ECU-2415A

General purpose machine controller for off-highway, mobile equipment

Overview

Description

The ECU-2415A Electronic Controller is a general-purpose programmable controller designed to withstand the real-world environmental demands of the off-highway mobile market. The ECU-2415A can be used as a stand-alone controller, or for integrating into a CAN network with other devices.

The controller has 49 flexible I/O pins consisting of digital, analog, and pulse inputs, and up to 24 high-side PWM or digital outputs with current measuring feedback. All outputs are capable of driving up to 3.0 Amps.

Notes

Refer to Input/Output table configuration capability. Refer to ECU-2415A Technical Reference Guide for specific data and ratings of individual inputs and outputs.

ECU-2415A is a direct replacement for ECU-2415. It is necessary to convert the CoDeSys program for replacement.

Features

  • Advanced electronic design for reliability and accuracy.
  • Reliable operation in real-world temperature conditions
  • Fully-sealed, compact cast-aluminum housing.
  • Inputs and outputs are protected against short circuits.
  • Outputs have diagnostic capability.
  • No external cooling or heat dissipation required.
  • Programmed with CoDeSys.
