Push button with CANbus output

March 16, 2011 // By Julien Happich
The IPEbutton from Ipetronik outputs a predefined message to the CANbus once the illuminated push button is pressed. Depending on the type of IPEbutton, it is used to initiate an offset adjust or a shuntcheck for the company’s M-SENS and SIM-STG modules.

Other applications include send requests to receive signal values from a sensor ("polling"), start a storage group of a data logger configuration and IPEmotion online measurement. The device is housed in a black powder-coated 50x50x25mm aluminium enclosure with an IP54 protection rating.

It requires a voltage supply between 9 and 36 VDC. The trigger button is suitable for an operating temperature range from -40 to +85°C at a relative humidity of 5 to 95 %. Output data is transmitted at up to 1 MBit/s via two CANbus interfaces as defined in ISO 11898-2. Optionally, high quality cables with Lemo connectors are available.
