The PCAN-Router Pro (IPEH-002212)
The PCAN-Router Pro allows to join the data traffic from four High-speed CAN busses. The behavior of the router is configured via the CAN bus with the provided Windows program PPCAN-Editor. As well as pure forwarding, the CAN data can be processed, manipulated, and for example, filtered in a number of different ways. There are a variety of function blocks and other settings available to the user for configuration setup. Furthermore, there is a virtual fifth CAN channel which is used for recording all data traffic to a CompactFlash card.
As an alternative to the standard firmware which the PCAN-Router Pro is equipped with at delivery, custom firmware based on the ARM microcontroller NXP LPC2294 can be created and implemented. The firmware is created using the included development package with GNU compiler for C and C++ and is then transferred to the module via CAN. Various programming examples facilitate the implementation of own solutions.
CAN transceiver modules in the PCAN-Router Pro allow a flexible adaptation of each CAN channel to the requirements. For example, Low-speed and Single-wire CAN transceivers are also available on request.
The configuration or the transfer of the firmware via CAN requires a PEAK CAN interface.
