Microcontrollers, modules and safety controllers

We offer you a high-performance program of controllers that can be quickly configured to your requirements. The best examples are the PLUS+1™ microcontrollers, which are the brains behind the intelligent machine control. Of course with CAN-based communication for modern networking.


PLUS+1™ Microcontroller

CAN-based PLUS+1 microcontrollers are the brains behind intelligent vehicle control. Swiftly programmable to your specific requirements.

Our powerful PLUS+1 microcontrollers bring intelligence to every node of a distributed control system. And they are equally effective for stand-alone control in smaller machines. Thanks to their rugged design, they’ll withstand the toughest conditions your machines comes up against.

Features and benefits:

  • High speed DSP technology to process even the most complex applications.
  • 6 I/O configurations in 4 housing sizes and nine total I/O configurations for multiple control options – the building blocks for almost every function.
  • CAN-based communications for state-of-the art networking.

PLUS+1™ I/O Modules

Expand the capabilities of your vehicle control system with our CAN-based Input/Output modules. These stackable microcontroller add-ons integrate new control functions smoothly and effectively.

Designed to extend the functionality of our PLUS+1 microcontrollers, they can be configured to match your exact input and output requirements.

Features and benefits:

  • 12 and 24-pin housings with five possible configurations.
  • Suitable for the control system needs of your entire machine range, from simple to sophisticated.

PLUS+1™ Safetycontrollers

Flexible, powerful and functional safety compliant Danfoss Safetycontrollers join the portfolio of PLUS+1™ Compliant components. Dual microprocessors provide enhanced performance, larger memory, and redundant control of outputs for safety function applications.

The three Safetycontrollers variants help machine manufacturers meet European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and are designed to achieve SIL 2 (Safety Integrity Level 2 according to IEC 61508) and PL-d (Performance Level d per ISO 13849-1) standards, with third-party certification pending.

Features and benefits:

  • Larger memory capacity
  • Higher environmental performance
  • Enhanced input/output flexibility
  • Smart digital inputs
  • Increased operating temperature
  • PWM output frequency increase to 20,000 Hz
  • Separate PWM frequencies for each output
  • Configurable sensor power from 3 to 12 volt
  • Low power mode
  • Low supply voltage (7 volts) stays running through engine crank
