Ametek Vehicular Instrumentation Systems (VIS) has added the CAN I/O X Expander Module to its family of CAN Interface Modules used to enhance vehicle instrumentation systems.
The CAN I/O X is able to convert switched, analog or pulsed input into a standard or proprietary J1939 CAN data bus message for any device on a vehicle instrumentation system, Ametek says. It provides manual transmissions and mechanical engines a means to connect with electronic instrumentation by converting pulsed inputs to digital information. It also allows switched and analog inputs to be converted to digital data and converts pulsed input into a J1939 CAN data bus message. Ametek says the module features ten switched and analog inputs and a minimal footprint of 18.7 sq. in.
Ametek adds that the CAN I/O X module is environmentally sealed against dust and moisture penetration to IP67 specifications and can be mounted onto a vehicle chassis. The module is designed to withstand harsh conditions and rugged off-highway environments. It also meets all SAE J1455 and J1113 requirements for vehicular instrumentation, the company says.
