Designed for wireless connectivity to a vehicle CANbus.
Axiomatic Technologies Corp. has introduced a rugged, adaptable CAN to WiFi converter for secure and reliable wireless connectivity to a vehicle CANbus.
The AX141200 CAN to WiFi converter is used for wireless CANbus monitoring in off-highway, mining, industrial machines and control systems. It offers remote bi-directional CANbus accessibility over a wireless link, and acts as a wireless bridge, said the company.
The module has one CAN port for a high data transfer rate and with a configurable baud rate. It is a rugged controller with an integrated TE Deutsch 8-pin connector and an IP67 protection rating. The converter is powered from a 12 V or 24 Vdc battery. It has a status LED indicator.
CAN frames are converted into UDP or TCP IP datagrams, and vice versa, sending them over a wireless network using a WiFi protocol. The AX141200 Wi-Fi connection is provided by an internal antenna. The WiFi port can work in a station or access point mode in 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequency range.
Based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, Axiomatic engineers and manufactures a wide range of rugged electronics for machines which interfaces to provide end-users and OEMs with a solution to integrate legacy or standard systems.
The company said its controls feature compliance for harsh machine environments with surges, load dump, power transients as well as exposure to dust, water, high humidity and vibrations.
