Digital and analog devices
Frenzel + Berg has introduced two further CANopen I/O devices. One with analog I/Os, the other with digital I/Os.
The Hipecs CIO300 is a CANopen device with eight digital inputs and eight digital outputs suitable for 24-VDC applications. The I/O’s are positive switching and opto-isolated from the network and the system supply. All outputs are short-circuit protected. The CANopen interface complies with CiA 301 and CiA 401. All recommended bit-rates up to 1 Mbit/s are supported. The product comes in a plastic housing and is suitable for temperatures from 0 °C to +55 °C. The supported PDO transfer modes include change-of-state, event-triggered, cyclic, acyclic, and remotely requested.
The Hipecs CIO61 is a CANopen device with two analog inputs and two analog outputs. The inputs have a 12-bit resolution, the outputs provide a 10-bit resolution. Their range is 0 V to +10 V. They also comply with CiA 301 and CiA 401. Supported bit-rates, temperature range, and CANopen features are the same than the CIO300’s.
For both devices, the setting of Node-ID and CAN bit-rate is done using DIP switches. Extended CAN frames with 29-bit identifiers are supported.
