Flexible I/O module for mobile use

June 10, 2011 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
System provider for mobile automation Jetter AG (Ludwigsburg, Germany) has launched a data I/O module intended for use in vehicles and mobile machinery.

The robust and flexible device can be operated at a voltage of 8 to 32 VDC and at a temperature of -40 to +85 °C. Degree of protection IP68 is achieved in its robust aluminum casing. All signals are sent to a 70-pin connector. The device has 16 digital inputs and outputs (positive switching) and 5 digital inputs (positive/negative switching).

t further comprises one analog output, four analog inputs, two frequency inputs up to a maximum of 10 kHz, three PWM outputs and an H-bridge. Additionally, the JXM-IO-E02 module has three tristate inputs and two outputs to supply switches. It is controlled via a CANopen interface. The module is used in construction machinery, agricultural machinery, fire-fighting vehicles, municipal vehicles and rail vehicles.
