Software Features

  •   CAN and RS485 Keypad Addresses - Assign any valid CAN (J1939) address to the keypad while also assigning the same or a different RS485 address. Communicate on either BUS simultaneously.

  •   CANopen Communication Protocol - Fully compliant with Device Profile 401d.

  •   J1939 Address Claim Transmission – Keypads no longer have to be pre-programmed to a specific address. This enables customers that work in applications in the field without access to a GUI to use any replacement keypad on-hand. The keypad can be configured to automatically announce its address and accept a new address assignment as appropriate.

  •   Event Status Transmission - The keypad can send messages to the BUS indicating a button press event or a button release event has occurred. This confirmation allows digital systems to have the same input acknowledgements as that of the latching positions of a mechanical switch.

  •   Periodic Status Transmission - The keypad sends a continuous broadcast of messages indicating the press or release status of each button at that instance. The frequency of these messages but can be adjusted in a wide range.

  •   Periodic Heartbeat - The keypad sends a continuous broadcast of messages to indicate it is still functioning correctly. The frequency of these messages can be adjusted in a wide range.
