Inter Control (Germany) specialized in control systems for mobile machinery provides several CAN-connectable modules with I/O functionality. They support communication bit rates up to 1 Mbit/s. The devices come with CANopen, Isobus, J1939, or CAN-Kingdom software support.

THE DIGSY ICN-V MODULES feature four digital inputs and eight digital outputs as well as eight PWM outputs. Due to their mechanical construction and their IP66K-rated housing they are suitable to be mounted directly at the chassis of mobile machines. The electrical attributes have been aligned especially to the needs of hydraulic devices. Particularly, the direct control of proportional valves is possible. The Digsy ICN-D32 modules are suitable for cockpits and control cabinet installation. The housings are IP30-rated.
The modules provide 32 configurable I/O ports, e.g. eight digital inputs, eight analog inputs, four input counters as well as four digital outputs, four PWM outputs, two reference voltage sources, and two current outputs. All outputs are protected against short-circuits and overload. They can be connected in parallel. Status LED´s for the I/O´s ease the error diagnostics. The German company also offers application-specific I/O modules. OEM versions with CAN communication parameter presets are possible. All devices may come with software support for the above-mentioned higher-layer protocols.
