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

andyr 4 years ago in Other • updated by Ash 4 years ago 4
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 8 months ago in Other • updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 4 days ago 1

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?

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



Paul Lang 9 months ago in Other 0

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) 2 years ago in Other • updated 9 months ago 1

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

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.

SV camera extension cable

C. Harp 8 months ago in Other 0

I have an issue where the camera drops out when i run an extension ethernet cable between an SV camera and an MD4. My extension cable does meet Ethernet standards for twisted pair. Any suggestions are appreciated with helping to resolve this.

HBC Receiver (XR)

Kraige 8 months ago in Other • updated 8 months ago 4

I have come across an old machine that has a HBC Remote Receiver which is connected into an MDL2 system using the XR expansion module. The proportional Inputs from the remote are configured as Voltage In and from the view point of the IQAN system operate from 0 to 5 volts so every time the proportional paddle is moved to full stroke in either direction a system generated error is produced and the input is turned off. Has anyone come across this problem is there a simple solution. The HBC suppliers say that can't change or scale the outputs from the receiver.
