Booth SL80201 – CAN in Automation
More intelligence and less installation space are topical subjects in the construction machinery industry today. The smart and compact power distribution system SCS200 allows decentralised control and monitoring of loads via the CAN bus.
- Enhanced reliability and connectivity through diagnostic functions and CAN connection
- Reduction of wiring time through plug-and-play design
- Space-savings through a compact IP66/IP67-rated housing
The flexible and compact SCS10, SCS20 and SCS30 CAN controllers allow expansion of an existing CAN network quickly and easily. The products can be simply plugged into industry standard vehicle sockets without additional wiring. E-T-A CAN controllers can be configured using a graphical programming environment. In addition to the definition of CAN messages, a large number of logical links and time functions are available. The first steps into the CAN world will be easy with the SCS family and E-T-A's support.
Power solutions begin with an understanding of the customer’s requirements. From concept to production, E-T-A is equipped with the expertise and tools necessary to develop, produce, and test power solutions that meet and exceed the specifications of the customer’s application. Each project is managed through our ISO certified product development process to ensure the highest level of quality through all stages of the design cycle. With a comprehensive design team and vast design capabilities available E-T-A power solutions are comprised of three major disciplines:
E-T-A uses professional 3D CAD software to provide complex and efficient housing design, connection technology, cable management, busbar design, and power circuit protection design and switching. Computational Flow Dynamic (CFD) software is used to analyze designs that may be deployed in harsh environments to ensure extended life of the product and quality.
Utilizing the latest state of the art technology, E-T-A provides printed circuit board design and layout, user interfaces, and various processes for connecting components on the printed circuit board such as Press-fit technology, THT soldering (selective or wave soldering), and SMT soldering.
Smart distribution requires a complex software layer for monitoring and control. E-T-A uses operating systems such as Linux and programming languages Python, C++, etc. to design effective networks for the monitoring and control layer. CAN bus, PROFINET, Modbus, Ethernet/IP, ELBUS are several communication standards that E-T-A designs into our products.
