Control Technologies UK has published a new white paper, A Machine Builder's Guide to CAN-bus. This 15-page illustrated white paper is a 'must' for anyone in the fields of machine building, mobile machinery or factory automation who is considering using CAN-bus or who has recently embarked on a CAN-bus project for the first time.
After a short introduction to CAN-bus (there is a more detailed guide to getting started with CAN-bus on the Control Technologies UK website), the white paper consider the types of application for which CAN-bus is suitable and the advantages this technology offers machine builders.
Next, the white paper outlines what to consider when writing a functional specification for the CAN-bus system, then presents a four-step guide to implementing a CAN-bus system on machinery.
Other useful sections in the white paper cover the limitations of CAN-bus for machine builders and tips for successful implementation of CAN-bus systems.
This white paper is available as a PDF that can be read on-screen or printed if preferred. Contact details are provided for Control Technologies UK in case additional support is required.
