I/O module TRS for modern sensors –

Woodworking made easy

Where work used to be mostly done by hand, today automated machines are used, as e.g. in processing wood for house building. This kind of trimming systems is used to machine the components to size. Logistics and handling facilities are naturally part of it.

For a well-known manufacturer, MicroControl provided the solution to interconnect the comprehensive sensor technology of these machines on the basis of its compact µCAN transmitter modules of their TRS family. These modules form the link between analogue sensors and digital CAN networks. The IP67 rated modules can be integrated directly into the measurement lines of temperature and pressure sensors at a short distance from the sensor to minimize interference and save space.

The TRS modules are available for a wide range of different signal types and designed to work reliably in harsh environments. Due to its rugged and compact design and its round casing in stainless steel the module features a high IP67 protection code and is ideally suited for operating temperatures from -40…+85 °C.
