Automotive Ethernet to CAN Bus Converter For Mobile SAE J1939, ISOBUS Applications

Posted by Industry News on

Axiomatic Technologies introduced their AX141530, a CAN-to-Ethernet protocol converter to support automation for mobile applications.

The module translates CAN Bus 29-bit extended data frame to Automotive Ethernet (100 Mbit/s) and vice versa. It comes with Power, Link, and Speed LED indicators and an IP67 rating, making the product fitting for harsh environments, such as vibration and water resistance. The converter supports a 12 to 24 VDC input power range for operation per battery.

It provides one CAN Bus and one Ethernet port through two M12 connectors and tolerates surge, reverse polarity, input overvoltage, and input under-voltage protection. The Automotive Ethernet fieldbus supports bit rates of 100 Mbps and the CAN Bus supports baud rates up to 1 Mbps.

Commander and responder functionally are either factory set or can be configured. The data frames are neither stored nor modified during the transition. Status LEDs provide information on connection links and communication. SAE J1939 is available as a configuration port.

Axiomatic also offers CAN-to-Wifi and CAN-to-Bluetooth converters for machine automation and utilization on off-road machinery.

Low-Cost CAN Bus Monitor For Developing And Debugging High-Speed CAN Networks

Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial network technology that was originally designed for the automotive industry, especially for European cars, but has also become a popular bus in industrial automation as well as other applications. The CAN Bus is primarily used in embedded systems, and as its name implies, is a network technology that provides [...]

Controller Area Network (CAN Bus) Tutorial - Higher Layer Protocols

The following is an excerpt from  A Comprehensible Controller Area Network by Wilfried Voss. Even though highly influential in automobiles and small applications, the CAN Bus technology alone is not suitable for machine automation since its communication between devices is limited to only 8 bytes. Consequently, higher layer protocols such as CANopen for machine control, DeviceNet for factory [...]

The following is an excerpt from  A Comprehensible Controller Area Network by Wilfried Voss. As demonstrated in the image below, the ISO/OSI Reference Model specifies seven levels beginning with the physical connection to the actual user application, i.e., the Application Layer. The standard CAN implementation bypasses the connection between the Data Link Layer and the Application Layer to [...]

SAE J1939 vs. CAN Bus - Physical Layer And Higher Layer Protocol (HLP)

To answer the fundamental question upfront: SAE J1939 is a higher-layer protocol (i.e., an add-on software) that uses the CAN Bus technology as a physical layer. In addition to the standard CAN Bus capabilities, SAE J1939 supports node addresses, and it can deliver data frames longer than 8 bytes (in fact, up to 1785 bytes). However, [...]
