The Hipecs-CIO103 module from Frenzel + Berg (Germany) is a CANopen I/O system with eight digital inputs and eight digital outputs. The CAN network is isolated.
The product’s output technology differs significantly from the other I/O modules, said the company. The power drivers of the module can each drive two amperes on all eight outputs simultaneously and permanently. This way in many applications, follow-on drivers can be dispensed with. Setting of Node-ID and CAN bit rate is done using coding switches.
In this module the CANopen standards CiA 301 version 4.2 and CiA 401 version 3.1 are implemented. All usual bit rates up to 1 Mbit/s are supported. CANopen diagnosis LEDs are also provided. CANopen PDO transfer modes are synchronous, asynchronous, event triggered, cyclic, acyclic, and RTR.
The I/O’s are positive switching and opto-isolated from the bus and the system supply. All outputs are short-circuit protected. Each output could be loaded up to 2 A.
