CANopen and J1939
This month, Electronic Design (USA) became member of CAN in Automation. They offer a range of CAN-related products.
THE COMPANY OFFERS VARIOUS CANopen and J1939 products. One of them is the CANopen Bus Splitter. It utilizes M12 connector points to connect multiple devices to CANopen. This module is IP67-rated, and made for a rugged industrial environment. It eliminates Y-adapters and extra cables. Another product of the company is the CANopen Power Output Module. It is a ten-channel PWM output module designed for industrial vehicle applications. Each PWM output frequency and duty cycle can be independently controlled. This module features LED status indication for power, CAN bus traffic, and output state. Also featured is reverse battery protection and operation in either 12 V or 24 V applications. Communication for this device is via CANopen protocol.
Electronic Design also offers the CAN Angle Sensor. It is a solid-state inclinometer that utilizes MEMs technology to output angular data via J1939. This module is potted and housed in an ABS plastic enclosure to allow for use in the harshest conditions. This device can be configured to work as a single axis (± 180 °), dual axis (± 90°), or triple axis module.
The J1939 High Current Output Module features (10) PWM outputs that have independent frequency and duty cycle control and provides solid-state power distribution from the CAN network. Other products, which are included in the company’s portfolio are for example custom keypads and custom I/O controls which can be made to stand-alone or work with existing systems. The keypad and I/O controls can also be made to work in a J1939, NMEA 2000, or CANopen platform to make implementation easy.
The J1939-to-USB Adapter is an adapter that converts CAN (J1939) data to the USB interface. This device mimics the COM port on a computer and functions at a bit-rate of 250 kbit/s in compliance with the J1939 standard. This device was designed for the industrial automotive environment and can handle the harshest conditions. The electronics are fully potted and rated at IP67.
