Würth Elektronik ICS 6 Way Symbol Cluster CAN

Friday, 15 January, 2021 | Supplied by: Wurth Electronics Australia Pty



Würth Elektronik ICS has released a compact and easy-to-install symbol cluster with a customisable front-end design. It can be used in commercial vehicles and mobile machines for indication of a vehicle’s signals or additional functions.

Measuring 24 x 97 x 20 mm and weighing ~20 g, the compact CAN module fits easily into small vehicle or machine cabs. It can be operated in a voltage range of 8 to 32 VDC, and requires between 25 and 100 mA when in full use. With an operating temperature range of -30 to +80°C, the module offers six LEDs, a digital ‘low side’ output and a digital input; all are freely addressable from the CAN bus. Due to the use of polyester membrane as a front layer, the symbols and colours can be customised on demand.

The CAN-based symbol cluster can be configured using the WE Flasher Tool, a configuration application from Würth Elektronik ICS which is used to upload the settings onto the device. Boot-up LED activation, CAN timeout behaviour and LED dimming/activation are amongst of the parameters that can be set. The 150 mA low-active output could be used to mute audio systems, activate buzzers or backlight a rocker switch. The product can be easily integrated into an existing CAN network using available signals or used as a slave to an electronic control unit (ECU).

With a fully programmable CAN communication with an 11- or 29-bit identifier, a freely configurable bit position for LED control and a selectable bus speed of 100/125/250/500/1000 Kbps, the display module is suitable for a wide variety of applications. An MPC3 connector with a mechanical lock on the back of the module enables a robust connection.
