LIN Bus PC Interfaces
The Baby-LIN-II from Lipowsky Elektronik is a control device that allows you to control LIN-bus equipped devices with the help of a standard computer system. This is controller connects to the USB port of the computer and give you to the freedom to control the LIN Bus directly.
The Baby-LIN-RC-II, just like the standard Baby-LIN, is a USB to LIN-bus converter, with a major difference being the integrated keyboard. This keyboard allows you to run predefined instructions, which are stored in the controller, on any LIN-Bus device connected to the controller.
The Baby-LIN-RC-II can be used stand-alone, having been programmed by a PC.
The Baby-LIN-RM-II is a rail mountable LIN and CAN bus simulator that features digital inputs and outputs. This device serves as a simple and economic solution of adding a LIN or CAN interface to your existing PLC. It works with a standard, off-the-shelf computer system and requires only a USB port to work.
The Baby-LIN-RM-III allows LIN-Bus, CAN-Bus and CAN-FD Bus equipped devices to be controlled by a PC.
The interface can simulate CAN and LIN-Bus Master and Slave nodes
After installation of the supplied LINWorks software, you can connect the Baby-LIN-RM-III to a free USB port, and access the LIN- and CAN-Bus devices via LINWorks or own programs by using the Baby-LIN-DLL. In addition LIN and CAN devices can be controlled using digital signals only. This enhances testing facilities based on a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) by a LIN- or CAN-Bus without much effort.
This can be extremely beneficial for facilities with long term testing.
