HMS Networks’ CANbridge NT series features Smart LUA script processing, bi-directional MQTT messaging.
HMS Networks announced it has extended the functionality of its Ixxat CAN@net NT and CANbridge NT series with the release of its Service Pack 2. Users can now add event-controlled network actions and bi-directional MQTT-messaging to cloud applications. The CANbridge NT enables coupling of up to four CAN and CAN-FD networks using filter and translation rules. The Service Pack 2 introduces enhanced “Action Rules” programming for definition and execution of events and actions for all CAN@net NT and CANbridge products. Based on LUA script processing, user-defined actions can be triggered upon pre-defined message content or status information. SP2 also introduced bi-directional MQTT messaging to the CAN@net NT series.
