The SNAP-SCM-CAN2B is a high-speed serial communication module for acquiring data from generators, motors, sensors, actuators and other industrial devices connected to a Controller Area Network (CAN). With this unit, industrial engineers can incorporate data from CAN devices into their control application just like the analog, digital and serial I/O signals received from other SNAP I/O modules installed on the I/O rack. The product is used with Company's SNAP PAC System, which includes programmable automation controllers (PACs) and Ethernet-based I/O systems, which are used with PACs as well as with PC-based control applications. The unit has one input for receiving data from devices on a CAN network; this module does not transmit. This unit is optically isolated from the equipment and devices it connects to, as well as from other modules on a shared I/O rack.
