CAN-MD® is a new digital sensing platform for machinery diagnostics. The CAN-MD® platform can coexist and operate within a variety of CAN protocols and if needed, bridges can be sourced to convert to other bus protocols such as Ethernet, RS232/RS485, and ARINC protocols to name a few.  CAN-MD® accelerometers post Condition Indicators (processed features from resident algorithms) on the bus automatically and/or, when instructed.  They can also manually acquire data from one or more of the 63 acquisitions and 127 CI’s, then generate and output that results to the bus.
