We like to introduce our new Ethernet / CANopen Gateway

(PresseBox) (Halle, ) The new Ethernet / CANopen gateway CI-ARM9 is a CAN to 10BaseT Gateway. Computer networks worldwide are using Ethernet with the TCP/IP protocol family. With the EtherCAN gateway you are connecting the TCP/IP world with your CAN based control network. Available is a CAN-Layer-2 and CANopen Server software. The hardware base for the EtherCAN CI-ARM9 forms a powerful Freescale ARM9 CPU with an integrated Ethernet controller and dual FlexCAN interfaces.

On the EtherCAN CI-ARM9 an Embedded LINUX™ operating system is installed. Therefore a lot of services like FTP, Telnet or an integrated web server but also a RS-232 interface are available to run user-specific applications.

For own developments a Developer Package is available. It includes besides tools to generate the FLASH image, a cross compiler and necessary libraries. Further examples in C, Java or Tcl can be downloaded from our web site www.port.de.

The usage of the CANopen Library is possible to create CANopen applications. Of course ready-to-run programs are available.

For the usage as gateway to CANopen based systems the CANopen Server m4d running on the EtherCAN realizes the complete handling of the CANopen protocol. It runs as a Network Management Master, can configure LSS slaves with the LSS commands and supports the following CANopen services:

- NMT Services
- Heartbeat, Node Guarding
- SDO Services including Domain Transfers
- PDO Consumer and Producer
- SYNC Producer
- Emergency Consumer

Cyclic services like SYNC of Heartbeat are handled autonomously.

As protocol between a client application and the CANopen Server the CiA specification DSP309-3 is used at the Ethernet side.

For a comfortable handling of the CANopen Server the platform independent and graphical application CANopen Device Monitor can be used.

For CAN based systems without High-Layer protocol the EtherCAN CI-ARM9 provides the CAN server horch that can send all received data via a TCP/IP port to other applications.

Sending CAN message via the CAN server is possible, too. In the easiest case the server is used as a CAN analyzer via the Ethernet. The CAN Analyzer CAN-REport can be used for this.

If you like to test our product? Do you have a special application - we will find a solution for you. The plattform is able for any OEM solutions.
