A programmable Electronic CAN Button Panel designed to operate within a Controller Area Network (CAN). The panel can be custom-configured with four to eight independently controlled illuminated switches. Interchangeable cams allow 1, 2 or 3 positions and detent or momentary action. The cams are designed on a simple snap-in platform that allows for easy and economical assembly and modification. The LEDs can be configured in up to 8 colors with optional laser-etched icons. Dust shield optional. HF-Impulse configuration software can be downloaded at www.hydraforce.com/electronics.
The panel utilizes a patented system of optical interrupters to create a switch output with no electrical contacts within the switch. Cams are interchangeable and include a choice of several position and detent options. Status of each switch position and the display of each LED is communicated through CAN messaging.
