Powerful CAN Interfaces on PMC Module
The module PMC-CAN/331 uses a 68331 microcontroller which cares for the local CAN-data management. The CAN data is stored in the local SRAM. Security and consistency of data is guaranteed up to 1 Mbit/s.

CAN Interface
The ISO 11898 compliant CAN interfaces allow a data transfer rate of 1 Mbit/s. The CAN interfaces are electrically isolated from the other potentials by optocouplers and DC/DC converters.

Software Support
The board is shipped with software examples in source code for DOS and Windows 3.11. Moreover, software drivers are available for Windows NT and Windows 95/98, VxWorks and LynxOS.

CAN Protocols
Software packages for CAL, CANopen or DeviceNet are available for Windows NT, Windows 95/98 or UNIX systems.
