CAN OUT MiniModules

The OUT MiniModule is a signal output module which generates both analog variables and digital signals. The OUT MiniModule (OUTMM) provides configurable output signals in accordance with a value that has been pre-defined by CAN bus messages. Typical use cases for an OUTMM are test benches with analog display units and actuators, as well as the simulation of parameters in early development stages (HIL testing).

OUTMM provides the following output parameters (galvanically isolated):

  • Voltage
  • Current
  • Frequency
  • Duty cycle/PWM
  • Digital signals

The module can serve the purpose of providing a signal from a missing, or not yet available, electronic control unit or other component. It also provides options to transfer available CAN signals to test benches with only analog measurement inputs. This means any CAN signals that cannot be directly read by a test bench will be first transmitted to an OUTMM and converted into an analog signal. This analog signal from the OUTMM is then transmitted as an input to the test bench.

Key features

OUTMM is available in two versions with either four or eight galvanically isolated output channels. The output channels are controlled by freely definable CAN bus messages and offer high accuracy in every operating mode. Each channel can be configured individually with a refresh rate of up to 1 kHz. OUTMM modules are supported by the vMeasure exp and CANape software tools from Vector Informatik.

Measurement of Analog Voltage from Sensors

Numerous measurement variables in vehicle development and testing can be recorded with sensors that reproduce their respective measured variable as an analog voltage. For example, distance, pressure, flow rates, moisture, vibration and noise can be easily measured.
