New Gateway PROFINET®-IO to CANopen®


The new CANopen-PN gateway by esd allows an easy connection of CANopen devices and networks to PROFINET IO.

Gateway PROFINET-IO to CANopen by esdThe gateway operates as a PROFINET IO device with a maximum of 1440 bytes input data and 1440 bytes output data on the PROFINET IO bus.

The CANopen-PN connects CANopen modules with CANopen (CiA 301) applications to e.g. a SIMATIC-S7 PLC.
A maximum number of 127 CANopen nodes can be connected to the gateway.
The gateway is designed according to PROFIBUS International Document TC2-09-0002 (CANopen-Integration_7012d07_Jul09) and CANopen specification CiA 309-4. The PROFINET IO interface and the CAN interface are electrically isolated. Via the InRailBus CAN connection to CAN-CBX IO modules and power connection can be realized without additional wiring effort.

The module can be configured via PROFINET IO configuration tool GSDML Composer.
The esd CAN tools (CANreal, CANplot, CANrepro, CANscript, COBview) can be used additionally for CAN diagnostics.
