Rugged 8 Inch Tablet With CAN Expansion Module For Integration Into In-Vehicle Networks
The Handheld Group (Sweden) introduced its Algiz 8X, an 8-inch rugged tablet with CAN expansion module accessory then can be integrated into in-vehicle networks.
“Our CAN expansion module is a powerful tool that will allow our Algiz 8X rugged tablet to communicate with CAN networks in vehicles and industrial automation environments, without adding significant bulk,” said Johan Hed, Handheld Group’s Director of Product Management. “The CAN accessory joins our COM port, RJ45 port, and barcode scanner modules to provide a range of expansion options for our customers. The CAN module allows the Algiz 8X to send and receive short messages such as sensor values or actuator commands, fully integrating the tablet into the environment’s centralized communication interface.”
The Pentium-based tablet computer is suited to tough industrial environments. It is IP65-rated and is MIL‑STD‑810G‑tested for military-grade protection against dust, water, vibrations, drops, extreme temperatures, and varying altitudes. A modular design allows the Algiz 8X to pair seamlessly with all kinds of expansions and industry-specific equipment. It features an 8-inch capacitive touchscreen built from chemically strengthened glass, is only 24 mm thick and weighs less than 1 kg.
SAE J1939 to Bluetooth Gateway With 9-Pin Deutsch Connection Cable
The jCOM.J1939.BT gateway is a high-performance, low-latency, wireless vehicle network adapter for SAE J1939 applications. It allows any host device with a Bluetooth COM port to monitor SAE J1939 data traffic and communicate with the SAE J1939 vehicle network. An SAE J1939 cable, suited for a 9-pin Deutsch connection, is included with the gateway.
The gateway supports the full SAE J1939 protocol according to J1939/81 Network Management (Address Claiming) and J1939/21 Transport Protocol (TP). It is also supported by an extensive programming interface for Windows and Linux/Ubuntu applications, including full C/C++/C# source code for short time-to-market developments.
