CANgate® CAN to ASCII Gateway


The dataTaker CANgate is a CAN to ASCII gateway converting CAN (Controlled Area Network) and GPS data to serial data.  It has been designed to capture the real-time data available on CAN and GPS networks (e.g. temperatures, RPM, brake/throttle settings, latitude, longitude, speed etc.) and pass that information on to either a dataTaker data logger or host computer system.

Two CAN interface ports are included, which allow connection of two independent CAN networks. CANgate's versatile configuration options allow you to select the parameters of interest, apply statistical functions (average, minimum, maximum) and control the format in which data are returned. CANgate supports widely used protocols such as ISO-15765-2 and SAE-J1939, as well as raw CAN frames
