For a more flexible networking and increased
communication reliability in CAN and CAN FD systems.

Ixxat repeaters are established successfully in many different application areas, whether in test benches for communication networks or in production systems. Using repeaters, network segments or components can be galvanically isolated, long drop-lines or tree/star topologies can be implemented and the robustness and reliability of the network can be increased.
If you want to expand the distances you should use one of Bridge/Gateway/Router solutions.

CAN / CAN FD Repeaters
HMS_web-icon_High performance

Increase reliability

CAN and CAN FD repeaters increase your system reliability with almost no influence on the real-time behavior.


For harsh environments

Decouple CAN or CAN FD segments galvanically with up to 4 kV or use variants with fiber optics.


Simplified networking

Repeaters enable star and tree topologies as well as large drop lines. 

Application examples – How repeaters are used

Expand pure bus topologies by droplines or
setup tree and star structures

Repeaters for star and tree topologies

Protect your test bench from harsh environments 
using repeaters with galvanic isolation
(e.g. battery or high voltage test benches)

Bridging of large distances

Interconnect networks in harsh environments
via fiber optic connection

Repeaters for galvanic isolation
