network repeater / industrial
The CAN Repeater is used for the galvanic isolation of two segments of a CAN network and for creating star or tree topologies. One special feature of the Repeater is that it separates a defective segment from the rest of the network so that the remaining network can continue working. After elimination of the defect, the segment is switched into the network again.
Alternative, the Repeater can be equipped with a low-speed bus interface (ISO 11898-3), allowing the operation as high/low-speed converter. Its galvanic isolation isolates both CAN segments from each other as well as from the power supply.
