Digital Inputs and Outputs

The CAN-CBX-DIO8-FD module offers 8 digital I/O channels, each separately programmable as input or output. The nominal I/O-voltage value is 24 V(DC).
Each channel can deliver a nominal output current of 0.5 A at 24 V(DC).

CAN FD Interface

The CAN FD interface is designed according to ISO 11898-1:2015. Bit rates up to 5 Mbit/s are supported. CAN-CBX-DIO8-FD is fully backwards compatible with Classical CAN and supports bit rates up to 1 Mbit/s.
The CANopen node number and the CAN bit rate can be easily set via coding switches.

Compact I/O Module

The CAN-CBX module series with InRailBus provides industry compatible CAN bus in-/output modules in combination with service-friendly ‘wiring’ of CAN bus and supply voltage.


The power supply and the CAN bus signals can be applied via the InRailBus connector (TBUS-connector) integrated in the mounting rail or separately via the clamp connection. Individual modules can be removed from the InRailBus without breaking the bus signals.

Software Support

The module supports CANopen FD firmware according to CiA 1301 Draft Standard Proposal and the CANopen I/O-profile according to CiA 401-F1 Work Draft.
Alternatively, the CAN-CBX-DIO8-FD can be adjusted via coding switches to be used in Classical CANopen applications according to CiA 301 and CiA 401.
