PN/CAN-Gateway, PROFINET/CANopen Slave
PN/CAN-Gateway, PROFINET/CANopen Slave


With the PN/CAN-Gateway, the connection of CAN devices to PROFINET is easy and straightforward.

The PN/CAN gateway "CANopen Slave" enables the coupling of machines with CANopen bus to machines with PROFINET network and represents a freely configurable full CANopen Slave Device at the CAN bus.

On the PROFINET network the PN/CAN gateway "CANopen Slave" is a PROFINET I/O device and supports transfer rates up to 100 Mbit full duplex. The data of the CANopen SDOs are transparently and freely configurably inserted into the PROFINET network and can thus be read or written directly in the PLC. The PN/CAN gateway is integrated into the hardware configurator of the PROFINET controller with a GSDML file, and all values of the CANopen slave are available as IO information. Special handling blocks are not necessary.

An EDS or DCF file is used to permanently load a plant-specific CANopen device configuration into the device.

The features MRP (media redundancy) as well as extensive diagnostic functions and an interface for online diagnostics complete the performance features of the PN/CAN gateway.

The gateway supports CANopen network management, nodeguarding/heartbeat, emergencies and SDO accesses on the CAN bus. Up to 16 RX- and Tx-PDOs can be parameterized.
It is also possible to parameterize the CANopen device including PDO mapping via the CAN bus and to send customer specific emergency messages.
