CANopen Router

A-CANOR

The CANopen® Router provides intelligent data routing between either EtherNet/IP™ or Modbus TCP/IP® and the CANopen bus network. This allows the user to integrate CANopen devices into a Rockwell® Logix platform (e.g. ControlLogix® or CompactLogix™) or any Modbus Master device with minimal effort.

The module can be configured to be either a Master or Slave allowing the user to not only integrate CANopen devices into a Logix or Modbus system, but to also allow the user to use Logix or Modbus devices in an existing CANopen network (by using the CANopen Router in Slave mode). In a Logix system the module uses Direct-To-Tag technology allowing CANopen devices to exchange data with a Logix controller without the need to write any ladder or application code in Studio 5000.

The module also provides a range of statistics to simplify the diagnostic process as well as a CANopen packet capture for remote diagnosis. A built-in webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation, including the display of CANopen operation and communication statistics, without the need for any additional software.
