Certified CANopen FD conformity for I/O products

26-04-2022 | PEAK-System | Subs & Systems

The I/O device on DIN rail PCAN-MicroMod FD DR CANopen Digital 1 from PEAK-System passed the official Ci (CAN in Automation) conformance tests for CANopen and CANopen FD. The device firmware is based on the Micro CANopen Plus protocol stack by the EmSA, gaining easiness stepping through the conformance tests.

The device is one of the first industrial off-the-shelf I/O devices that offer conformance tested CANopen and CANopen FD interfaces. The configuration is simplified, four dials are employed to make the settings which are documented straight on the housing. No additional configuration software is needed.

All other products from the PCAN-MicroMod FD line can load the Micro CANopen Plus protocol stack as an option. There are further aluminium-housed I/O modules supporting analog inputs and outputs, as well as PWM or frequency outputs, and a SoM to integrate customised I/O with CAN/CAN FD, CANopen, and CANopen FD operating modes.

CANopen EDS/XDD files are downloadable for all PCAN-MicroMod FD products documenting the CANopen or CANopen FD functionality. Moreover, the PCAN-MicroMod FD Evaluation Board includes a free CANopen FD license.
