MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD

2021-05-18 • Temperature Measuring Unit with CAN FD Support

The new measuring unit MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD from PEAK-System transmits its temperature measurement data using the modern standard CAN FD. Depending on the product version, eight mini-connectors for thermocouples of the types J, K, or T are available for temperature measurement. The CAN communication is done via a D-Sub connector. The measuring unit supports the CAN FD standard with data bit rates up to 10 Mbit/s and is at the same time downward compatible to classic CAN 2.0 A/B.

With the MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD, temperature measurement can be integrated directly into automotive test benches or industrial plants using CAN FD communication. A router for the conversion from CAN 2.0 to CAN FD is no longer necessary. With support for the extended operating temperature range of -40 to 85 °C and due to its robust aluminum casing, the measuring unit can also be used in harsh environments.  

The configuration of data processing, CAN communication, and LED indication is generated with a user-friendly Windows software and then transferred via CAN to the MU-Thermocouple1 CAN FD. Several devices can be operated and configured independently on a single CAN bus.
