The main application of FlexIO-S Analog is to evaluate voltages and to send the measured values to the CAN bus. However, FlexIO-S Analog can also recreate voltages of up to ±10 V and supply sensors. For communications purposes, the device hardware comes with CAN, LIN, SENT and USB interfaces (LIN and SENT on demand). Two interfaces with two sing-ended inputs each as well as two differential analog inputs are available. Each analog interface also has a sensor supply of 5 V and an analog output. With a large supply voltage range, FlexIO-S Analog is suitable for on-board networks from 12 V to 48 V. The analog inputs’ measuring range can be configured independently:
the 4 single-ended inputs from ±15 V up to ±60 V and the four differential inputs from ±0.25 V up to ±10 V. The analog outputs can be adjusted from 0-5 V up to ±10 V.
- 4 configurable measuring inputs for voltages up to ±60 V
- 4 differential measuring inputs with 50 V common-mode range
- 2 analog outputs up to ±10 V
- Supply voltage of 6 V to 60 V
