I/O modules for CANopen
CANopen as protocolCANopen is an open client-server protocol for CAN (Controller Area Network) in automation technology. The CANopen protocol uses the CAN bus as transmission medium. In addition to network management, the protocol supports device monitoring and communication. The data exchange of the CANopen standard has been specified as European standard (EN 50325-4) since 2002.
Analog and digital inputs and outputs
- Analog inputs for direct connection of volts, mV, mA, thermocouples, Pt100 and Pt1000
- Digital inputs such as counter, frequency and encoder
- Analog outputs allow control and regulation via voltage (0 ~ +5 V, 0 ~ +10 V, +/-5 V, +/-10 V) and current (0 ~ +20 mA or +4 ~ +20 mA) - Analog outputs enable control and regulation via voltage (0 ~ +5 V, 0 ~ +10 V, +/-5 V, +/-10 V) and current (0 ~ +20 mA or +4 ~ +20 mA)
- Digital outputs with Open Collector, sink/source and up to 700mA per channel
- Relay outputs
Special functions of the CANopen I/O modules
- Heartbeat Messaging - Each slave regularly sends a heartbeat message to the master to monitor its functionality.
- Node Guarding - The master sends a request to check the slave status.
- I/O Pair Connection - For the transmission of digital signals over a CANopen network to another slave.
- Auto Response - Automatic response of the CANopen modules via event trigger or time trigger.
- Easy Mounting - Standard equipment for DIN-rail in the switch cabinet and additionally for the wall.
