New Ixxat repeater series for CAN FD as well as CA

HMS Networks released four Ixxat CAN FD repeaters that enable CAN FD and CAN components to be networked using tree and star topologies, as well as allowing implementation of drop lines. No configuration is required in the process. The repeaters are available with two and four channels for copper-wired networking (versions CAN-CR100 and CAN-CR300) and for copper and fiber-optic connectivity (CAN-CR110/FO). All repeaters have a galvanic isolation of 1kV, except for the CAN-CR120/HV version which withstands up to 3kV. With the fiber optic version, it is possible to bridge distances with high electromagnetic interferences or to design applications with very high demands on galvanic isolation. The repeaters come with slim plastic housings for DIN rail mounting, and the CAN connection is done via screw terminals.
