PSC5-CAN Data Sheet PSC5-CAN

PSC4-CAN und PSC5-CAN modules enable simultaneous acquisition of 4 and 5 differential pressures. Each pressure channel has its own reference pressure port. Since the data is transmitted via CAN bus nearly any number of modules can be connected in series. Thus, experimental scenarios with an extremely high number of pressure tapping points are realisable:

The compact design makes it possible to position the device close to the pressure tapping points. In this way attenuation of the pressure signal due to long tube distances can be minimised.

Our "bigger" pressure scanner with up to 24 channels can be equipped with CAN bus as well. 


  • data is transmitted via CAN bus (CAN 2.0A or CAN 2.0B)
  • sample rate up to 500Hz
  • large voltage supply range (7-24V)
  • the PSCx-CAN modules can be cascaded with a M8 sensor cable
  • the sensor is supplied with a DBC-file containing calibration data
  • simple configuration of the CAN parameters via USB interface
  • for diagnostic purposes measurement data can be read out via USB as well
