CAN-bus Gateways – Control Technologies Skip to content

CAN-bus Gateways

CAN-bus Gateways act as intelligent bridges between different CAN networks or between CAN and other communication protocols. These gateways play a pivotal role in ensuring interoperability, enabling devices and systems with distinct communication protocols to communicate seamlessly. They function as data translators, breaking down barriers and creating a unified communication environment.

Applications in Automotive Systems

In the automotive industry, where various ECUs communicate using CAN, CAN-bus Gateways enable integration with other communication protocols, such as LIN (Local Interconnect Network) or Ethernet. This facilitates the exchange of data between different vehicle subsystems, enhancing overall functionality and efficiency.

Industrial Automation and IoT

In industrial settings, CAN-bus Gateways play a crucial role in integrating different automation devices that may utilise disparate protocols. This becomes especially vital as industries embrace the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 initiatives. Gateways allow for the seamless flow of data between sensors, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and other devices, contributing to improved operational efficiency and real-time monitoring.
