Controller Area Networks
With the FP-1300 CAN interface module, engineers can expand the capabilities of CAN-based measurement systems to include reliable distributed input/output (I/O). FieldPoint provides high accuracy, isolated analog and digital I/O modules, adding direct CAN connectivity to virtually any sensor or actuator. With this new CAN interface module users can easily add CAN nodes, containing up to nine I/O modules (144 points) each, to existing CAN networks. The FieldPoint CAN interface module is fully configurable with NI-CAN 2.0 software so engineers can specify arbitration ID and customize I/O data configuration.
