CAN serial interface CSI-01C
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The module CSI-01 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. In this case a special programming depending on the protocol of the module takes place.
