April 23, 2019 - Adding to the existing Ixxat line of CAN bridges and gateways, HMS Networks introduced four Ixxat CAN FD repeaters, all supporting both the new CAN FD standard as well as traditional CAN.
With the Ixxat CAN FD repeaters, HMS enables networking in existing CAN systems as well as in CAN FD-based systems.
The repeaters enable CAN FD and CAN components to be networked using tree and star topologies, as well as allowing implementation of drop lines. No configuration is required in the process.
The Ixxat CAN FD repeaters are available with two and four channels for copper-wired networking (versions CAN-CR100 and CAN-CR300) and for copper and fiber-optic connectivity (CAN-CR110/FO). All repeaters have a galvanic isolation of 1 kV, except for the CAN-CR120/HV version which withstands up to 3 kV.
With the fiber optic version, it is possible to bridge distances with high electromagnetic interferences or to design applications with high demands on galvanic isolation.
The repeaters come with plastic housings for DIN rail mounting, and the CAN connection is done via screw terminals.
