gle/SCB-100 is a cost-effective solution designed to connect virtually any RS 232 capable device to a CAN Bus, its operation is completely standalone, so it do not need to be connected to a PC.

This unit includes a powerful microcontroller to synchronize and parse the incoming RS 232 data stream and a CAN 2.0B controller to send converted messages to a CAN Bus with a bit-rate up to 1Mbit/s.

CAN Bus interface is isolated to avoid ground loops and it is fully compatible with the ISO 11898 standard.

gle/SCB-100 offers a robust construction in a small aluminum enclosure as well a wide operating temperature range.


It can be programmed by user in order to support different asynchronous serial protocols sent from different devices, such measurement transducers or systems (GPS receiver, Inertial Systems, Pressure, Load, Displacement sensors …).

The user programs via RS232 the following Can Bus parameters: bit-rate, data frame format (standard 2.0A or extended 2.0B) and the identifier of each message.

Once it is programmed, the setup is automatically loaded at power up and this unit runs as a stand-alone interface box without the need of an external PC.


gle/SCB-100 HW and SW can be factory customized to meet various OEM necessities.
