Complimentary Live Webinar - The Fundamentals of CANopen for Industrial Machine Control
esd electronics, Inc and maxon precision motors issue invitation to participate in a complimentary webinar, "The Fundamentals of CANopen for Industrial Machine Control".
By: esd electronics, Inc - Wilfred Voss
CANopen is an industrial networking system used in millions of applications worldwide. A proven serial bus based on Controller Area Network (CAN) technology that links multiple devices and allows them to work together. Optimized for reliability and real-time control, CAN/CANopen is especially well suited for motion systems consisting of actuators, sensors, controllers, and analog and digital I/O. It also offers a competitive edge. Unlike other serial-bus systems, CANopen maintains a certain level of manufacturer independence through standard device profiles with layered flexibility.
In this overview of the CANopen specification, we will give designers a fundamental understanding of the platform, advantages and disadvantages, and address questions about future direction of the standard. We’ll also take a focused look at device profiles, including an actual multi-networked application, exploring various communication layers and optimizing them for industrial control applications.
This webinar will take place on Thursday, March 12th at 2pm ET and will include a 15-minute Question & Answer Session. We encourage you to share this information with your colleagues.
