The ERbic MAX CAN Switch Connector, from Erntec , designates the metal version with axial cable outlet.
A special feature of the ERbic MAX CAN Switch Connector is the robust diecast metal housing, making it ideal for applications in rough environments, where EMC requirements are strict.
The axial cable outlet on the ERbic MAX CAN Switch Connector is positioned in the mating direction.
This achieves a narrow, space-saving, slimline form, as is required in applications where two fieldbus interfaces need to be on top of each other. The print terminals with screw terminations allow for CAN bus cables with sizes from 0.14mm2 (AGW34) up to 1.0mm2 (AWG 18) with a cable diameter of maximum 8.0mm.
The ERbic MAX CAN Switch Connectors includes an integrated external switch by means of which the termination can be switched on or off.
When a CAN network is extended, the ERbic MAX CAN Switch Connector, in which termination is active, can simply be switched to the node version without termination.
For purposes of error diagnostics at a particular bus device it is possible to terminate the bus and to decouple the following device. This switch is recessed from the outline of the housing, protecting it against accidental operation.
