THE UNIT IS ABLE TO COMMUNICATE VIA a galvanically isolated CAN connection, an Ethernet, and two serial EIA-232 interfaces. It is equipped with a 192-MHz ARM9 micro-controller. A 32-MiB Flash memory as well as a 32-MiB RAM are available for the pre-installed Linux operating system. An internal MicroSD slot may extend device’s capacity.
Due to its battery-backed real-time clock the module is applicable independent from an external time-server. Having a width of 22,5 mm, the module is suitable for control cabinet applications. and may be combined with all modules from the MicroControl μCAN-Snap family via an integrated back plane bus.
