We like to introduce our new Ethernet / CANopen Gateway
(PresseBox) (Halle, )The new Ethernet / CANopen gateway CI-ARM9 is a CAN to 10BaseT Gateway. Computer networks worldwide are using Ethernet with the TCP/IP protocol family. With the EtherCAN gateway you are connecting the TCP/IP world with your CAN based control network. Available is a CAN-Layer-2 and CANopen Server software. The hardware base for the EtherCAN CI-ARM9 forms a powerful Freescale ARM9 CPU with an integrated Ethernet controller and dual FlexCAN interfaces.
On the EtherCAN CI-ARM9 an Embedded LINUX™ operating system is installed. Therefore a lot of services like FTP, Telnet or an integrated web server but also a RS-232 interface are available to run user-specific applications.
For own developments a Developer Package is available. It includes besides tools to generate the FLASH image, a cross compiler and necessary libraries. Further examples in C, Java or Tcl can be downloaded from our web site www.port.de.
The usage of the CANopen Library is possible to create CANopen applications. Of course ready-to-run programs are available.
For the usage as gateway to CANopen based systems the CANopen Server m4d running on the EtherCAN realizes the complete handling of the CANopen protocol. It runs as a Network Management Master, can configure LSS slaves with the LSS commands and supports the following CANopen services:
