The CAN messages are packed as data in TCP or UDP messages and forwarded via an IP network. CAN systems can thus be integrated into IoT environ-ments and have an alternative access point for remote diagnostics.
The configuration of the PCAN-Gateways is done via a comfortable website, which can be time-consuming for multiple devices. The JSON interface released with the software package 2.7 offers developers an alternative way to access the devices. A JSON-formatted request is sent to the PCAN-Gateway as a GET parameter of a URL. Requested information or the status of a configuration request is returned as a JSON-formatted response. This makes it possible to develop software for automated monitoring and configurtion of all PCAN-Gateways connected to the IP network.
The new software package 2.7 is now available free of charge. The JSON interface and its use is described in detail in the PCAN-Gateway developer documentation.
