The RO-CAN-O16-64 module is available in versions with 16, 32 or 64 inputs. It has a CAN interface with an open CAN protocol and can, with the help of our automatic RX/TX mode, independently receive or send CAN packets within a network.
- CAN interface with galvanic isolation
- Open CAN protocol
- Automatic send/receive mode
- 16/32/64 Digital inputs: 15V – 30V AC/DC (optional 5V – 15V)
- 16 bit counter per channel (up to 100Hz)
- LED status display per input channel
With our optocoupler inputs, digital signal states can be recorded within a voltage range of 5V to 30V AC or DC. Input and output circuits are galvanically isolated from each other up to 2.5kV.
Digital In Input Filter
With our Digital-In modules, an input filter can be set in a time interval of 1ms…255ms to filter interference pulses.
This means that AC signals can also be detected cleanly.
Each input has a 16 bit counter that can count up to 65535 pulses. If the maximum counter value is exceeded, the counting process starts again from zero. By means of a software command, the current status of all input counters can be read from the module simultaneously.
Recording of status changes
Status changes that occur between the readout cycles are reliably detected by internal flip-flops and can be read out separately by software. In addition, such an event is signalled by a status LED. Resetting is done automatically after the flip-flops have been read out.
Automatic send and receive mode
Use our Auto RX/TX mode and automate the workflow of your DEDITEC product by independently processing or sending CAN packets from or to other participants in the network. With our free tool “CAN Configuration Utility” you can define via a graphical user interface how the RX and TX packets should be processed. For example, you can read the values of an A/D converter and send them to a CAN module with D/A output.
Different configuration modes
The RO-CAN interface can be configured in three different ways and is selected via DIP switches:
The preferred mode with preset CAN default values, a DIP switch mode where all CAN specifications can be set via DIP switches or a software mode where the setup can be easily defined via our CAN Configuration Utility.
Each digital input and output has a separate LED that lights up when the signal state is active. Furthermore, the status of the operating voltage, the communication with the interface, error events or the occurrence of a timeout can be displayed.
A screwless system from the manufacturer WAGO Kontakttechnik is used as the connector. The 1-wire female connectors are 100% protected against mismating and have an eject and locking mechanism. All conductor types up to 1.5mm² can be connected.
