Baby-LIN-MB (8000779) - LIN-Bus Simulation device with RS-232 and Ethernet interface and integrated LIN Logger
Our LIN-bus simulation device with RS-232 and Ethernet interface. A simple ASCII protocol allows easy interfacing to a PLC.
The integrated LIN-bus logger records all commands and LIN frames! This makes troubleshooting a breeze!


  • Linux based system allows for easy adaption of network protocols and remote support options.
  • Multi SDF capable, you can switch between different LIN bus configurations by just loading another SDF form the internal flash drive.
  • Connection to PLC or host system via ethernet connection or RS-232.
  • SDF files or firmware updates are installed on the device by using an USB stick.
  • Base version integrated LIN1, LIN2, CAN-High-Speed, RS-232, LAN interface hardware.
  • Base version supports LIN1 interface (including SDF-V3), LIN2and CAN support can be activated by separate sold activation keys.
  • 2 internal MIF module slots for extension, MIF-LIN-02 module with 2 LIN interfaces allows  a total of 6 LIN lines in one device.
  • Digital input and digital output available.
  • Secure shut down due to integrated USV (15 seconds hold-up time). 
  • Optional compatibility adapter converts new Sub-D-25 connector pinning to 2 * Sub-D-9 connector pinning of Baby-LIN-MB.


Very powerful and inexpensive, package including LINWorks software and DLL for 1480 € plus VAT and shipping for customers inside the EU and 1550 € for customers outside the EU.
