Product Announcement from Carling Technologies, Inc.
The N-Series Addressable Switch from Carling Technologies offers the look and feel of a traditional Electro-mechanical control coupled with a built in PCB to provide a flexible, cost effective alternative to a CAN/LIN based switch.
The N-Series produces up to 144 individual switch IDs by using a resistive ladder circuit. Each switch is connected to an ECU and the application software is written to recognize the switch IDs to determine which load is being controlled as well as the selected actuator position. Switch locations can be rearranged without the need for a costly and time consuming harness redesign, giving ultimate design flexibility.
