February 12, 2013 - WinSystems introduces PCM-CAN-2-ISO, a PC/104-compliant, dual channel, isolated Controller Area Network (CAN) module with Windows and Linux drivers available.
The board employs high-speed isolated data couplers and power supplies to provide 1000V protection between the two NXP SJA1000 CAN controllers and the network interface. This makes the module ideal for operation in high-voltage renewable energy, high-speed industrial control, or unpredictable automotive applications, while it maintains low EMI and low-latency operation.
Each CAN channel can provide isolated +5VDC power or receive isolated +5 to +12VDC power from the interface for additional flexibility. The +5VDC power supply includes overvoltage, overcurrent, and short-circuit protection. The PCM-CAN-2-ISO is compliant with CAN specifications 2.0A (11-bit ID) and 2.0B (29-bit ID). CAN is an industry-standard, serial, asynchronous, multi-master communication protocol for connecting electronic control modules, sensors, and actuators in automotive and industrial applications.The PCM-CAN-2-ISO supports transfer rates to 1 Megabits per second and has jumper selectable termination resistors so it can be used in various topology systems. WinSystems offers this board in other off-the-shelf configurations. The PCM-CAN-2 is a dual channel, non-isolated unit. The PCM-CAN-1 is a single channel, non-isolated unit. The PCM-CAN-1-ISO is a single channel, isolated unit. Special OEM configurations are possible. All configurations will operate over the industrial temperature range of -40° to +85° Celsius. PRICING AND AVAILABILITY The isolated dual channel, PCM-CAN-2-ISO, lists for $269; and the non-isolated dual channel, PCM-CAN-2, lists for $229. Delivery is from stock.
