Smart LUA script processing, bi-directional MQTT messaging and new hardware added to the Ixxat CAN@net NT and CANbridge series(PresseBox) (Karlsruhe, )
The Ixxat® CAN@net NT and CANbridge NT product families enable smart and seamless CAN-based networking on-site and remotely. The CANbridge NT enables easy coupling of up to four CAN and CAN-FD networks using filter and translation rules. Network wiring can be simplified through tree and star topologies, and all connected segments are protected thanks to electrically isolated bus interfaces. All CAN@net NT products come with an additional Ethernet interface, allowing very distributed networks by coupling up to four CAN@net NT devices using Ethernet. CAN@net NT products also allow remote access to CAN and CANFD networks via Ethernet and PC.
New SP2 functionality powers up the CAN@net NT and CANbridge series
The new Service Pack 2 introduces enhanced "Action Rules" programming for flexible definition and execution of events and actions for all CAN@net NT and CANbridge products. Based on LUA script processing, these user-defined actions can be triggered upon e.g. pre-defined message content or status information.
The Ethernet interface of the CAN@net NT series enables direct cloud connectivity via the implemented MQTT protocol. In SP2, bi-directional MQTT messaging is introduced. In addition to transmitting e.g. alarms and status information to mobile devices, messages can now also be received from the cloud for LUA scriptbased pre-processing, plausibility checking and transmission to the CAN bus.
CAN@net NT 100 – new connectivity
HMS also introduces a new hardware – CAN@net NT 100 – that offers a D-Sub 9 network connector for CAN/CAN-FD network connectivity, complementing the existing CAN@net NT 200 and 420 products that both feature screw terminals. The CAN@net NT 100 is a direct successor of the older CAN@net II which means that existing customers can exchange installed CAN@net II units in existing systems with CANnet 100 NT and benefit from all the new functionality provided in SP2.
