CANopen is an open standard for networking process control systems using the ISO 11898 CAN interface. It is basically a way to read or write data to or from I/O devices or displays using pre-defined object dictionaries.
Our ESX family of controllers is fully compatible with any CANopen system and will readily act as a master or slave for any such system. In addition, several of our other products, including our I/O modules and CAN pressure sensors are designed as ready-to-use nodes to expand the I/O capabilities of any CANopen system.
Libraries are available to manage all CANopen communication with our devices for both CoDeSys and C.
