The systems DL CAN connect CAN field bus networks (e.g. CAN, CANopen, DeviceNet) via fiber optics. With the help of this innovative system, optical bus, star, tree and mixed structures are possible.
The special multifunctional fiber optic system DL CAN-R also allows the construction of optical ring structures. LEDs and potential-free contacts of a fault detector relay are able to signal defective states. FiberView works similarly to a traffic light. If the “traffic light” is green, everything is fine. If the yellow LED lights, the budget is still tolerable, but already below a certain system reserve. Additionally to the LED, this pre-warning level is also signaled by a potential-free contact. If the “traffic light” turns red there is a serious error.
