Electronic Control Unit

The Greeve Electronic Control Unit (ECU) is a generic module designed to be easily programmed to offer real-time control and automation of electro-mechanical systems. The unit can interface to a variety of system data sources and discrete sensors to measure the operational parameters and provides control via digital and PWM high-current outputs. The ECU is designed to operate in harsh environments and reliably operate over long periods of time.

In standard format it includes six channels of 0-10v 12 bit analogue input (options for input filter frequency and sensitivity are available). The Digital inputs are opt-isolated and will switch above 5v DC (max 18v). Two of the channels can be used to measure pulse/frequency inputs up to 50KHz.

The outputs are fully protected and provide 4A/ch 12v switched or PWM output. Channels can be paralleled for higher current drives.

The ECU will operate from 7v to 18vDC (higher voltage versions available) and is protected against reverse polarity connection, load dump, and high voltage spikes.

As well as the option detailed here, the ECU is fully compatible with the Greeve Networked Power Control System and can interface directly with the Greeve Remote Interface Nodes (RINs) to expand digital and analogue sensing and power switching.
