The LIN to RS-232 Gateway is a bidirectional communication converter that can be used to interface a LIN bus to RS-232. The converter can be easily integrated into other systems with the help of its open communication protocol over RS-232. The device can act as LIN Master, LIN Slave, or LIN sniffer. A typical use-case is to interconnect a PLC with a LIN network. The user can transmit and receive LIN frames, or simply monitor LIN bus communication.

LIN-RS232 Data Sheet
LIN-RS232 Gateway Communication Protocol Specification

The communication protocol over RS-232 offers to use the device in three modes:

  • LIN Master
  • LIN Slave
  • LIN Monitor (communication sniffer)

The communication protocol allows to control the LIN-RS232 gateway:

  • Configure the LIN channel (Master/Slave, Baud Rate, Checksum type)
  • Transmit: Master Request, Master Responses
  • Receive: Slave Responses
  • Simulate Slave
  • Sniffer: to receive all LIN communication
