IO612: CAN I/O Module

Active CAN module with 4 isolated CAN HS channels

The IO612 I/O module is an active CAN-Bus module with up to four CAN galvanic isolated ports, supporting CAN 2.0A/B messages and HIGH speed CAN communication. Driver blocks for Simulink Real-Time are included.


It also supports the following protocols:


  • 4 galvanically isolated CAN ports over 2x DB9 connectors
  • CAN 2.0A (11-bit identifier) and CAN 2.0B (29-bit identifier) messages
  • High speed mode (ISO 11898-2)
  • On-board microcontroller manages the low-level flow of CAN messages
  • 'Lean' on-board CAN firmware leads to minimal receive and transmit driver block latencies
  • Extensive Simulink Real-Time driver blockset offers a comprehensive set-up block and various receive and transmit blocks supporting FIFO mode and object modes
  • Easy firmware updates: the Setup driver block downloads microcontroller firmware each time a target application is initialized

MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) - MTBF values shown are based on calculation according to MIL-HDBK-217F and MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2; Environment: GB 20°C. The MTBF calculation is based on component FIT rates provided by the component suppliers. If FIT rates are not available, MIL-HDBK-217F and MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2 formulas are used for the FIT rate calculation.
