CAN in industrial automation
The multi-layer structure of Controller Area
Network (CAN) allows any station on a serial
bus to communicate with any other station. There
are also benefits in central control and self-diagnosis
and correction of transmission errors.
A number of CAN-based higher level protocols
have been developed for use in industrial automation
CAN Application Layer (CAL), CAN Kingdom, CAN-open,
DeviceNet and Smart Distributed System are just
a few of these variations.
CAN isolator boosts signal,
increases number of nodes.
- Extend the node capacity of your CAN
- Optical isolation to 2000 VDC. Stops
surges and spikes
- DIN rail mount
- Terminal block connections
Optical isolation stops surges Model CANOP
extends the node capacity of your CAN systems
and protects your CAN network from component
killing surges and transients. Model CANOP is
an optically isolated CAN repeater that provides
2000 VDC of optical isolation, allowing you
to separate and protect critical segments of
your system from the rest of the CAN network.
Send CAN signals over fiber for noise resistance
- Convert CAN signals to fiber and fiber
- Fiber is naturally resistant to surges,
spikes and electrical noise
- DIN rail mount
- Terminal block connections for copper
- ST connectors for fiber
Fiber optic cable offers natural resistance
to EMI/RFI noise and surges that commonly interfere
with electrical networks on factory floors and
in industrial environments. Model CANFB converts
CAN signals from copper to fiber and from fiber
to copper. To connect two CAN devices with fiber
optic cable, two Model CANFB converters are
required. Copper connections are terminal block.
Fiber connectors are standard ST connectors.
