TKE Marine Certified CAN Switch WCS-10

TKE Marine Certified CAN Switch WCS-10

Codice prodotto: WCS-10

CAN Switch che permette di collegare quattro bus CAN, anche con bitrate differenti. Montaggio su guida DIN. Marine certified.


A CAN switch, or CAN bridge is an intelligent repeater that allows connecting several CAN buses, even with different bitrates. The buses are not electrically connected but messages are read from one CAN bus, optionally filtered, and then retransmitted on one or several of the other CAN buses.

Benefits of the TKE CAN Switch

The benefits of a switch/bridge are many. When the bus segments are electrically separated, short circuits and other electrical disturbances are isolated to the segment where they occur, letting the other branches of the network continue operation normally. Bus load can be reduced if not all messages are retransmitted to all of the branches. One branch can use a lower bitrate to allow increasing the bus length to a few remote nodes.
The TKE CAN switch/bridge has four switched CAN ports and an additional CAN port for configuration.

Marine Certified CAN Switch / Bridge

Gold plated connectors and adapted for marine use, it has been certified by the Germanischer Lloyd (now DNV GL) for use in GL classed vessels.
With thousands delivered to the marine industry the WCS-10 ensures safe segmentation of CAN networks in ships all over the world.
The WCS-10 is certified for environmental category D, EMC 1 as well as software class 3. The certificate number is 75 189-09 HH.
