I/O with CANopen and CANopen FD for industrial use

10-08-2020 | PEAK-System | Power

Peak Systems, in partnership with Embedded Systems Academy, has developed an I/O device with CANopen and CANopen FD connection. The PCAN-MicroMod FD DR CANopen Digital 1 has eight digital inputs and eight digital outputs and is provided in a DIN rail housing with Phoenix screw terminal strips.

The inputs comply with the PLC standard DIN EN 61131-2 and have a Type 3 characteristic; they are galvanically isolated in two groups up to 100V from the device supply.

The digital outputs on the high-side switch basis can each be loaded up to 500mA. Mechanisms such as thermal protection, short-circuit detection, and open-load detection improves the reliability of the outputs.

The Node ID and bit rates are set via rotary switches. This enables the device to be set up for use in new CANopen FD and classic CANopen networks without additional configuration software. CANopen conformity has been tested and certified by the CAN in Automation (CiA) association.

The device conformity test and certification for CANopen FD® is pending.
