ECU-3233A

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

Overview

Description

The ECU-3233A 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 32-bit CPU and four CAN ports, the 65 flexible I/O pins can be configured in multiple ways. It has a light, leak proof, chemical-resistant aluminum/plastic enclosure, indicator LED, Gore-Tex breather and three AMP35 connectors. It is programmable with CoDeSys 2.3, which you can download from the HydraForce Electronics Portal at no charge.

Features
