OABR2Ethernet is an automotive media converter between OPEN Alliance BroadR-Reach (OABR) and standard Ethernet 100BASE-T. The aluminium enclosed device can be used to convert Ethernet signals between a car's ECU on one side and a PC or data logger on the other.
In addition to the basic conversion functionality, OABR2Ethernet also provides a CAN transceiver. If there's no activity on the connected CAN bus, the device can optionally be put into sleep mode to reduce power consumption.
Configuration is realised with DIP switches, so no further software tool is required. LEDs provide information about the current status of the media converter and its components. The firmware of the integrated microcontroller can be updated via USB bootloader.
