SUCCESS STORY I Yes we CAN – Solutions for field bus communication

The PN/CAN gateway from Helmholz impresses drive technology specialists

CAN group (CANopen Slave | CANopen | CAN Layer 2)

Compact and cost-effective, CANopen has prevailed as a preferred protocol in drive technology for good reason. For the integration of corresponding components into machine environments, however, this focus by drive manufacturers on individual bus systems can represent an obstacle if Profibus/PROFINET is already in place on the PLC side there. Here, field bus couplers like the PB/CAN gateway and PN/CAN gateway from Helmholz offer a practical way out. This solution is recommended by, among many others, maxon motor ag, a Swiss manufacturer of high-precision drive systems impressed by its advantages.
