I have 6 nodes that I want to connect on the same CAN Bus. All the nodes are installed in the same 19" rack, so each segment will be less than 2 ft (0.6 m). The CAN Bus connection on all the nodes is on a terminal block with screw terminals.
The CAN Bus speed is 50kHz. The cable used will be twisted pair. The nodes at each end will be terminated with 120 Ohm resistors.
All documentation I have ever seen for CAN Bus shows the use of drop cables, but I would like to daisy chain the CAN Bus like it is shown in the above drawing.
I would like to know if anyone has any experience in doing the connection this way?
(This is for a SCADA system. 5 of the nodes are EtherCAN modules)
