The CANio 500 enables the easy and quick connection of various analog and digital input and output signals to CAN or CANopen systems – whether in experimental setups, component test stands or vehicles. CANio 500 is a field attachable CAN/ CANOpen I/O device available in multiple configurations as below:

  • Suitable for CANopen and CAN layer 2 networks
  • 4 digital inputs + clamp 15 (between 0 … 34 V, threshold at 50 %)
  • 4 digital outputs, max. 1 A, output voltage free selectable
  • 4 analog inputs, 12 bit res. (0 –  +10V)
  • 4 analog outputs, 12 bit res. (+/- 5 V, or +/- 10 V, or 0-5 V, or 0-10 V, switchable via software)
  • Universal use due to robust design and wide power supply range
  • Easy configuration and versatile configuration options
  • Adaptation to specific requirements via CANio ADK
  • Plug-in version available for direct integration into customer hardware


CANio Configuration Tool

The CANio Configuration Tool, included in the scope of delivery, enables the easy and fast configuration of the CANio 250 and CANio 500 devices. To download the configuration file to the device a CAN interface is required, e.g. USB-to-CAN V2 compact. The range of functions of the Windows software includes:

  • CAN parameter configuration (baud rate, message ID’s, cycle times)
  • Configuration of the digital inputs (interrupt capability, debounce time) and (only CANio 500) of the analog inputs (interrupt capability, delta value)
  • Configuration of the digital outputs (default value) and (only CANio 500) analog outputs (output voltage range, default value)
  • Firmware update
  • Download of the ADK applications
  • Storage of the configuration into a configuration file and import of the configuration file
