The Gateway mode makes it possible to use the device application as
a universal CAN / Ethernet coupler. Thereby, the Gateway is typically
used at a PC as external CAN interface. Hence, it enables easy and
flexible access to CAN systems via LAN or Internet. The scope of
delivery includes drivers that facilitate using the CAN-Ethernet Gateway
as PC interface for all CAN and CANopen software tools sold by SYS TEC.
The driver API is documented in detail and supports the integration of
the Gateway into own user applications. From the Host application, the
message transfer with the CAN network takes place via socket-based TCP
or UDP communication.
The Bridge mode allows for transparent coupling of CAN networks via
LAN or Internet. By filtering messages, on the one hand it is possible
to limit the data volume to be transferred, and on the other hand it is
possible to systematically control the data exchange between subnets.
For example, for the coupling of CANopen networks it is feasible to only
exchange PDOs and to exclude all other message types from being
