In CAN networks the underlying transport protocol sets structural limits to the system in standard applications. CAN currently manages a 1 Mbit/s transmission rate, given that the overall network cable length does not exceed 25 meters. If longer lines are necessary, the transmission rate must be recuded – the longer the distance, the higher the speed loss. However, with suitable topology components, high bandwidths can be realized even in large networks. Specific benefits of various solutions will be outlined in the article.

With its new version of the CAN-CR220 repeater IXXAT expanded once again the isolation voltage of the device, which can now be used in areas with higher protection demands.
The CAN-CR220, in the variant 1.01.0067.44300, has an isolation voltage between CAN1, CAN2 and the power supply of 4.0 kV AC / 1 sec. (3.0 kV AC / 3 min.; 3.75 kV AC / 1 min.) and was tested according to DIN/EN 50178 (DIN VDE 0160: 1988-05 and DIN VDE 0160/A1: 1989-04).
