PCAN-MicroMod FD DR CANopen Digital 1


Industrial CANopen and CANopen FD Module for Digital I/O Applications

The PCAN-MicroMod FD DR CANopen Digital 1 is an I/O module for operation in CANopen® and CANopen FD® networks. The modern standard CANopen FD® makes it possible to handle the ever-increasing demand for data transmission from sensors, machines, and complex production plants. The module has a CAN FD interface as well as 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs. With its DIN rail casing and the support of the extended temperature range, the module is suitable for use in an industrial environment.

The node ID and bit rates are set via rotary switches. Thus, no configuration software is required for putting the device in operation. Due to the support of the CANopen® and CANopen FD® standards, a problem-free use in existing networks is guaranteed.

The PCAN-MicroMod FD DR CANopen Digital 1 was developed in cooperation with our partner Embedded Systems Academy, specialized in CANopen®.

Note: The device conformity test and certification for CANopen FD® is pending.
