CANopen Family of Products

by Eric Rice

Applied Motion Products offers a range of stepper and servo products with built-in CANopen communications. CANopen is a standardized communication protocol for use in distributed automation control systems. It is a popular fieldbus option for applications that require the transmission of time-critical data to and from the devices on the network.

CANopen products from Applied Motion adhere to CAN in Automation (CiA) specifications DS301 and DSP402. Profile Position, Profile Velocity, Profile Torque (servo only), and Homing modes are fully supported at data rates up to 1 Mbps. Applied Motion also provides specific CANopen objects for executing stored Q programs and accessing internal data registers in the products.
