Reliable CAN Measurement Technology

CAN OUT MiniModules

The OUT MiniModule is a signal output module for generating analog variables. 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

Thus, the module can simulate not yet existing control units and output signals to actuators. It also provides options to transfer available CAN signals to test benches with only analog measurement inputs. This means, a CAN signal which - due to a lack of digital signal inputs - cannot be directly fed into a test bench will be first transmitted to an OUTMM and converted into an analog signal. This analog signal will then be transmitted to the analog signal input of the test bench.

Key features

Depending on the device version, an OTUMM features 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 data acquisition software vMeasure CSM.

Measurement of analog voltage from sensors

Regardless of whether it involves measurements of oil circuit pressure, the flow rate in the cooling circuit or a vehicle's ground clearance, many sensors convert their respective measured quantity into an analog voltage which can be processed in one of CSM's analog measurement modules.
