C Series CANopen Interface Module


Enables CompactRIO systems to connect and communicate as a master on a CANopen network.

The C Series CANopen Interface Module is a high-speed interface for developing CANopen applications. CANopen is a higher-level communication protocol based on the controller area network (CAN) physical layer. It was designed for motion-oriented machine control networks, but now it is used in a variety of products and applications, including medical equipment, maritime electronics, building automation, and more. The C Series CANopen Interface Module can transmit and receive process data objects (PDOs) and service data objects (SDOs) according to CiA-DS 301. Using the NI-Industrial Communications for CANopen driver, you can batch edit SDOs, configure slave nodes with LSS services support, as well as perform network management (NMT), heartbeat, node guarding, and CANopen synchronization functions.
