CAN Bus Over Ethernet Interface For Internet-of-Things (IoT) Applications

Posted by Industry News on

The Kvaser Ethercan HS is a powerful, real-time Ethernet to CAN interface .

The EtherCAN HS by Kvaser is a real-time Ethernet-to-CAN gateway interface that, when connected over the Internet to an Ethernet-equipped PC, enables remote CAN Bus data access from anywhere in the world. The built-in Power-over-Ethernet eradicates the requirement for a separate power cable when it is not possible to power the device from the CAN Bus network.

Kvaser's EtherCAN product range allows the implementation of Internet-of-Things (IoT) concepts by sending data from any CAN Bus product or system over a corporate network or the Cloud, using the Kvaser CANlib API. Users of the EtherCAN HS can also decide to connect to the device by using the built-in Rest API for web-enabled devices, e.g., smartphones.

Being a programmable interface, the EtherCAN HS is well suited for advanced applications, such as ECU reflashing. For instance, a program could process CAN Bus messages locally, i.e., within the device, eliminating the WiFi or Ethernet latency.


  • High-speed CAN Bus connection (compliant with ISO 11898-2), up to 1 Mbit/s.
  • Networked CAN Bus interface with Kvaser t programmability.
  • Supports Kvaser REST API, enabling CAN Bus data exchange with a variety of web-enabled devices.
  • Time stamp accuracy of 25 µs.
  • Ethernet connection has auto-MDIX, so it automatically detects and adjusts for the Ethernet cable being used.
  • Built-in Power over Ethernet (PoE) - receives data and power over the Ethernet cable.
  • Also receives power over CAN Bus so the Ethercan can be powered through devices such as the Kvaser DB9-Power Inlet.
  • Small, lightweight plastic housing with galvanic isolation.
  • Fully compatible with SAE J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000R and DeviceNet.
  • Includes Ethercan Factory Reset Device. This device provides the ability to reset the Ethercan's IP address to factory defaults at the push of a button.
