The QuantumX MX471 CAN bus module allows the simultaneous integration of up to four CAN networks into the QuantumX data acquisition system and can be expanded as required. The module, combined with analog measurement modules, is ideally suited for use in mobile vehicle tests and as a measurement gateway in test benches.
Owing to its modular approach, any number of CAN nodes can be simultaneously integrated and any number of CAN signals can be acquired.
The module’s powerful Gateway Mode allows up to 200 analog or digital input signals to be transmitted to the test bench control system or any data recorder. This enables the QuantumX to be integrated as a stand-alone system. Additionally, the messages can be split up, as required, and reassembled, for instance, to set up a CAN-2-CAN gateway.
With the channel in the Recorder Mode, any number of signals, such as vehicle speed, steering wheel position or brake command can be acquired simultaneously with the analog CAN bus inputs and used, for instance, to trigger data storage and data analysis. All the acquired signals can also be output in real time (analog or digital, for instance, EtherCAT).
