DIN Rail Ethernet to CAN/CAN FD Interface Supports SAE J1939, NMEA 2000, CANopen
Kvaser introduced their DIN Rail SE410S-X10 Ethernet-to-CAN(FD) multi-channel interface with additional I/O support through add-on modules.
Kvaser supplies advanced CAN Bus solutions to engineers designing and deploying systems in areas as wide-ranging as trucks and buses, petrol-driven and electric cars, industrial automation, avionics, construction equipment, building automation, domestic appliances, marine, medical, military, railway, telecoms, textiles and more.
The Kvaser DIN Rail SE410S-X10 is an Ethernet-to-CAN (FD) interface with four galvanically-isolated CAN (FD) channels, supporting I/Os via add-on modules and a 16-GiB ﬂash storage. The device acts as a managing controller for the add-ons. In addition, it supports CAN-Bus-based higher-layer protocols such as SAE J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000, and DeviceNet. The enclosure comes with a mounting clip for DIN-rail installation without tools.
The communication between the I/O modules and the device uses an optical connection without the need for cables. The Kvaser’s CANlib software or the Kvaser T programming language controls the I/O modules over Ethernet, allowing user-developed programs to be created and stored. The software operates locally on the device without requiring a PC connection. A gateway functionality can be programmed as well.
The capacity of host user-developed programs for applications such as node simulation, watchdog timer functions, or CAN-to-CAN-FD translation make vehicle test cells, dynamometers (and many more) suitable environments for the SE410S-X10.
Teensy 4.1 Triple CAN Bus Board with 240x240 LCD and Ethernet
The Teensy 4.1 board comes with triple CAN connections, two CAN 2.0B and one CAN FD, and an Ethernet magjack. It can be powered by an external +12 VDC with reverse voltage protection. Included is also a 240x240 wide-angle IPS TFT LCD display.
The Teensy 4.1 is an Arduino-compatible board with an Arm Cortex-M7 microcontroller running at 600 MHz. The board is compatible with the Arduino IDE and the Arduino library. In most cases, code written for another Arduino board works with minimum changes on a Teensy. As the name implies, the board is tiny. For example, the current form factor is only about 18 by 36 millimeters. However, do not let the size mislead you; these boards pack a ton of functionality.
