RS232-CAN converter
With the CAN-GW100/RS232, devices with a serial RS232 port can be connected to the CAN bus. Two modes are available for use in CAN and CANopen networks.

Supported CANopen Features

  • 1 x server SDO expedited, non-expedited
  • 1 x TX PDO and 1 x RX PDO (static mapping)
  • Emergency message, heartbeat producer, NMT slave

How it works

In the CAN mode (layer 2), the received CAN data is transmitted transparently to the RS232 interface. Data sent by means of RS232 is packed in CAN telegrams. One configurable identifier is available for each transmission and reception.

In CANopen mode the CAN-GW100/RS232 works as a CANopen subscriber, where the serial data is saved as a bytestream object in the manufacturer-specific object dictionary range.
