Embedded PC With CAN Bus Interface For Mobile Vehicle Operation
Embedded PCs are the preferred choice in the filed of mobile vehicle operation, and the support of additional interfaces such an CAN Bus and wireless communication is a plus. The embedded PC IVS-300 by ICP DAS combines all these features in one system.
The design of 255 mm x 185 mm x 80 mm offers space for one CAN interface. Other interfaces are optional, such as two EIA-232, one VGA, one HDMI, one isolated digital I/O, and one EIA-422/485 interface as well as four Gigabit PoE LAN. The latter enable the connection of up to four PoE devices such as IP cameras that can be used for video surveillance.
The two 2,5-inch Sata 6 Gb/s SSD drive bays can be used for the expansion of storage capacity. Owing to the input voltage between 9 VDC to 36 VDC, the operating temperature range from -20 °C to +60 °C, the E-Mark as well as the MIL-STD-810F certification the IVS-300 is eligible for mobile applications. The wireless communication is enabled via an optional 3G kit per dual SIM and a Wi-Fi kit. Both modules are available with or without Bluetooth function. In this way, WLAN and WWAN ranges can be covered as needed. Due to the integrated GPS a real-time location of vehicles is possible at any time.
The product is available with an Intel Celeron Quad-Core 20 GHz of the ULT series or a Core i5 Dual-Core 2,4 GHz processor that only has max. 15 W TDP. On request, ICP delivers this embedded PC also with memory, mass storage, and Windows operating system as completely pre-installed ready-to-use system.
Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial network technology that was originally designed for the automotive industry, especially for European cars, but has also become a popular bus in industrial automation as well as other applications.
The CAN bus is primarily used in embedded systems, and as its name implies, is a network technology that provides fast communication among microcontrollers up to real-time requirements, eliminating the need for the much more expensive and complex technology of a Dual-Ported RAM.
This book provides complete information on all CAN features and aspects combined with a high level of readability.
