Baby-LIN-RM-III (8000839) - a combined LIN- and CAN-Bus simulator with digital inputs and outputs
The first Baby-LIN with CAN-FD support (FD = Flexible data rate) for the DIN rail. LIN- and CAN-bus simulation device with 8 digital inputs and 6 digital outputs.
A simple and economic solution to add a LIN- or CAN-interface to your PLC.
Perfect to upgrade existing test equipment.
Thanks to the new enhanced macro feature in SDF V.3, many applications can be implemented without using a PLC.
This keeps your budget low and your boss happy!
  • LIN- and CAN-bus controller for the DIN rail.
  • Supports the LIN-bus versions 1.2, 1.3, 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2, as well as CAN-FD, CAN-High-Speed and CAN-Low-Speed busses.
  • Digital inputs and outputs (8 In, 6 Out) allow control of a LIN or CAN device by PLC.
  • Three analog inputs allow even more connectivity.
  • In addition, the unit has 2 buttons, each button can be assigned to any bus command.
  • In a few minutes you can configure a complete LIN- or CAN-bus control via digital inputs from an LDF or DBC file.
  • Output states can be controlled by bus signal values.
  • Ideal for retrofitting and modernization of test beds for new control units with LIN- or CAN-bus interface.
  • Compact module for DIN rail mounting. 75 x 132 x 38mm (H x B x T).
  • Galvanically isolated LIN- and CAN-bus interface to avoid problems in noisy environment.
  • Supply: about 8 - 34 VDC (typically 24 volt).
  • LINWorks PC-software for Windows.
Use one program suite for all Baby-LIN models!
  • Baby-LIN library for Windows and Linux.
    Create your own custom applications.
  • The device is available in different configuration levels.
The basic unit already includes all hardware interfaces and software support for LIN communication (SDF v.2.x files).
  • Expandable with unlock codes to support SDF-V3 LIN functions, as well as support for the two CAN interfaces.
  • The following optional voucher codes should be considered:
