HMS announces IXXAT [email protected] NT 200 CAN-to-Ethernet gateway

The IXXAT [email protected] NT 200 is a CAN-to-Ethernet gateway which allows users to connect CAN and Ethernet. Thanks to its two operating modes, [email protected] NT can be used as CAN-Ethernet-CAN bridge and as CAN-to-Ethernet gateway. Equipped with two CAN interfaces, it supports a wide range of use cases compared to the [email protected] II.The [email protected] NT (now in new black housing) allows users to connect CAN and Ethernet

One of the key features of the [email protected] NT - which is especially useful in e.g. building automation - is the ability to separate CAN networks that are distributed over large areas. [email protected] NT couples the CAN networks via a backbone Ethernet system, allowing existing infrastructures to be used. This segmentation also increases the reliability and stability of the overall system.

Designed for high performance in harsh environments, another common application for [email protected] NT is remote access to CAN networks via Ethernet - e.g. in wind power plants or in the manufacturing sector. [email protected] NT enables service staff to get access to plants all around the world, simplifying control, service and monitoring of CAN-based plants, reducing costs and downtime.

Besides the bridge operation, linking two CAN networks via Ethernet, the [email protected] NT 200 can also be directly accessed from Windows, Linux, VxWorks or QNX based systems as well as from embedded systems, by using a simple ASCII protocol over a standard TCP/IP socket.

[email protected] NT supports all CAN baud rates from 5 kBit/s to 1 Mbit/s, as well as simultaneous use of 11 and 29 bit identifiers. The TCP/IP-based protocol ensures that no CAN messages are lost when transmitted over Ethernet. The device configuration is made by using a Windows configuration tool.

More variants of the [email protected] NT, with PC interface operation mode, 4 CAN channels and CAN FD support will soon be released.
