Linking CAN busses over IP networks

The PCAN-Gateways allow the connection of CAN busses over IP networks. CAN frames are wrapped in TCP or UDP message packets and then forwarded via the IP network from one device to the other.

The configuration of the PCAN-Gateways is done via a comfortable web interface. Besides providing a variety of status information, the website can directly manage settings for the device itself, communication interfaces, and message routing.
