8 Universal Signal (Analog, Digital, PWM) Inputs, 8 Analog Outputs
The controller features 1 CAN port for user-defined communications over the bus. It accepts up to 8 analog inputs (0-5V, 0-10V, 0-20 mA or 4-20 mA). Voltage references are provided to power external sensors. The user can alternatively select PWM inputs. Each can be configured to measure the input value, and send the data to a SAE J1939 CAN network. The I/O module provides 8 analog outputs (0-5V, 0- 10V, +/-5V, +/-10V, 0-20 mA, 4-20 mA). Diagnostics messages are provided over the CAN network for the status of inputs or outputs. A RS-232 port is provided for user configuration via PC or for diagnostic purposes. Rugged IP65 rated packaging in addition to a 12 or 24V power supply input section suits power generation and large engine applications. During set-up, using an USB-CAN converter and a PC, the operator can configure the controller via the Electronic Assistant® to suit a variety of applications.
