Yantrr INDU ModBus/Canbus Cape

Yantrr INDU series of capes provide the capability of interfacing with sensors and instruments using RS232/422/485 & CAN. These capes are designed to industrial grade I/O interface standards assuring reliable operation and protection in extreme operating environments. The electronics on the capes has been tested to be in compliance with strict EU standards for radiated and conducted emissions.

Utilizing Modbus and Canbus protocols, these capes transform VIBE/VIBE2 IoT platform into powerful SCADA & process control systems. INDU capes are also fully compatible with BeagleBone CPU platform.

Models with integrated wide-range 15W isolated DC-DC conversion electronics allow operation of the system from battery based industrial systems and solar panels.
