Discover our ZR5-A controller

The central, intelligent and powerful controller with gateway functionality for on-board electronics

As a body controller, the ZR5-A can be expanded with the MUX5-B multiplex nodes and communicate with them via CANs. It also offers an efficient and powerful CAN structure for connecting various instrument clusters and driver's workplaces.

To achieve maximum flexibility, all CAN communication is based on generic objects and interfaces with a flexible data rate. The ZR5-A also offers a central gateway for EOL programming and diagnostics. The application is created by our customers using the model-based programming tool KIBES® LC3. The device is designed in accordance with ISO 26262 and supports application levels up to ASIL B.
