LINAK Australia has introduced the new SAE J1939 CAN bus control for
LA36 actuators as an all-in-one package solution. With this well-known bus
standard, the user doesn’t need to customise electronics to use linear actuator
movement in their CAN bus system.
Actuators with built-in CAN bus control offer simple installation and can
adjust to fit a wide range of heavy-duty machinery in agriculture and
construction. Control systems and actuators with CAN bus can also easily communicate
directly to each other with increased connectivity and live data.
The SAE J1939 CAN bus control also allows users to check the position of
actuators, monitor their diagnostic feedback such as voltage, temperature and
other conditions, and coordinate the movement of several actuators in the
A LINAK actuator with CAN bus control allows uncomplicated integration
with machines thanks to its simple wiring. It also provides high control with
live data, and increased flexibility for adapting the same actuator to fit
various types of applications.
CAN bus is available as a new bus option of the LA36 Integrated
Controller (IC) platform.
