Epec displays cutting-edge electronic control modules at ConExpo. 2023
Epec’s stand (N12347) at this week’s ConExpo is showcasing its entire range of sophisticated electronic control units to suit the OEM’s increased need for high-performance systems.
The company’s new products enable highly advanced control systems, electrification systems, assistance and autonomous systems, edge computing and real-time capable applications, steer-by-wire and brake-by-wire systems, and functional safety and mixed-criticality implementations by providing design flexibility and the latest technologies. The three brand-new items are as follows:
Developed control systems with the most stringent real-time control, functional safety, and flexible interface requirements.
It provides a flexible 32-bit functional safety controller with many programming and communication choices, as well as a vast array of programming options for centralized and distributed system architectures: CODESYS, C/C++, CANopen responder, and Ethernet Gateway. It also offers connection for real-time data exchange: CAN, CAN FD, ISOBUS, Ethernet, and safety-critical communication, as well as a broad and versatile I/O interface, I/O up to 54/46, implemented in a housing created in-house that meets essential environmental testing requirements of the client. IP69K
SL8X control unit
Designed for control systems with the most stringent requirements for real-time control, functional safety, and flexible interfaces, the SL8X offers a versatile 32-bit functional safety controller with a variety of programming and communication options, as well as a vast array of programming options for centralized and distributed system architectures: CODESYS, C/C++, CANopen responder, Ethernet Gateway, as well as a connection for real-time data exchange: CAN, CAN FD, ISOBUS, Ethernet, and safety-critical communication.
GC44 Response Unit
Intended for centralized intelligence systems, the FC44 has a generic CANopen responder unit compliant with CiA standards, I/O: 32 (16/16), 2 x CAN, IP69K, and Epec SW & Solution compatibility.
The core unit and control unit will be commercially available in 2024, with samples made accessible in 2023.
