analogue (0-10 V or 4-20mA) output from iqan

andyr 9 years ago in Other updated by Jos Lentfert 7 months ago 11
would the software designers consider adding standard industrial analogue outputs (0-10VDC and/or 4-20mA etc) as outputs options aswell as the existing current outputs to enable interfacing to external third party hardware- only option at present is to do this via third party CAN to analogue converter modules via CANopen

SV Camera - Flip/Mirror adjustable through function

Jason 5 years ago in Other / SV updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 4 years ago 3

Is it possible to make the Flip and Mirror options for the SV camera adjustable via a function on the MD4 master? 

We have an application where we use the SV as a reverse camera, but the operator can rotate his seat 180° (the screen (MD4-7) is mounted to the seat) so we need to mirror the screen when facing the other direction. We have a proxy (digital input) to tell when the seat is rotated.


Any plans for J1939 I/O distribution blocks with deutsch connectors similar to Murr xtremeDB?

Units not included in Design 6

Richard 5 years ago in Other updated by Ken Larsen 5 years ago 1

Just installed Design 6 and exploring the modules I noticed that some units we currently use such as, MC2, MD3, XA2, XS2 and MC3 are no longer included, when are these items going to be removed from sale? 

I obviously will not include them in any new designs but I was just wondering this as we have quite a few machines in production with these units going forward.

I'm looking for information on IQAN-MG units product no. 5010001. Are these units set up differently for 12v or 24v or does one unit do both 12 and 24? If they are different units, how is that differentiated in the product number? If they are the same unit how is the Maximum output determined? Is it done during the programming?

Thanks for any information!


usb can interface

National Instruments are phasing out the USB-8473 connector and  recommending the  USB-8502 unit as a replacement, has anyone verified that this unit will work with IQAN?


Pump Control Module for eP2 piston pumps

Gustav Widén (System support) 6 years ago in Other updated 5 years ago 1

Our colleagues at Parker in Germany has released a Pump Control Module based on the IQAN-MC41, for the P2 pump series. 

Image 923Image 924

The Pump Control Module (PCM) is a pre-programmed stand-alone module that acts as a dedicated pump controller with either analog or J1939 commands. 

As it is based on an IQAN module, adjustments and measure is available via IQANrun over CAN. 

To ease integration in an IQAN system, an IQANdesign 5 plug-in module implementing the J1939 interface to the module is being developed.

Wireless transmission of SV camera feed?

Kevin 10 months ago in Other / SV 0

Has anyone had experience of wirelessly transmitting the camera feed between SV and MD4 using ethernet bridge or another method?

We have a customer that wishes to have a SV in a remote location a few hundred meters away from the screen and wireless is preferred due to the environment. I understand there would be an increase in latency but we can live with that.


Cable numbers

Marcel 2 years ago in Other 0

We see on fairly regular basis lately that the cables we order are not correct. The numbers on the cables do no correspond with the pin number in the connector.

We use the:

Cable kit MC41 C1

Iqan DTM06-12 A cable MD3/4

Iqan DTM06-12 B cable MD3/4

Hope you can fix this issue and deliver good quality cables in the future. It costs a lot of time wondering why something doesn't work because the wrong cable is connected
