PN/CAN-Gateway, PROFINET/CANopenŽ, PROFINET/CAN Layer 2
With the new PN/CAN gateway, the connection of CANopen® devices to PROFINET is easy and straightforward. The range of products currently includes versions for the CANopen® Master and Layer 2 protocols, and a product version with the CANopen® Slave protocol is in the pipeline.
The CANopen® PN/CAN gateway represents a full-fledged CANopen® Master. As the master, it supports gateway network management, SYNC telegrams and node guarding/heartbeat for monitoring the participants and LSS services. Up to 16 PDOs can be configured for each CANopen® Slave. It is also possible to configure the CANopen® participants using SDO telegrams and to manage emergency messages.
With the Layer 2 PN/CAN gateway, CAN devices can be connected using proprietary CAN protocols, including devices with the SAE J1939 protocol, among others.
On the PROFINET network, the PN/CAN gateway is a PROFINET IO device that supports transfer rates up to 100 Mbps full duplex, and on the CAN bus up to 1 Mbps is supported.
The I/O data of the CAN participants is transparently displayed in a freely configurable manner on the PROFINET network and can thus be processed directly in the PLC. The PN/CAN gateway is integrated with a GSDML file in the hardware configurator and can be fully configured there. No other software tools for configuration or handling blocks for programming are necessary, making gateway use straightforward.
The features of the PN/CAN gateway are rounded out by MRP (media redundancy), as well as extensive diagnostic functions and an interface for online diagnostics.
