LCL-01 Universal Gateway
With the integrated interfaces LAN, USB, CAN, LIN and RS485 the Universal Gateway LCL-01-Lift is the ideal hardware for use in elevators and escalators. For this purpose it provides multiple protocols and applications.
The LCL-01 Universal Gateway can be used for various tasks:
- As a repeater to connect two CAN networks. All CAN telegrams will be transmitted into other networks without changes. Both CAN networks will be treated like a single network.
- As a bridge to connect two CAN networks with the profile CiA-417 (e.g. for the connection of a shaft bus to a group bus). Each CAN network will be treated as a unique network. Equal node numbers can be used once in a network. At the exchange of CAN telegrams between the networks they will be changed according to their function.
- As a gateway to connect modules to the CAN bus that only possess a UART port, a RS232, RS485, USB or Ethernet. In this case a special programming depending on the protocol of the module takes place.
