this compact CaN device provides virtually endless data acquisition system expansion options. Channel Expansion hub adds up to four freely configurable analog (or two digital and two analog) channels without occupying or modifying any of the existing system channels. By using advanced CAN technology, wiring is simplified from four cables into just a single connection, thereby reducing possible and unnecessary points of failure. It is also possible -via Data Hub - to connect to the Master as many Channel Expansion as needed.
