CAN bus integration of sensors

For customers looking for an OEM solution as a link between analogue sensor technology and digital CAN networks, the µCAN sensor family is the most suitable product. Their miniaturized electronics allow connection of a wide range of sensors and can be integrated into customized casings. All modules are equipped with a high-speed CAN interface supporting CAN 2.0A and CAN 2.0B. This includes the layer-7 protocols CANopen, CANopen FD, J1939 and a multitude of manufacturer-specific variants.

In addition to the extension of the classic “CAN” and the higher resolutions enabled by CAN FD, the new OEM board features improved performance data with a sampling rate of up to 1 kHz.

The modules are available in individual board designs for implementation directly on the sensor. The electronics are integrated in the sensor casing to form a closed unit. Short cable runs and the joint adjustment of electronics and sensor result in a higher accuracy than directly mounted solutions can achieve.

The miniaturized boards are available as  1- or 2-channel module for integration in the sensor.
