Parker IQAN-MC31

Master Controller, Head a Control System, A Subsystem, Or Be Part Of An IQAN Multi-Master System.

Parker’s IQAN-MC31 is a rugged CAN controller with a unique mix of dedicated and flexible I/O for mobile hydraulic equipment. The unit is based on the IQAN-MC3 SIL2 rated controller and uses the same hardware, but with software optimized for higher speed and lower memory consumption.

The MC31 has inputs capable of measuring analog, digital and frequency signals. Much of the I/O may be flexibly configured to meet any system need. It is fully programmable for use in any machine application as a standalone controller, a single bus master with expansion units, or together with other IQAN master controllers.
IQAN-MC31 has 4 CAN-buses to communicate with IQAN modules or other CAN devices (supports SAE J1939, CANopen and other protocols). Equipped with an aluminum housing and environmentally sealed connectors, this controller is designed for the outdoor environment.

The IQAN-MC31 controller performs data logging and has full diagnostic and CAN gateway capability. Machine applications for the MC31 are simple to create with the easy-to-use IQAN programming tools. This makes the IQAN-MC31 master controller a perfect fit for any mobile machine application.
