Ifm's (Germany) 32-bit Extended Controller features 32 multi-functional analog and digital inputs and outputs, which also provide diagnostic functions. The controller also offers five CAN interfaces in accordance with ISO 11898 with CANopen and J1939 protocol.
THE CORE OF THE CONTROLLER IS A FAST 32-bit processor. The controller is fitted in a compact metal housing and designed according to the current standards for electronics in mobile applications. Monitoring and protection functions enable safe operation even under extreme operating conditions.
Programming according to standardized IEC 61131-3 languages with Codesys enables the user to create the application software. It is possible to integrate all control functions into the application program. In addition, libraries are available for special functions of the controller.
The CAN interfaces support all important network protocols, as well as different bit-rates and the transparent and preprocessed data exchange. The E1 type approval of the German Federal Office for Motor Traffic is on hand. The controller has an operating voltage of 10 VDC to 32 VDC with current consumption < 320 mA.
