Axiomatic Technologies announced the release of their AX141810, a Modbus router with CAN Bus and Ethernet connectivity. It is available in two variants. The protocol converter is user-configurable via a web browser, featuring data exchange between a CAN Bus network, specifically SAE J1939, EIA-485, and Ethernet.
The unit integrates one isolated extended frame format CAN Bus interface, one isolated EIA-485 (Modbus RTU), and one Ethernet port (Modbus TCP). The product comes in two variants, the AX141810, a bidirectional Modbus (RTU+TCP/IP) to SAE J1939 converter, and the AX141830, an SAE J1939 to Modbus (RTU+TCP/IP) direction.
The AX141810 operates in a power supply range of 9 VDC to 36 VDC (12 VDC, 24 VDC nominal), with an integrated TE Deutsch 12-pin connector. It offers surge, over-voltage, and reverse polarity protection. In addition, the product provides an IP67 rating, allowing it to withstand harsh environments.
Axiomatic's protocol converters, routers, and CAN Bus gateways provide end-users and OEMs a solution for integrating their legacy or established systems. Axiomatic products support one-to-one conversion of TTL, EIA-232, EIA-485, two CAN Bus networks, and Ethernet (proprietary protocols are supported on request).

SAE J1939 to RS232 & USB Gateway
The JCOM.J1939.SER gateway is a high-performance, low-latency, serial vehicle network adapter for SAE J1939 applications. It allows any host device with an RS232 or USB port to monitor SAE J1939 data traffic and communicate with the SAE J1939 vehicle network. An SAE J1939 cable, suited for a 9-pin Deutsch connection, is available as an option.
The gateway supports the full SAE J1939 protocol according to J1939/81 Network Management (Address Claiming) and J1939/21 Transport Protocol (TP). In addition, an extensive programming interface supports Windows and Linux/Ubuntu applications, including complete C/C++/C# source code for short time-to-market developments.

The STRIDE MQTT gateway by AutomationDirect connects industrial Modbus devices to an MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) cloud-based data logging system. MQTT is a machine-to-machine IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) connectivity protocol that renders low power usage, data packets, and distribution of information to single or multiple receivers.The STRIDE MQTT gateway implements a hardware setup to add Modbus RTU/TCP [...]
Modbus is a serial communications protocol developed by Modicon (now Schneider Electric) in 1979 for the use with its PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers). Modbus has become a popular standard communication protocol, and these days is widely accessible for the means of connecting industrial electronic devices. The principal reasons for the use of Modbus for industrial [...]
The following is part of A Comprehensible Guide to Industrial Ethernet by Wilfried Voss.Given all the technical aspects of Ethernet TCP/IP, including its strengths and weaknesses, that have been presented thus far, the critical engineering mind may challenge the need for sophisticated Industrial Ethernet protocols.After all, all Industrial Ethernet protocols benefit from the vast speed of Ethernet TCP/IP. Random delays [...]
