TTControl (Austria) has launched the HY-TTC 30X product series of CANopen I/O modules. They are designed to fulfill the EN ISO 13849 requirements and to be used in mobile applications.
"WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE A NEW TTControl family of smart and modular I/O modules for all different kinds of control tasks in a vehicle that helps our customers to reduce costs through reduced wiring and a standardized protocol enabling fast and easy installation,” said Roberto Ferrari. The CANopen NMT slave modules can be controlled by the company’s CANopen control unit with NMT master functionality. The I/O series launched at Bauma 2013 includes four different variants of modules corresponding to the different demands such as controlling proportional valves, digital/analog outputs or inputs. They also provide a wide range of configurable I/Os and allow local current control for its PWM outputs. Another use case for I/O modules is to control add-on equipment that is not always present on the vehicle, this allows to omit the module in vehicle variants with less equipment in order to reduce system costs.
All modules are protected by an aluminum die-cast housing. They are delivered with a ready-to-run software and an electronic data sheet (EDS file). When the control unit is programmed in Codesys by 3S, the EDS file can be imported into the Codesys development environment.
