A PC/104-compliant, dual channel, isolated Controller Area Network (CAN) module with Windows and Linux drivers employs high-speed isolated data couplers and power supplies to provide 1000V protection between the two NXP SJA1000 CAN controllers and the network interface. This makes the PCM-CAN-2-ISO  from WinSystems suitable for operation in high-voltage renewable energy, high-speed industrial control, or unpredictable automotive applications, while it maintains low EMI and low-latency operation. Each CAN channel can provide isolated +5 VDC power or receive isolated +5 to +12 VDC power from the interface for additional flexibility. The +5 VDC power supply includes overvoltage, overcurrent and short-circuit protection. 

The PCM-CAN-2-ISO is compliant with CAN specifications 2.0A (11-bit ID) and 2.0B (29-bit ID). CAN is an industry-standard, serial, asynchronous, multi-master communication protocol for connecting electronic control modules, sensors and actuators in automotive and industrial applications. The PCM-CAN-2-ISO supports transfer rates to 1 Megabit per second and has jumper selectable termination resistors so it can be used in various topology systems. 

WinSystems offers this board in other off-the-shelf configurations. The PCM-CAN-2 is a dual channel, non-isolated unit. The PCM-CAN-1 is a single channel, non-isolated unit. The PCM-CAN-1-ISO is a single channel, isolated unit. Special OEM configurations are possible. All configurations will operate over the industrial temperature range of -40° to +85°C The isolated dual channel PCM-CAN-2-ISO lists for $269, and the non-isolated dual channel PCM-CAN-2 lists for $229.
