CAN-over-IP Gateway With JSON Interface For Integration Into IoT Environments

Posted by Industry News on

PCAN-Gateway product family from Peak-System

The PCAN-Gateway product family by Peak-System enables the connection of CAN Bus networks via Ethernet  IP connection. The CAN Bus messages are packed as data in TCP or UDP messages and transmitted via IP network, allowing CAN Bus systems to be integrated into IoT environments plus having an alternative access point for remote diagnostics. 

The configuration of the PCAN-Gateways is accomplished via online connection (i.e. a website), which may be time-consuming for multiple devices. However, the JSON interface, released in combination with the software package version 2.7, offers developers an alternative way to access the devices. A JSON-formatted request is sent to the PCAN-Gateway as a GET parameter of a URL.

Requested information or the status of a configuration request is returned as a JSON-formatted response. This makes it possible to develop software for automated monitoring and configuration of all PCAN-Gateways connected to the IP network. The software package 2.7 is now available free-of-charge. The JSON interface and its use is described in detail in the PCAN-Gateway developer documentation.
