CAN@net II/VCI Active Ethernet interface 1 x CAN (High-Speed)

The CAN@net II allows simple, flexible access from a PC to CAN systems via Ethernet. Due to its ability to support the TCP/IP protocol, the CAN@net II allows the worldwide direct connection to a PC, implementation in an LAN, or, communication with the gateway via the Internet.

With the VCI CAN driver, included in the delivery, the CAN@net II can be operated in the same way as all IXXAT CAN PC interface boards. Therefore, all VCI-based CAN-programs and tools can be run with the CAN@net II. The VCI CAN driver is also capable of communicating via a PC with up to 128 CAN@net II devices simultaneously.

In addition to the CAN@net II/VCI, IXXAT also offers the CAN@net II/Generic, which can be addressed via a standard TCP/IP socket or used as CAN-Ethernet-CAN bridge (see also CAN@net II/Generic in the section “CAN gateways/bridges”).

Features and benefits

  • Easy CAN access over large distances
  • Common driver interface for easy exchange of the PC interface type
  • Also abailable as gateway/bridge device
