IX32, Power distribution module

High power input/output and power distribution for CAN J1939 systems

The Murphy PowerCore™ IX32 module is an advanced CAN-based I/O device, providing extensive inputs, outputs and power distribution for control systems and displays. The IX32 provides a superior alternative to existing, failure-prone electromechanical relay and fuse-based solutions. Solid-state switching and overload protection is used throughout, with no moving parts in a completely encapsulated case.

The IX32 is configured and controlled by CAN messages, typically from a PowerView display programmed with Murphy's PowerVision Configuration Studio™. Flexible I/O configuration allows total integration of switches, sensors, actuators and loads into CAN-based vehicle/machine display, control and message systems.

IX32 modules can be located close to sensors and loads, remote from a central CAN display/controller: the simple 4 wire power and CAN connection gives not only improved reliability, but also reduces wire harness material, labour and fault finding costs.

The 12 outputs offer higher power ratings than other available control & I/O solutions. Outputs can be configured for simple on/off, pulse width modulated (PWM) or 6 H-bridge pairs for bi-directional motor control, and can be monitored for improved feedback and diagnostics. 8 analogue and 12 digital inputs (2 dedicated to CAN address setting) allow extensive sensor measurement and conversion to CAN data.

Physically, the IX32 uses a fully sealed and potted case with field-proven Deutsch connectors for superior performance in the most adverse environments. The unit is intended for use in conditions where reliable operation is crucial, extreme temperature variations are common, high shock and vibration levels exist, and where electromagnetic interference (EMI) is normal.

The compact housing simplifies mounting in tight areas and eases harness installation through reduced wiring. Model IX321224 can be powered from either 12 or 24 V DC supplies.
