The ECAN-240 is a Modbus TCP, 2-port CAN Bus Gateway Module. The module communicates via the Ethernet based on the Modbus TCP industrial protocol, allowing easy integration with an industrial network. ECAN-240 includes 2-port CAN bus interfaces, allowing multiple CAN applications to be supported, such as a CAN bridge or a CAN message router. With the CAN message router functionality, the module allows four different CAN networking to be connected ensuring communication with each other.

Modbus TCP Server:
The Modbus TCP Server function is used to implement communications between a CAN device and a Modbus TCP Client. When the ECAN-240 module is acting as a Modbus TCP Server, the Modbus TCP Client needs to use Modbus commands based on the CAN format in order to access the ECAN-240 module. The ECAN-240 module will then translate these commands into CAN format messages and send them to the CAN networks. Similarly, when a CAN format message is received from the CAN network, the ECAN-240 translates the message into Modbus format, which can then be accessed using a Modbus command.
Modbus TCP Client:
The Modbus TCP Client function is used to implement communications between a CAN Bus and a Modbus TCP Server. When the ECAN-240 module is acting as a Modbus TCP Client, it can access the Modbus TCP Server via the command configuration. When the ECAN-240 module receives I/O data, it will forward it to the remote CAN devices for analysis, control, or other operations. Once configured, the ECAN-240 module is also able to access the Modbus TCP Server via a CAN message.
The Pair Connection function is used to implement communication between two ends of CAN network. CAN Network #1 can communicate with CAN Network #3 or CAN Network #4 using pair connection configuration. Similarly, CAN Network #2 can also communicate with CAN Network #3 or CAN Network #4 in the same manner. The pair connection function on the ECAN-240 module is implemented via either the TCP or the UDP protocol.
The Transparent option is to see as a half-pair connections. The TCP/UDP packet is in CAN format and contains the CAN ID. This is useful because it allows custom TCP/UDP programs to be developed that can directly access the ECAN-240 module for specific applications.
