The Tritex II product line is now compatible with the CANopen communication protocol. This enhancement allows the Tritex II to become an integral part of a control architecture or machine control processes.
CANopen is available on Tritex II AC and Tritex II DC actuators; these devices operate as slaves to the CANopen Master. Setup of the system is easily achieved with the Expert software using the RS485 port. The latest revision of the Expert software supports all the Tritex products including CANopen and is available on the Exlar website for download.
Customer connections for CANopen are offered with either an M12 connector or wired directly to a terminal strip on the connection board with 75, 90 and 115 mm frame sizes.
