Hardware cape for BeagleBone suitable in industrial applications, compatible with machinekit project
Will produce and ship in 3 months
Warning: Last items in stock!
Main interfaces are completely galvanically isolated from BeagleBone micro-computer. Thus, its name - FURaday cape, remembering Faradays cage, BeagleBone Capes and fur of a beagle, which can lay calm even during strongest thunderstorm with such an isolation :)
This cape was designed to control servo amplifiers or VFD's for CNC machines, industrial lines and other automated devices with BeagleBone.
Compatible with machinekit project, but should work with other software systems too.

Cape requires external DC power source, 11V..35V.
Sample machinekit configuration files with simplified HAL names will be added soon.
The cape was tested in harsh conditions:
Functions tested successfully on BeagleBone Black and BeagleBone Green:
No stability problems observed during long testing periods.
Isolated from BeagleBone
|Encoder input||4*||5V logic level inputs, 35ns propagation delay||Yes||* 3 eqep + 1 pru. Or, if HDMI is used, 2 eqep + 1 pru|
