The MX471 CAN bus module from HBM features four independent CAN bus interfaces and is designed for integration into the QuantumX universal measurement system.

This enables CAN messages to be synchronously acquired and stored for all analogue 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 behaviour.

The MX471 is designed to complement the QuantumX to provide the user with a flexible system that is simple to operate and 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 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 said to be straightforward 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, can make use of the MX471 CAN bus module.

HBM UK Ltd
