CAN-MD Sensors

CAN−MD® is a radically new sensing approach designed for ease of integration to next–level data management systems, whether onboard of off–board.

CAN−MD® sensors contain µprocessors to reduce and process the wide bandwidth raw dynamic data into useable outcomes (called Condition Indicators) for easy transmission over a standard CAN bus.

The end result: better front–end sensor suite management.

CAN-MD Sensors use analogue sensing elements.  So we receive the high quality signal fidelity and low signal to noise ratio available in today’s high–end sensors.  However, they transmit the results as CAN frames at the normal bus rate eliminating the possibility of overload. The CAN-MD Sensors only pass along the outcomes.  Therefore, creating a powerful new type of sensing system.

CAN-MD Sensors

The CAN-MD Accelerometer was made to provide a standalone vibration sensor.  Firstly it measures, conditions, digitises, processes and communicates data directly from the sensor itself.  Therefore, providing distributed significant data reduction.  Finally, the bus based nature of this sensor provides a reduction in cable mass compared to a typical analogue system.
