Universal Gateway LCL-01

What is the LCL-01?

With its strong processing power, a safe embedded Linux operating system and an extensive number of different interfaces, the LCL-01 is a universal hardware. The LCL-01 can be extended individually by the integrated expansion port.

Two different LCL-01 module versions are offered: On the one hand the universal gateway LCL-01-Lift for use in lifts and ecalators and on the other hand the LCL-SDK as a basis for the development of your own applications (LCL-01 with Software Development Kit).

Extensions

There are different extensions available for the LCL-01. 

LIN-IO board and LIO-01

The LIN interface enables an extension of the LCL-01 by up to 120 inputs, outputs and calls.The LIO-01 module provides 8 freely programmable I/Os. Up to 15 LIO-01 can be directly connected to the LCL-01. The maximum length of the LIN-bus amounts 40 m.

CAN-LIN-IO board CLI-01

If the 120 I/Os of the LIO-01 module do not suffice, additional inputs, outputs and calls can be provided by the two CAN interfaces with the CLI-01 module. Up to 99 CLI-01 boards with 8 freely programmable I/Os each can be connected to every CAN-interface. The number of I/Os of every single CLI-01 can be expanded by up to 15x8 I/Os with the LIO-01 module. Therefor every LCL-01 can be extended by up to 2x100x16x8+120=25720 I/Os.  

RS485-interface RS485-A1

Via the extension module RS485-A1 a RS485-interface for the implementation of proprietary protocols can be provided. The interface module can be connected directly to the LCL-01 board.

LCL-01 for Lifts and Escalators

With its integrated interfaces LAN, USB, LIN and RS485 (optional) the universal gateway LCL-01 is the ideal hardware for use in lifts and escalators. For this purpose different protocols and applications are available, e.g.: 

  • CANopen-Lift - for the connection of sensors, inputs and outputs 
  • LIN - for the cost-effective extension with inputs and outputs
  • Modbus TCP - for the connection to building automation (Scada) or request of escalators
  • VPN - for a safe remote control via internet and connection to the cloud 

For the configuration of the device an easy to operate webfrontend is available. This makes a configuration of different parameters via laptop or smartphone possible without installing a configuration software beforehand. The LCL-01 can be extended easily by applications or implemented protocols via the provided development platform (SDK) and the integrated plugin-system.

This makes the LCL-01 predestinated for different applications in the conveyance and building management sector.

 

LCL-01-SDK with Software Development Kit

With the LCL-01 Software Development Kit we offer you an extensive platform to write your own applications with embedded linux (Yocto) as basis. 

You need help with the development?

ELFIN GmbH also offers software-development for the LCL-01 as an additional service. An adjustment of the hardware by additional interfaces or different type of construction is also possible at any time.

At the moment the LCL-01 can be offered with an embedded ARM processor with 400 MHz (NXP® Vybrid™) and 128 MB DDR3, 128 MB NAND. The prototype group with Vybrid 500 MHz or iMX with 1x1000 MHz or 2x1000 MHz is also available optionally.

The LCL-01 can be easily accommodated to increasing demands, which makes it future-proof and provides you flexibility.
