Shortly before the international CAN Conference (iCC), CiA exhibits at the Conexpo in Las Vegas (USA). The fair takes place from March 10 to March 14. CiA’s joint booth can be found in South Hall 3, booth SL80201. CiA’s co-exhibitors are ETA, Kvaser, and Inter Control.

CAN-based networking in construction and mining machinery includes J1939 and CANopen. Furthermore, CAN FD possibilities are showcased. CAN FD provides more bandwidth resulting in an accelerated software download. It also enables security measures with 64 byte max. payload. CAN FD supports a dynamic cross-communication supported by CANopen FD. The J1939-22 specification making use of the longer CAN FD frames and introducing a Multi-PDU concept is in the final ballot and will be released soon.

North America’s construction trade show represents asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining machines, and more. In 2020 the exhibition extends over more than 232 250 m2. Some 2 800 exhibitors showcase their latest developments, technologies, emerging trends, and business opportunities.
