The IoT (Internet of Things) has been a much discussed topic in recent years. Using the IoT concept, it is easy to integrate the environment of heterogeneous network and let all of the things into be digitised making life more convenient. In order to provide additional access to IoT applications related to industry based on the CAN bus, ICPDAS has developed a new Ethernet product, the ECAN-240.

The ICP DAS ECAN-240 module is a Modbus TCP to 2-port CAN Bus Gateway. As its functionality, that provides communications via the Ethernet based on the Modbus TCP industrial protocol, which means that the module can be easily integrated with an industrial network. The ECAN-240 module includes two CAN bus interfaces, meaning that more various CAN applications can be supported, such as a CAN bridge or a CAN message router. The CAN message router function means that the ICP DAS ECAN-240 module can be used to connect to four different CAN networks, ensuring they can communicate with each other.
