The 351CM007 CAN module from elobau easily connects operator controls and sensors with digital or analogue outputs to CAN bus systems. Initially designed for elobau's J4F joystick with safety electronics, the module is now available as a standalone product.
Suitable for the extreme operating conditions found in off-highway vehicles, the CAN module is protected to IP67 and operates on either CANopen or SAE J1939 CAN bus protocols. Wiring the machine is simplified, as all components and controls are connected and communicate on one bus system - and, if operating on SAE J1939 with safety functions, each component connected to the module fulfils safety functions in accordance with SIL2 (EN 61508:2010) or PLd (ISO 13849-1:2008).
Although it is compact for easy installation in confined spaces, there is no compromise on functionality because the module features 17 inputs for analogue and digital signals, three LED outputs, and an additional 5V supply for external components.
Constructed from glass fibre-reinforced plastic, it is space-saving, lightweight yet reliably robust. The moulded design contains openings for fixing cables to avoid unintentional damage, and mounting sleeves for simple and accurate mounting.
The CAN modules are individually configured for each application, providing system connectivity without compromise.
