Interfaces are used to transfer information between the individual components of a system. In a bus system, all components are connected via short stub lines to a common data line. The effort for the wiring is thereby minimized. In this case, additional components can be easily connected.
The data flow must be controlled via an access procedure (protocol) if all components use a common bus line. As much as possible components from different manufacturers should work together. The Controller Area Network (CAN) connects several equal components (node) via a 2-wire bus plus additional ground line. The CAN protocol was developed in 1983 by “Bosch” for use in motor vehicles and first presented to the public in 1986.
Due to the high immunity to interference, the low costs and the real-time capability, CAN is not only used in the automotive industry but also in many other sectors (eg commercial vehicles, mobile machinery, railways, medical technology, industrial automation, elevators, etc.) as a machine bus system.
Bus termination (terminator)
Bus termination takes place on the CAN bus with a line topology of 120 ohms at both ends of the network.
Termination is recommended even for short lines with low bit rates. Without termination, there are reflections. In practice, terminations at one end are sufficient for short lines, but ideally the bus is terminated at both ends (and only there) with 120 ohms each.

elkatec™ – Lösungsansatz: 6-pole Superseal pin moulded with circuit board, connection possible via connection cable 6-pole Superseal connector.
- Project example: Molded circuit board in Superseal plugs
With the project example of molded circuit board, elkatec™ offers the possibility, using the low pressure moulding technology, to install equipped circuit boards on proved connector systems and then overmoulding all inserted parts. Based on the selected method, so many positive attributes can be linked to one another (More info see elkatec™-catalog.
