Industrial 4-port CAN bus switch with firmware upgrade

ICP Electronics Australia has released ICP DAS’s I-2534 Industrial 4-port CAN bus Switch and I-5534-M Robust 4-port Industrial CAN bus Switch in Metal Casing with Firmware and Utility Upgrade.

The I-2534 and I-5534-M are both CAN switches used to establish a connection among four CAN bus sub-networks. 

In order to solve the problem of the star topology within the CAN network, the I-2534 and I-5534-M are specially designed for integrating four CAN networks and solving the problems when using star topology. 

They are not only used as a CAN bridge, but also have more powerful features.

(1)    Extend CAN bus working distance.
(2)    Connect to four CAN sub-networks with different baud rate.
(3)    Support Star or Tree topology.
(4)    I-5534-M provides higher stability and reliability in harsh environments.

The upgraded firmware keeps the original features like the user-defined CAN baud rate, CAN bus message acceptance filter and routing path configuration. In addition, the upgraded firmware features the CAN-ID mapping mechanism to modify the received CAN-ID before process forwarding. Users could configure the CAN-ID mapping table. 

When the I-2534 and I-5534-M receives the specific CAN-ID, the CAN-ID will change to the corresponding CAN-ID by the mapping table before it is transmitted to another CAN ports. 

When CAN devices transmit the same CAN messages, the I-2534 or I-5534-M could change to another CAN-ID by the CAN-ID mapping mechanism.
