The galvanic decoupling CAN-Repeater CRepOpto/M12 transmits and amplifies CAN-signals in a protocol transparent way. Both CAN-connections behave like one single physical CAN-node. CRepOpto/M12 allows the design of flexible wiring topologies. Star and tree structures as well as stub lines can be realized. By selection of the most favourable network topology for the application needs the installation costs can be lowered. The maximum data rate can be increased by use of CRepOpto/M12 and a suitable network structure. An increase in the number of nodes in a CAN-network is possible through separation into sub networks, each of them connected by CRepOpto/M12. Each sub network can manage a maximum number of CAN-nodes only restricted by the transceiver driver capabilities. With transmission over long distances CRepOpto/M12 allows signal recovering. Through the galvanic separation of the bus segments CAN-sections with differing ground potential can be connected. For the most common occuring errors the integrated error suppression reduces the influence of faulty segments to intact sections.
