Acromag's I/O Modules Provide Two CAN Bus Isolated Interfaces for Industrial PCs and Embedded Systems

Acromag's CAN bus modules are available in an IndustryPack format or for use with their I/O Server Industrial PC to interface network devices to embedded monitoring and 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.
