Electronic Controllers include 2 CAN ports.

Press Release Summary:




Capable of operating as stand-alone modules or as master controllers, general purpose CANLink® Models CL-413, CL-420, and CL-421 can each be configured to precise combination of input and output types application may require. Model CL-413 is equipped with 39 inputs and 22 or 24 outputs, while Model CL-420 features 19 inputs and 10 outputs, and Model CL-421 provides 18 inputs and 12 or 14 outputs.



Original Press Release:



New I/O Dense, Flexible General Purpose Controllers



(Hartford, WI) - HED, Inc., the experts in controlled area network (CAN) technology
recently added three new general purpose programmable electronic controllers in
the same compact housing, expanding the range of standard CANLink® products to
33 modules of various I/O configurations and features.

I/O Density
The new modules, designated CL-413, CL-420, and CL-421, feature a high number
of inputs and outputs (up to 63 in the case of the CL-413) as well as two CAN ports.
The controllers are capable of operating as either stand alone modules or master
controllers.

"We recognize that not all electronic control applications will be distributed systems," stated Joseph P. Maher, Sales & Marketing Manager for HED, "These modules are
designed to have all the I/O required to act as single board controllers, but with the
added capability to be master controllers in a multiplexed system. This way our
customers have tremendous flexibility for future expansion."

Flexibility of Configurable I/O
The flexibility does not end there, as each module can be configured to the precise
combination of input and output types the application may require. "The built-in
flexibility including both software and hardware configurability of the I/O assures
broad applicability over a tremendous range of applications and vehicle types,"
indicated John Kitzerow, Business & Product Manager for HED.
