With IPEbutton, Ipetronik offers a compact, smart accessory for its measurement systems. IPEbutton outputs a predefined message to the CANbus once the illuminated push button is pressed.
Depending on the type of the device, it is used to initiate an offset adjust or a shuntcheck for M-SENS and SIM-STG modules. Other applications include send requests to receive signal values from a sensor (“polling”), start a storage group of a data logger configuration and IPEmotion online measurement.
IPEbutton is housed in black powder-coated aluminum enclosure with an IP54 protection rating and dimensions of 50 mm x 50 mm x 25 mm (W x D x H). It requires a voltage supply between 9 VDC and 36 VDC. The trigger button is suitable for an operating temperature range from -40 °C to +85 °C at a relative humidity of 5 to 95 %. Output data is transmitted at up to 1 MBit/s via two CANbus interfaces as defined in ISO 11898-2. Optionally, cables with Lemo connectors are available.
