Programmable CAN bus gateway device
We all played with building blocks when we were young. Through different combinations, a limited number of building blocks can be combined into several different overall forms. In fact, after we grow up, we can often see free combination scenes, some are combinations of hardware devices, and some are combinations of software programs. So, is there anything that combines the above two combinations? Of course there is a PLC with expandable IO modules!
Generally speaking, PLC is a programmable logic controller. It is a device that can change its control content through programming software. Its software program types include ladder diagrams, function blocks, and so on. Today, when the demand for automated production is becoming more and more intense, the role of PLC is becoming more prominent. However, PLC is not perfect. It also has its own limitations. For example, the number of IO interfaces is generally fixed. If the device you buy has several IO interfaces, then you can only use a few, which is flexible. Very bad, if you encounter a situation that requires multiple IOs, and your PLC happens to be insufficient, it can be said to be very embarrassing. It is precisely because of this in mind that Shenyang Guangcheng Technology has developed a PLC device that can expand the IO interface, namely the GCAN-PLC series. It can currently load up to 32 various types of IO function chips at the same time, with 256 IO interfaces For use, its communication interface types include CAN interface, Ethernet interface and serial interface, which can basically meet all your communication needs. What, your communication method is Bluetooth? That's okay. GCAN-PLC also supports extended communication methods. Just like installing IO function chips, just install a communication chip. Isn't it very considerate? However, having said so much, we are still talking about PLC, which is originally called programmable controller, and it is only natural to be able to program. So, can other types of CAN devices take the advantages of PLC and change their functions at any time through programming software? Originally there was no, but now, it is coming, Shenyang Guangcheng Technology GCAN-410 programmable CAN bus gateway device, to meet your illusion about the programmable CAN data conversion device. Below, we briefly introduce it.
Shenyang Guangcheng Technology GCAN-410 programmable CAN bus gateway device is a programmable bus gateway/converter. The device integrates 1 CAN bus interface, 1 Ethernet bus interface, 1 RS485 bus interface, and 1 RS232 bus interface. Before actual use, users need to write an application program for the device through openPCS software to achieve Mutual conversion of data between different bus interfaces.
Shenyang Guangcheng Technology GCAN-410 programmable CAN bus gateway device supports a variety of standard communication protocols, such as CANopen, SAE J1939, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, etc. The user can directly select the function block of the corresponding protocol to load in actual use. Use and the addition of function blocks make user programming easier. Users only need to understand the basic PLC programming instructions and the characteristics and parameters of the corresponding bus protocol to complete the programming.
Shenyang Guangcheng Technology GCAN-410 programmable CAN bus gateway device can be programmed with OpenPCS software. The software supports five standard PLC programming languages specified in the IEC-61131-3 standard, such as: SFC (Sequential Function Chart) , LD (ladder diagram), FBD (function block), ST (structured text), IL (instruction list), which makes the program portability and reusability strong, and the software also has a variety of debugging functions ( Such as power failure, single step, monitoring, etc.), which makes debugging programs more convenient.
