HE200CGM100 OVERVIEW
The HE200CGM100 is an intelligent CAN network isolating repeater.
CAN (Controller Area Network) is the basis for networking protocols used in automotive, and
more recently, industrial control applications. Published application protocols which use CAN
include SDS (MicroSwitch) and DeviceNet (Allen Bradley).
In a typical CAN network, each device is assigned a unique CAN node address (ID) to arbitrate
network communication.
Depending on the application protocol used, these IDs are assigned in the range of 0 to 253.
Therefore, up to 254 devices may be logically attached to a CAN network.
However, the use of standard CAN transceiver chips limits the number of physically attached
devices to 64. Thus, to reach the logical limit of 254 devices, up to three smart CAN repeaters
are used to connect groups of devices together.
A CAN network (without repeaters) should be limited to a maximum cable length of 1500 feet
(assuming a Baud rate of 125 kHz). With repeaters, this limit may be extended to 6000 ft.
In conclusion, the HE200CGM100 CAN repeater's 1000V isolation virtually eliminates problems
associated with ground potential differences that are inherent in long cable drops on many local
area networks.

HE200CGM100 INSTALLATION
Power Connection
The CAN Network Repeater Module is powered by 8-32VDC and requires approximately 2.8
Watts @ 24VDC. The power supplied to the repeater must be isolated from ALL other system
power supplies. For example, the repeater SHOULD NOT be powered from the 33VDC power
terminals on the HE200PLC084 conveyer controller. A simple solution is to use an Archer 2731652 AC Adapter available from Radio Shack. This device provides 12VDC at 500mA.
CAN Connection
The following diagram shows how to properly wire multiple nodes together on the CAN network:
Node 1
Node 2
Node 3
Node N
Terminal 1
Terminal 2
R
Terminal 3
Terminal 4
Cable Shield (not connected to Terminals 2 or 3)
R = 120 Ohm Resistor
CAN Wiring Rules
1) A CAN network should be wired in a daisy-chained fashion, such that there are exactly two
physical endpoints on the network.
2) The two nodes at the physical endpoints should have 120 ohm terminating resistors
connected across terminals 2 and 3.
3) The data conductors (terminals 2 and 3) should be a 24 AWG shielded twisted pair, with 120ohm characteristic impedance.
4) Notice that for a section of cable between two nodes, the cable shield is connected to
terminal 4 at one end of the cable only.
5) A CAN network (without repeaters) should be limited to 64 nodes with a maximum cable
length of 1500 ft.
6) Up to four CAN network segments, which adhere to the above five rules, may be connected
together using three CAN repeaters (HE200CGM100). In this manner, a CAN network may
be extended to 253 nodes with a total cable distance of 6000 ft.
7) Each HE200PLC084 unit is assigned a unique Network ID (Local PLC number) by the
HEPLC programming software, via the RS485 port. Repeaters DO NOT have Network
Addresses.

CAN Repeater Wiring:
For wiring purposes, a repeater can be thought of as two CAN nodes, each of which is part of a
different network segment (as shown in the diagram below).

MECHANICAL INSTALLATION
•
See attached “CANBUS REPEATER BASE” drawing (on the next page) for mechanical
mounting considerations. For best results, mount to a metal backplate that is electrically
connected to earth ground.
