Stable, Reliable and Widely Applicable

The CANET series product from ZHIYUAN Electronics has been proven to be reliable and stable by stringent verification, and has been widely applied to high-speed railways, metros, medical treatment, aerospace, building security, elevator control, weighing apparatus, etc.. The following figure shows the module specifically provided for the train monitoring by China CNR Corporation.

Support TCP Sever/TCP Client/UDP and topological structure

It supports TCP Sever/TCP Client/UDP operating modes and flexible topological structure. Users can flexibly set relevant configuration parameters using the configuration software. The following figure shows its typical application:

130,000-frame Super Buffer with no Frame Loss

High-performance type with full-load reception capability at any Baud rate, 130,000-frame super buffer with no frame loss as the top priority

The frame traffic of single channel can reach 12000 frames per second.

Highest frame traffic of the high-performance model: the frame traffic of single channel can reach 12000 frames per second (1M Baud rate and standard data frames)

Each CAN channel supports up to 254 connections

TCP supports multiple connections and each CAN channel of the high-performance model supports up to 254 connections, which takes the lead among peers.

Flexible Data Communication Formats

It has flexible data communication formats. Its Socket operation mode supports any type of operating systems. Please see the specifications for details.

High-performance model supports the TCP notice for CAN status

The high-performance model supports the TCP notice for CAN status so that users can monitor CAN-bus communication status in real time. Please see the specifications for details.

2-Channel CAN Interface with 2500VDC Electrical Isolation

2-channel CAN interface with 2500VDC electrical isolation and ±8KV electrostatic discharge

Compliant with CAN2.0B Specification

CAN protocol is fully compliant with CAN2.0B specification and ISO11898-1/2 and compatible with CAN2.0A. Users can choose CANBridge-1054 to support fault-tolerant CAN standard of ISO11898-3.

CAN Baud Rate Can Be Set at Random within 1Mbps

Support Various Development Environments

It has effective and easy secondary development function, and supports various development environments like VC, C#, Labview, LINUX, etc.

Other Features

  • Each CAN interface of the high-performance model supports 6 target IP segments and single- or multi-device communication and meets the need of 6x254 communications at most.
  • Supports protocols including ETHERNET, ARP, IP, ICMP, UDP, DHCP, DNS and TCP.
  • It is compatible with the SOCKET operation mode (TCP Server, TCP Client, UDP, etc.) and the PC communication applications should be written according to the SOCKET specification.
  • Bi-directional and transparent transmission between CAN data and Ethernet data.
  • The high-performance model supports the Ethernet notice for CAN interface fault. PC can monitor the error status of CAN interfaces in real time.
  • Flexible CAN data framing function to meet various packet needs of users.
  • Uses Windows platform configuration software to configure operation parameters.
  • Provides Windows platform configuration software function library including a simple API function library for free to help users develop their own configuration software.
  • Supports local system firmware upgrade.

ZNETCOM configuration software and CANtest testing and analyzing software

1.Use ZNETCOM2.8 or later configuration software versions to search the device for parameter configurations (for example, device IP, operating port, target IP, target port, CAN Baud rate, etc.. See the user manual for the specific configuration);

2.Then run CANTest software and select device, PC operation mode, IP and port to start the CAN converter.

3.Perform automatic reception after startup. A single-frame transmission can be achieved in a basic operation. Users can set continuous storage for long-term testing.;

4.For advanced operations, 100 frames can be predefined; the transmission counts and intervals can also be set.。
