ModuCop I/O Modules

Every application in the field is unique and requires different interfaces. The edge computer must also adapt to this. Where a well-equipped basic computer is not enough, modular extemsion modules allow flexible add-ons.

You can expect a flexible portfolio of fieldbus and communication interfaces such as CAN, serial interfaces, Ethernet and MVB as well as discrete binary and analog inputs and outputs.

Tailor to your needs.

Discrete Input and Output

You need to acquire analog data from external systems, e.g. from analog sensors?

Or do you need the possibility to control digital switching elements or to react to their changes?

Then simply configure the IOU01 extension into your ModuCop.

IOU01

The ModuCop extension for rail compliant digital and analoge inputs and outputs.

Product Features

  • Single Slot ModuCop extension unit
  • 2x2 digital inputs / outputs (selectable) via 4-pin spring terminal
  • 0..110V (nom), common ground
  • 2x1 analoge input via 4-pin spring terminal
  • Galvanic isolation of all inputs and outputs (4 isolation groups)
  • Selectable voltage (+/-10V) or current (0..24mA) type
  • 24V supply to external sensor
  • intelligent micro controller abstracts I/O functionality and offloads ModuCop CPU

Ethernet

To connect our intelligent sensors and converters, simply use additional Ethernet interfaces. Power supply for the external components by PoE included.

Even without sensors, Ethernet interfaces you never have enough!

IOU02

4 port gigabit ethernet switch for easy connection and supply of Eth-based sensors.

Product Features

  • Single Slot ModuCop extension unit
  • 4x 1 GBit/s Ethernet (switch) via 8-pol M12 x-coded
  • PoE Power-over-Ethernet (PSE) IEEE 802.3af *
  • Smart managed

*PoE power budget depends on selected ModuCop power supply (PSU0x)

Feldbus Sniffer for Rail

In order to record existing vehicle data, it is essential to tap the data from the vehicle bus. However, direct intervention may request a vehicle re-certification. Any data acquisition must therefore be completely free of retroactive effects.

With the concept of listen-only with purely capacitive coupling, our sniffer interfaces do not influence the electrical characteristics of the vehicle buses.

You can listen in without any worries!

 

IOU03

None-retroactive MVB interface prevents costly re-certification processes

Product Features

  • Single Slot ModuCop extension unit
  • 1x MVB Listen only - pure capacitve coupling via 2x 9-pol Dsub (male / female)
  • 1x CAN listen only - pure capacitve coupling via 1x 9-pol Dsub (male)
  • or alternatively
  • 1x RS485 listen only - pure capacitve coupling via 1x 9-pol Dsub (male)
  • galvanic isolation
  • integrated micro controller abstracts I/O functionality and offloads ModuCop CPU

Communication is Everything

Data acquisition in buses or trains always means being able to connect to a wide variety of existing vehicle systems. Common interfaces are CAN and serial interfaces.

With the IOU04 you find a simple possibility to upgrade the basic computer with these interfaces.

IOU04

Connect existing sub-systems? Very simple with serial interfaces and CAN

Product Features

  • Single Slot ModuCop extension unit
  • 1x CAN up to 1 Mbit/s via 9-pol-Dsub (socket)
  • SW-configurable for listen-only mode
  • 2x RS232/422/485 via 9-pol-Dsub (socket)
  • SW-selectable
  • Galvanic isolation per interface
  • intelligent Microcontroller abstracts I/O functionality and offloads ModuCop CPU

Roadmap

With ModuCop, we offer a product family that is unrivaled in its flexibility and modularity. The modularity allows us to constantly expand the family with partial developments; in its functions, but also in its performance and actuality. Obsolescence is practically excluded.

ModuCop is not a product – it is a family! Due to continuous development you benefit from the latest processor technologies and constantly growing input/output extensions in an always compatible form factor. Combine the required interfaces with the desired computer performance in your applications and get the optimal composition for your project. No matter if in bus or train! The corresponding Linux Microservices Platform grows with the functions of the hardware as a matter of course.

The best answer to obsolescence!
