Winsystems (USA) has introduced the PCM-CAN-2-ISO module, which comes with Windows or Linux driver software. The board features one or two isolated CAN interfaces. Both ports support data-rates up to 1 Mbit/s.
THE PC/104 BOARD PROVIDES A 1000-V isolation between the two bus-lines realized by means of high-speed data couplers. This makes the module suitable for operation in high-voltage renewable energy, high-speed industrial control, or unpredictable automotive applications, while it maintains low EMI and low-latency operation. Each CAN channel can provide isolated +5VDC power or receive isolated +5 VDC to +12 VDC power from the interface for additional flexibility. The +5-VDC power supply includes overvoltage, overcurrent, and short-circuit protection. The module is equipped with two SJA1000 stand-alone CAN controllers by NXP.
It supports CAN base (11-bit) and extended (29-bit) frame format messages. The board is also available with non-isolated CAN interfaces. The company is also able to provide special OEM configurations. All variants operate over the industrial temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C.
