ECU-2434A

Multi-function, programmable controller for off-highway, mobile equipment

Overview

Description

The ECU-2434A electronic controller is a powerful multi-function programmable controller designed to withstand the real-world environmental demands of the off-highway mobile market. With a 16/32-bit CPU, two CAN ports, 65 I/O pins with 24 outputs and 34 inputs, it can be configured in multiple ways. This controller is programmable with CoDeSys 2.3 which you can download from the HydraForce Electronics Portal at no charge. It has a light, leakproof, chemical-resistant aluminum and thermoplastic enclosure, indicator LED, Gore-Tex breather and three AMP35 connectors.

Features

  • CE Certified, complies with WEEE, European Community Directive 2002/96/EC/for waste electrical and electronic equipment, RoHS, European Community Directive 2011/65/EU restricting hazardous substances
  • Reliable operation in real-world temperature conditions
  • Robust, light, leak proof, chemical-resistant aluminum/plastic enclosure
  • Three-point anchorage confirms firm mounting, even on irregular surfaces
  • Inputs and outputs are protected against short circuits
  • Internal diagnostic capability to detect overvoltage and overtemperature conditions
  • Signal LED for quick status check and fault detection
  • Temperature monitoring
  • Two CAN ports
