M-Flex Remote CAN I/O Controller


This severe duty controller provides 8 configurable inputs and 8 configurable outputs designed to operate on heavy duty equipment. Outputs are capable of driving various types of loads including valves, lights, motors and actuators up to 3A. Closed-loop current control is provided for proportional solenoid valves for sensitive control applications. Configuration is performed through messages sent via the CAN bus or through the use of Marlin’s PC-based configuration software. The controller can also come pre-programmed from Marlin with functionality specific to your application requirements.


  • Designed for severe duty, outdoor mobile applications.
  • Wide operating voltage and temperature (12V and 24V applications).
  • Low power sleep mode – for applications requiring direct-to-battery connection. Wake on digital input, CAN message or cycling power.
  • Configurable inputs and outputs for customizing controller to each application.
  • Outputs have closed-loop current sensing for accurate control of proportional valves.
  • 250/500 Kbps auto baud detect.
  • 5V, 500mA output for powering sensors.
  • Slim, stylish case (custom OEM label option).
  • Fully encapsulated electronics for complete environmental protection.
  • Deutsch DT style connectors.
  • Bi-color status indicators.
  • IP67 and IP69K rated (with appropriate connector boots).
  • RoHS and CE compliant.
  • Multiple programming options:
    • Standard controller programmed as remote I/O module for control by Master Control Unit (MCU) via CAN. 
    • Custom application programming provided by Marlin.
    • Customer programmable via C language.
