d5MC is the system's main controller (MC). The MC has a signal processor (DSP) for managing the other units via a CAN Bus to the vehicle, together with an XScale processor for managing communications and the user interface. From the MC, a choice of one, two or three CAN Buses can be run out to various vehicle function receivers or senders. Other dasa5 units are connected at appropriate points.
I/O-unit with 12 individually programmable inputs or outputs. A flexible unit that meets various demans. Inputs for current, voltage, frquency and counter. Outputs PWM for servo valves, digital or analog, max rating 3A.
A unit for translating between external CAN protocol and dasa5. The translation tables are defined in the development tool, stored in d5MC and are uploaded to the respective d5CB at system start. An optional number of the above mentioned units can be specified and connected to the system.
