Features and benefits

  • Suitable for CANopen and CAN layer 2 networks
  • 4 digital inputs + clamp 15 (between 0 ... 34 V, threshold at 50 %)
  • 4 digital outputs, max. 1 A, output voltage free selectable
  • 4 analog inputs, 12 bit res. (+/- 5 V, or 0-10 V, or +/- 100 mA)
  • 4 analog outputs, 12 bit res. (+/- 5 V, or +/- 10 V, or 0-5 V, or 0-10 V, switchable via software)
  • Universal use due to robust design and wide power supply range
  • Easy configuration and versatile configuration options
  • Adaptation to specific requirements via optional CANio ADK

CANio 500

A key feature of the device are the inputs and outputs for digital and analog signals, which can be configured very flexible. The device has each four analog inputs and outputs with a 12 bit resolution. The analog inputs are available with different voltage ranges, as well as with differential input circuits or current inputs. The output voltage range can be individually programmed in the working range of -10 V to +10 V for each analog output.
In addition, the device has four digital inputs and outputs. The output voltage range can be freely selected within a wide range, at this, the switching threshold of the inputs automatically adjusts according to the selected voltage range and the outputs are short circuit protected.
A special focus, during the development of the CANio 500, was the device operability within CANopen and also basic CAN bus systems. For this reason, the CANio 500 was designed as a self-starting CANopen slave, with all important parameters, such as Node-ID or sampling rates for the analog inputs, stored as default values on the device. This enables the device to start its operation directly after start up, without making any further settings, and allows due to this the operation in basic CAN bus systems.

The individual configuration of the CANio 500 for different applications can be done either by loading configuration data via a CANopen master or by sending configuration messages in a pure CAN network or offline via the free CANio configuration tool. Configurations that have been created with the CANio configuration tool can be saved as a project and on customer request preinstalled on ordered devices before delivery.

CANio Configuration Tool

The CANio Configuration Tool, included in the scope of delivery, enables the easy and fast configuration of the CANio 250 and CANio 500 devices.

The range of functions of the Windows software includes:
  • CAN parameter configuration (baud rate, message ID's, cycle times)
  • Configuration of the digital inputs (interrupt capability, debounce time) and (only CANio 500) of the analog inputs (interrupt capability, delta value)
  • Configuration of the digital outputs (delta value) and (only CANio 500) analog outputs (output voltage range, default value)
  • Firmware update
  • Download of the ADK applications
  • Storage of the configuration into a configuration file and import of the configuration file
