The PCM-3680I is designed for connecting control units and transmissions in automation applications. CAN enable’s real-time data transmission and error detection. Even when errors accidentally occur, CAN networks will automatically repeat transmissions, drastically reducing data loss and providing higher levels of security. Furthermore, the PCM-3680I features an optical isolation protection of 2,500 VDC which ensures system reliability by protecting data against damage.

The PCM-3680I comes with a standard PCI-104 interface that makes it a desirable solution under imperfect circumstances, such as the presence of shock or vibration. Compared with other methods of connection, a stackable design offers PCM-3680I more reliable connections with other PC/104 modules. Besides seamless connections, PCI-104 interface helps increase the convenience of function extension.

Other features include: LED indicated transmit/receive status on each port, high operating temperature range of -40 ~ 85° C, supports Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Linux. Also, the I/O address automatically is assigned by PCI PnP and supports DLL library with examples included.
