MicroControl modules: sophisticated customizable technology

Enhanced temperature range, higher resolution, broadened power supply range and higher IP rating

Decentralized acquisition of measurement values and conversion of analogue to digital data on the spot is safer and provides more performance and constructive leeway. MicroControl's sophisticated CAN/CANopen I/O modules are available as highly economical serial products or may be customized to your specific requirements as development, engineering, configuration and manufacturing are Made in Germany.

The consistent hardware platform

More efficient and faster due to ARM based controllers

• significantly higher processing power

- up to 40 % faster than conventional MicroControl modules

- up to 50 % faster than current industrial standard

• considerably reduced power consumption

- "GreenPower" means 50 % less power consumption of the CPU and increased performance which results in less heat emission and notably reduced requirements for air conditioning in control cabinets.

• controller architecture made for the future

- CAN FD ready - any time

- hard real time / interrupts in ns range

• cross-product developments and validations (e.g. EMC and environmental tasting) are more efficient, safer and to be realized faster.

10 Years guaranteed availability MicroControl I/O modules

The consistent software platform

More efficient and safer due to cross-product software platform

• individual customer specifications and adaptations can quickly be realized on all MicroControl modules

• improved system tests faciliate error detection and increase availability

• high processing power due to FPU/DSP

- customer specific future measurement procedures and evaluations to be realized easily

• new features

- dynamic PDO mapping

- buffered real time clock

- all modules equipped with standard CANopen Bootloader

Components of excellent quality provide outstanding process reliability. Our expertise in bus systems, our presence in the European core market Germany and, not least, our dedication to working in user organizations such as CiA (CAN in Automation) and ETG (EtherCAT Technology Group) will give our customers a competitive edge in the market.
