the module is suitable for use in an industrial environment.
Just like the PCAN-Router in the aluminum casing, the PCAN-Router DR can be freely programmed. A corresponding development package is included in the scope of supply.
The transfer of the firmware via CAN requires a PEAK CAN interface.
