07/23/2009


Saelig Company announces the availability of CANminiBOX, a compact embedded controller for embedded CANbus control applications. The product's 128 MB SD-RAM capacity is sufficient to control the pre-installed Linux OS (QNX or VxWorks are also easily integrated), while 512 MB CompactFlash card storage can easily be upgraded. The unit also offers low power consumption (less than 6W), ensuring the reliability of passive cooling. DIN-rail mounted unit measures 3 in, x 2 in. x 4.7 in. and weighs less than 1 lb.
Made in Europe by Janz AG, a leading industrial control and CANbus manufacturer, each CANminiBOX from Saelig is customizable with additional I/O or CANbus ports, even in small quantities, with design-team hardware and software support at no extra cost. Its guaranteed lifetime of at least five years makes it suitable when designing-in controllers for medical or military and aerospace equipment.
Saelig's CANminiBOX features an AMDÉlan 133MHz SC520 processor with 128 MB internal SD-RAM and 512 MB SD-RAM CompactFlash, with front-panel availability for 10/100MBit/s Ethernet, status LED's, an RS232 serial port, a CAN port, and one USB1.1 port. Units are 10-28VDC powered and designed to operate within an ambient temperature range of 0 to +50° C (+32° F to +120° F). All inputs feature ESD protection of 2kV.
