The Cust Input Output non safety (CIOn) is a CAN bus-capable, optional expansion module for the vehicle control system. It contains a single-channel I/O interface as well as interfaces for signal distribution and is intended for connecting further sensors and actuators to the vehicle control system.
The input information of the connected sensors is read out by the CIOn2 interface on the CAN bus of the vehicle, and the output information for controlling the outputs is received by the CIOn2 interface via the CAN bus of the vehicle.


Features:

  • CAN bus interface
  • Switchable sensor voltage
  • LED indicator lights for status display
  • Fuses for distribution of 24V on-board voltages incl. diagnostic option

The Power Converter (POC) is responsible for the power supply of electronic devices in vehicles with 24V on-board voltage.
The centerpiece of the power supply is a powerful DC/DC voltage converter for generating a stabilized and galvanically isolated 24V voltage to the battery voltage of the vehicle.
The output voltage of the converter is distributed to several fuse circuits and made available at the component's terminals.

Protection functions of the DC/DC converter:

  • Primary-side overcurrent protection
  • Overvoltage shutdown intermediate circuit (latching)
  • Secondary-side overcurrent protection
  • Secondary-side overvoltage protection
  • Overtemperature protection
