CAN Bus Interface Module AP560A

The AP560A Series is an AcroPack® Module that contains four independent CAN Bus Interface Channels. Each channel has a Holt H13111 CAN controller and an ADM3053 transceiver. Giving this design the advantage to transmit, receive and perform message filtering on extended and standard messages.

Ideally used in Avionics, Aerospace, Defence Vehicles, Marine Control & Navigation Systems.

The Acromag AP560A Series is a CAN bus interface module that four independent CAN Bus Channels.

Firstly, the AP560A Series is based on the Acromag AcroPack® product line, which has a PCIe interface format. AcroPack® offers products in a compact size, at a low cost with the same functionality and memory map of existing Industry Pack Modules in a rugged form factor. Also they are RoHS compliant.

Secondly, this module offers an effective solution for avionics and other applications using the CAN 2.0A/B specification. This is because the controller is configured to comply with both ARINC 825 and CAN Aerospace Standards. Due to its high channel density and level of isolation, this module is suited in a variety of challenging environments.

The AP560A modules are 70mm long and only 19.05mm longer than a full length mini PCIe card. It contains a down facing connector which internally routes I/O signals through the carrier card to secure field connectors. Therefore, eliminating loose cables and increasing reliability.
