TTControl will launch new series of intelligent machine controllers at Agritechnica

TTControl has announced the launch of the TTC 2000 series of high performance Electronic Control Units (ECUs) designed from the ground up to meet the needs of intelligent vehicles.

The series consists of complete sets of compatible ECU families with different processing powers, scalable to suit advanced and automated off-road applications. The first member of this series, the mid-size TTC 2300 family, will kick off sales with its first presentation at Agritechnica 2022. Deliveries to customers are expected to begin in June 2022.

With the TTC 2000 series and its TTC 2300 family of ECUs, machine builders are preparing their machines to stand the test of time. The controllers provide complete flexibility to reuse applications on different sizes of machines and for generations of machines to come. The TTC 2000 series products offer scalable building blocks that make the control system expandable as needed to accommodate rapidly changing vehicle technology. The large number of inputs / outputs (I / O) available and the standardized programming interface contribute to this flexibility.

The heart of a centralized vehicle architecture

The robust computers of the TTC 2300 family are designed to be at the heart of a centralized electronic architecture. This can take the form of a vehicle control unit (VCU), a safety monitor, or a main unit controller for agricultural implements. Designed for use in harsh operating environments, the controllers operate in harsh conditions and extreme temperatures.

The ISOBUS compatible TTC 2300 family is TÃœV certified for safety. Each control unit meets the safety standards of the agricultural, construction and automotive industries, among others, which significantly reduces certification costs for vehicle manufacturers. The mixed-criticality approach allows critical and non-critical security code to run on the same CPU without reducing the overall security level. Infineon’s latest high-performance controller processor, the second-generation AurixMT TriCoreMT, guarantees good computing power, even for future mobile machines. Combined with the PXROS real-time operating system for enhanced application development, the product family enables faster time to market.

“The TTC 2300 ECU family stands for high processing power and a wide range of safety certifications,” says Lucian Badescu, ECU Product Manager at TTControl. “This helps automakers introduce innovative safety-related features, reduce the time and cost of testing and validating the end product, and develop advanced architectures for mobile machines. “

Enabling new levels of on-board connectivity
The TTC 2300 controller family is designed for high-speed on-board connectivity and communication with IoT networks. The controllers provide rapid processing of information from analog, digital and intelligent sensors over a wide range of inputs. They enable high-speed communication via Ethernet with other vehicle components, such as gateways for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and cloud-based functions. The TTC 2300 ECU family enables software updates through the standardized Unified Diagnostic Services (UDS) protocol.

Prepared for smart sensors

Smart sensors produce ever-increasing amounts of data to support intelligent machine functions. The TTC 2300 family enables use cases for various automation and assistance systems by providing large internal memory and enabling transmission of sensor data via standardized SENT (Single Edge Nibble Transmission) interfaces.

Ready for precise control of the electric motor
Electrification is a rapidly growing trend that will affect the entire industry. A forward-looking electronic control system must be able to reliably control electric motors in the off-road sector as well. The TTC 2300 does this through the H-Bridge outputs, while managing actuators and sensors for other machine functions in parallel. This not only increases the precision of the machine, but also leads to an electrified and sustainable future for mobile machines.
