CAN to WLAN Gateway facilitates testing

January 28, 2014 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
During the test phase of a new car or an industrial installation it can be necessary to connect data acquisition systems and test data generators to the internal CAN bus of the vehicle or automation equipment. PEAK System's PCAN Wireless Gateways bridges the gap between these worlds by connecting of CAN busses to a WLAN.

The gateway wraps CAN frames into TCP or UDP message packages and forwards them across the IP network. Configuration of the devices is provided by a web interface. It provides two High-speed CAN channels with a bit rate of up to 1 Mbit/s. The WLAN interface supports IEEE 802.11 b/g and establishes its connection via an internal chip antenna. Thanks to its extended operating temperature range of -40 to 85°C the PCAN-Wireless Gateway is suitable for use in industrial and automotive environments.
