Acromag has released new CAN bus modules to interface network sensors and actuators to high-performance control systems. Two versions of the CAN bus interface module are available.
The IP560 is an Industry Pack ANSI/VITA-4 card that plugs into VME, CompactPCI, and PCI bus mezzanine carrier cards or single-board computers in embedded systems.
IOS-560 models are designed for use within Acromag’s I/O Server industrial PC, a small fanless box computer, which services mobile computing, machine control, and test applications.
Both CAN bus interface modules feature two channels with optional isolation. Each channel has an NXP SJA1000 CAN controller with a TJA1041 transceiver. Extended temperature models support -40 to 85°C operation. Both models have two complete CAN bus interfaces, each using an NXP SJA1000 CAN controller with a high-speed TJA1041 transceiver. The modules support CAN 2.0B protocol compatibility and ISO 11898 compliance for Part A (11-bit) and Part B extended (29-bit) arbitration IDs. PeliCAN mode extensions provide numerous communication capabilities.
Single quantity pricing starts at $500.
