    is it possible to connect a CAN Shield to the Controllino in any way (SPI etc.)?

    I need to have CAN Bus with that system…

    Thank you :)

    yes, you can access the SPI at the pinheader at the top of the CONTROLLINO. So, you should not order the “PURE” variant :)

    When you will be looking for a shield – choose the one which is 5 V compatible. When it is declared that it works (from performance point of view) with Arduino UNO, then it will work fine with CONTROLLINO MINI, when it is declared that it works fine with Arduino MEGA, then it will work fine with Arduino MAXI or MEGA.

    Let us know about the progress!

    Thanks, you have pointed out some excellent points.

    This is actually the kind of information i have been trying to find.

    Any plans to make a CAN (for my needs, J1939 compatible) compatible Controllino or at least a din-rail-mountable sidecar? The industrial form factor is appealing, but if I have to budge an arduino shield next to it, kinda ruins it. Thanks!

    did anything happen in the meantime with CAN Bus compatibility / integration?

    Or at least recommendations for CAN Bus shields?

    I would need it for a current project. I use an Controllino Maxi Automation.

    Thanks for you replies!
