Virtual PCAN-Gateway

Windows Software for Direct Access to PCAN-Gateways

The Virtual PCAN-Gateway software package provides access for Windows computers to devices of the PCAN-Gateway product line over IP-based networks. Various LAN and WLAN network adapters can be used.

Analog to the bidirectional connection of two PCAN-Gateways, message forwarding with so-called routes must be set up between the hardware and the software. At first, two routes have to be created on the configuration website of the hardware, one for sending and another for receiving. Then, the appropriate counterparts of these routes must be established within the configuration software.

Due to this connection, the PCAN-Gateways are being integrated in the established PCAN environment and can be used like a conventional PEAK CAN interface. For example, the traffic on the CAN channels can be displayed and traced with the PCAN-View CAN monitor.

Note: The software requires a PCAN-Gateway as a counterpart. It is not possible to establish a connection between two computers with the Virtual PCAN-Gateway.
