Vilnius A/D module is a CAN4VSCP based module that have four 10-bit A/D
channels for 0-5V or 0-10V and also have two 5V I/O channels that can be
set as inputs or outputs. General use is to read analog values and as all
other VSCP modules you can get the readings reported automatically with a
user specified period.
It is also possible to report A/D readings as a VSCP measurement linearized
as a floating point value from the formula
measurement = k * A/D-value + m
where k and m are configurable 32-bit floating point constants. You have full
control of which event is sent and which unit is used.
This means you can send out any A/D reading as a real unit such as voltage,
temperature or in any other SI specified unit.
You can also assign alarm limits so that alarm events are sent when the level
goes above a certain value or below a certain value.
Two I/O channels are available. Both can individually be set as inputs or
outputs. ON/OFF or TurnOn/TurnOff events can be sent out when I/O change
The module can be attached to a standard DIN Rail or be mounted directly on
a wall. The mounting enclosures are ordered as separate options when the
module is ordered.
The module fully adopts to the VSCP CAN4VSCP specification and can be powered
directly over the bus cable with a good 9-28V DC power source. This means
there is no need for a separate power cable. VSCP CAN modules are designed to
work on a VSCP4CAN bus which use ordinary RJ-45 connectors or use the daisy
chain pinhead which can be used to connect modules that are mounted close to
each other. For the bus a CAT5 or better twisted pair cable is used. Bus
length can have a total length of 500 meters with drops of maximum 24 meters
length (up to a total of 120 meters). As for all VSCP4CAN modules the
communication speed is fixed at 125 kbps.
All VSCP modules contains information of there own setup, manual, hardware
version, manufacturer etc. When VSCP modules are started up they have a
default functionality that often is all that is needed to get a working
setup. If the module have something to report it will send you an event and
if it is setup to react on a certain type of event it will do it's work when
you send event(s) to it. It does not need to be harder then that.
