PEAK-System Develops an I/O Device with CANopen and CANopen FD Connection

In cooperation with the partner Embedded Systems Academy (EmSA), PEAK-System has developed an I/O device with CANopen and CANopen FD connection. The PCAN-MicroMod FD DR CANopen Digital 1 has 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs and is delivered in a DIN rail housing with Phoenix screw terminal strips.

The inputs comply with the PLC standard DIN EN 61131-2 and have a Type 3 characteristic; they are galvanically isolated in two groups up to 100 V from the device supply.

The digital outputs on high-side switch basis can each be loaded up to 500 mA. Mechanisms such as thermal protection, short-circuit detection, and open-load detection increase the reliability of the outputs.

The Node ID and bit rates are set via rotary switches. This allows the device to be set up for use in new CANopen FD and classic CANopen networks without additional configuration software. CANopen conformity has been tested and certified by the CAN in Automation (CiA) association.
