CAN2IoT - CAN Bus, SAE J1939, NMEA 2000 to UART, Bluetooth, BLE, WiFi Module
|Expected release date is Oct 21st 2022|
The CAN2IoT Module acts as a bi-directional gateway between CAN Bus protocols (Classical CAN, CAN-FD, SAE J1939, NMEA2000) and IoT wireless connections, such as Bluetooth, BLE, and WIFI. Its functionality is user-programmable (CAN Baud Rate, Filtering Message IDs, and more), resulting in maximum flexibility.
The module is available as an off-the-shelf gateway product (see firmware features below) but is also suitable for customizations and end-user development.
Please be aware that the CAN2IoT module is a brand-new product. Currently, we primarily offer SAE J1939, but we are also in the process to add features to support other protocols. The priorities for the implementation of Classical CAN, CAN FD, and NMEA 2000 will change according to market research and customer feedback.

CAN2IoT Firmware Features
The SAE J1939 functionality is based on current veteran products, such as:
- SAE J1939 ECU Simulator Board with USB Port…
- SAE J1939 Starter Kit and Network Simulator…
- SAE J1939 to RS232 & USB Gateway…
- SAE J1939 - GPS Module…
We created the CAN2IoT module as part of a new business strategy and managed to port the existing firmware, e.g., the full functionality, to the new hardware. In a next step, we added Bluetooth communication to the device. At the time of this writing, we have begun adding BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) as part of a customer project. The next logical step is to extend the SAE J1939 protocol features to include the NMEA 2000 Fast Packet, which opens the NMEA 2000 market for us.
The following features have been tested successfully and are available:
- SAE J1939 to UART
- SAE J1939 to BT
The following features are in preparation. Their development is primarily driven by customer requests but also market research.
- SAE J1939 to BLE/WiFi
- SAE J1939-22 (CAN-FD) to BT/BLE/WiFi
- NMEA 2000 to BT/BLE/WiFi
- Classical CAN to BT/BLE/WiFi
- CAN-FD to BT/BLE/WiFi
