Configurable CAN FD Modules with Digital And Analog I/O Ports

Posted by Industry News on

PEAK PCAN-MicroMod CAN Bus FD Digital I-O Module

PEAK-System announced its I/O modules PCAN-MicroMod FD, which is now available in a black aluminum profile enclosure. The device offers a variety of peripherals for special requirements. The data exchange is performed via CAN FD, which is downward-compatible to the Classical CAN Bus.

The motherboard PCAN-MicroMod FD Analog 1 features analog inputs and outputs with eight input ports providing a resolution of 16 bits. 

The Digital versions of the motherboard support eight outputs that are offered either as Low-side switches (Digital 1) or High-side switches (Digital 2). All motherboards come with one analog input for voltage monitoring of up to 30 Volts, and two additional frequency outputs of up to 20 kHz.

A Windows software, included in the scope of delivery, manages the configuration of the motherboards with PCAN-MicroMod FD; the setup data is transmitted via the CAN FD interface. The motherboards can run as independent CAN nodes. The wiring connection to the devices is made via spring terminal connectors, and the extended operating temperature ranges from -40 to +85 °C (-40 to +185 °F).
