The CANOpen gateway allows rotary or linear absolute position data to be accessed by CANOpen motion control resources. A new generation of CRG CANopen gateways incorporates CANopen encoder profile CIA 406 v.3.2. This profile has also been implemented in Leine & Linde’s 600 Series CANopen encoders.
For reliable and efficient transfer of data, the gateway accepts encoder position data from encoders using the EnDat high speed serial interface. This interface connects a variety of absolute linear or rotary encoders for high temperatures and harsh environments to CANOpen networks. Plus, the Gateway lets users exchange encoders without interrupting bus communication to other nodes in the network.
The CANOpen Gateway supports data rates up to 1Mbit/s. The specific baud rates and node addresses are switch selectable and easy to access. The gateway is also rated to IP65 for environmental protection and has an aluminum housing supporting mounting through DIN rail or direct screw attachment. CRG CANopen gateways are available in several mechanical variants with cable gland or 3xM12 connectors for the CANOpen connection and M23 or M12 connector for the encoder input.
