32-bit CAN controller comes with programming softwareSensor-Technik believes it is the only independent control manufacturer that is offering a 32-bit CAN controller with free programming software.

The new ESX-3XL is an automotive-standard I/O module compatible with CAN-Bus and CANopen protocols. This high-performance, 32-bit device features a 150MHz TriCore TC1796 processor, plus it benefits from 8MB of SRAM, 64MB of Flash memory and 16kB of EEPROM/FRAM.

Also included are four separate CAN 2.0 B interfaces and capacity for 124 I/O. As well as multi-functional analogue/digital inputs, there are Digital/PWM outputs and three programmable constant-voltage outputs for supplying sensors.

If necessary, Sensor-Technik can also provide extension modules (eg motor bridge, additional CAN interfaces, Ethernet, USB or FlexRay).

Safety-related control systems

The ESX-3XL is suitable for SIL2 safety-related applications, thanks to features such as cable break detection, self-diagnostics, short-circuit and overload protection and reversed polarity protection.

Suitable for use in automotive and industrial applications, the IP67 controller boasts a die-cast aluminium housing and Gore-Tex filter for pressure equalisation. The operating temperature range is -40 to +85degC.
