CAN Bus Module provides 4 independent interfaces.

Press Release Summary:




Integrating into QuantumX universal measurement system, Model MX471 enables CAN messages to be synchronously acquired and stored for all analog or digital measured quantities such as torque, force, strain, displacement, pressure, and temperature. Module supports high-speed CAN and is connected to PC or data logger via Ethernet TCP/IP or FireWire. CAN messages can be used as trigger for measurement recordings while status of any network nodes can be logged and shown directly at device.

Synchronized Measurement of Analog and Digital Signals with the New CAN Bus Module for QuantumX



Marlboro, MA - The latest MX471 CAN bus module from HBM features four independent CAN bus interfaces and integrates seamlessly into the QuantumX universal measurement system. This enables CAN messages to be synchronously acquired and stored for all analog or digitally measured quantities such as torque, force, strain, displacement, pressure, rotational speed and temperature.

CAN bus usually forms the core network in vehicle electronics with control units in the drive train, the driving dynamics and in the body electronics all connected to provide best-possible vehicle behavior.

The MX471 is designed to complement the QuantumX to provide the user with a flexible and simple to operate system that is backed by comprehensive software support.

The MX471 module supports both the writing and acquisition of CAN messages. This allows quantities directly acquired by a QuantumX amplifier to be sent as individual CAN messages adding a powerful gateway functionality to the measurement system.

The CAN bus module supports high-speed CAN and is connected to a PC or a data logger via Ethernet TCP/IP or FireWire. Configuration is easy and, for example, uses description files in DBC format. CAN messages can be used as a trigger for measurement recordings while the status of any network nodes can be logged and are shown directly at the device.

Any application involving extensive use of the CAN bus, such as vehicle testing or on automotive industry test benches, or in automation will benefit from the use of the MX471 CAN bus module.
