CANopen is a higher protocol based on the CAN bus and is used in automation and control technology. It enables standardised communication between different devices and controls, independent of the manufacturer.

CANopen offers a variety of standardised services and objects that facilitate the development and implementation of control systems. It enables the transmission of data in real time, which is particularly important in automation technology.

CANopen is used in various applications, such as factory automation, building automation, medical technology and traffic engineering. It enables the integration of different devices and controllers, allowing communication on a uniform platform.

In addition, CANopen offers a variety of advantages, such as high reliability, simple integration and configuration of devices, reduction of cabling effort and costs, and flexible expandability.

By using CANopen, companies can integrate their systems and applications easily and reliably, reducing development costs and implementation time.
