CAN Bus To Profinet Gateway Operates As A Profinet IO Device

Posted by Industry News on

CAN Bus to Profinet Gateway by esd electronics

The CAN-PN gateway by esd electronics links any PROFINET-IO controller to a CAN Bus network. The gateway serves as a PROFINET-IO device with a maximum of 256 bytes of input data and 256 bytes of output data on the PROFINET bus.

The CAN-PN connects CAN Bus modules with CANopen (CiA® DS 301) or layer-2 (ISO 11898-1) applications to a Profinet PLC, e.g., a Siemens SIMATIC-S7. There is no limitation of logical CAN Bus nodes.

The CAN Bus high-speed (ISO 11898-2) compatible interface provides a maximum data transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s. The 100 BASE-TX PROFINET port is compatible to IEEE802.3 and operates at 100 Mbit/s. The PROFINET as well as the CAN Bus interface are electrically isolated.

The module can be set up via the PROFINET configuration tool, e.g., the Siemens PLC SIMATIC Manager or the TIA portal, meaning no additional configuration tools are needed.
