CAN (Controller Area Network) is a serial bus system especially suited to structure intelligent industry devices networks and build smart automatic control systems. The ICP DAS I-2533 is an intelligent CAN bridge that can be used to establish the connection between two CAN bus systems via fiber optic cable. Similar to the I-2532, the I-2533 can also apply in various CAN-based protocols to convert CAN bus signals to optical signals and reshape the CAN signals. The difference between the ICP DAS I-2532 and I-2533 is the CAN configuration functions and the distance limitation of CAN communication.
The ICP DAS I-2533 offers the functions to configure the CAN baud rate and CAN message filters. These are useful when using the ICP DAS I-2533 to link two CAN networks which may have different baud rates. By using the I-2533, the transmission distance limitation of the CAN bus system will not be reduced because of the CAN baud rate, which means that the total network length can be extended. This feature means that users can develop the applications more powerful and flexible with the ICP DAS I-2533.
