CAN-X+ is a dual processor system utilising a 32-bit ARM processor for the user interface and grouping control, with a 16-bit processor for process control. Serial drive communication is achieved using a dedicated isolated CAN network, and a drive startup wizard to aid fast commissioning.

CAN-X+ is the next generation of Skycom processor building on the success of the CAN-X system, utilising the latest surface mount technology to improve an established and market proven ILE product. ILE has been producing control systems for the UK market for more than 20 years. We have utilised our knowledge and expertise to create a modern product for today’s market place. Skycom CAN-X+ represents affordable, modern technology developed to be both flexible and reliable.

The controller consists of a main processor board, and a set of CAN nodes that can be distributed throughout the lift installation. The nodes can be situated in the panel, on the car top, and in the lift shaft. The controller and all nodes are fully configurable, and all peripherals connected to the processor via the CAN network are also configurable.
