CAN bus Extenders

WRC-CANX

CAN bus Extenders

WRC-CANX

WRC CAN bus Extenders boost signal levels, allowing longer cable lengths, longer trunk lines, and longer drop lines without sacrificing network speed. CAN bus Extenders permit maximum network speed and throughput on CAN, J1939, or DeviceNet network devices, resulting in better control of the process. In addition extenders require no configuration when used in DeviceNet applications as they are configured for autobaud operation.

Comes with the standard two-year Western Reserve Controls warranty.

Features and Benefits

Key Features:

  • Expands the usable applications for DeviceNet, J1939, SDS, and other CAN V2.0, Part A and Part B compatible CAN bus systems
  • Enables the creation of star, tree and other non-linear network topologies which increases flexibility in system design and reduces installation costs
  • Works with both trunk lines and drop lines
  • Allows operation at higher speeds for specific distances
  • Operates at 9.6K to 1M fixed baud for J1939 or CAN networks
  • Auto-detects baud rate on DeviceNet (125k, 250k, or 500k baud)
  • Isolates the two sections of the CAN bus (copper wire)
  • Extender operation is transparent to Master and Slave devices
  • Powered from the CAN bus network
  • Pluggable 5-pin DeviceNet connections (WRC-CANX-DIN-DN)
  • Sealed NEMA-4X enclosure (WRC-CANX-NEM-DN)
  • Standard round, mini-style connector with male pins for copper cable (WRC-CANX-NEM-DN)
  • Standard CAN chips manage CAN bus error detection and handle message bus arbitration
  • Less than 900 µsec latency
  • Termination resistor built in on the CAN bus interfaces

Series IV Enhancements include:

  • Expanded DIP switch settings allow selection for CAN bus speeds up to 1M baud
  • Made enhancements to allow for adding Custom baud rates in the future
