Active xtremeDB fieldbus modules with proven DT connection technology form the center of the Data Panel solution. The modules are available for CANopen, SAE J1939 communication protocol.
These robust modules offer eight ports for input or output signals and can be individually parameterized. Sensor signals can be read in digital, analog, or as frequency/counter/encoder signals. Outputs are available as digital, ratiometric, pulse width modulated PWM(I), or PVG-compatible signals.
With xtremeDB, series machines benefit on a modularly designed, pluggable extension level, opposed to the limitations of relying solely on wiring harnesses. Option management, evolving customer requirements, and future function expansions can be mapped much more easily in a flexible component-based system. Smaller machines, which only work with a display control, can be easily expanded with full-fledged I/O’s using xtremeDB modules.
Up to 52A total current can be fused and centrally wired in four power circuits. The outputs can drive up to 4A, and two digital outputs per module can be loaded up to 10A. All outputs are overload and short-circuit protected, and the momentary output current amperage values for each pin can be read out via the bus. Integrated diagnostics via LED and CAN telegram ensure simplified troubleshooting.
The modules are addressed by means of jumpers in the 18-pin DT connector. The advantage of this method: When the module is replaced, the address setting remains in the connection cable. A replacement module is immediately ready for use after plugging in, no prior setting or parameterization required. The xtremeDB modules are equipped with two combined CAN and sensor supply connections, which allows easy expansion. Data Panel also offers professional solutions for a star-shaped CAN distribution.
