CANopen servo drives offer great advantages over traditional serial servo drives. The 3-wire CAN bus provides a cost-effective solution for networks up to 128 nodes on motion control applications with speeds up to 1Mbit per second. The CiA standard object dictionaries provide a faster time-to-market for applications development and improve compatibility between slave devices and master controllers. The Ingenia range of CANopen servo drives covers both PCB mount and Panel mount slave devices as well as ultra-high performance and more cost-effective solutions.

CANopen is a CAN-based communication system. It comprises higher-layer protocols and profile specifications. CANopen has been developed as a standardized embedded network with highly flexible configuration capabilities. It was designed originally for motion-oriented machine control systems, such as handling systems. Today it is used in various application fields, such as medical equipment, off-road vehicles, maritime electronics, railway applications, or building automation.
CANopen unburdens the developer from dealing with CAN hardware-specific details such as bit timing and acceptance filtering. It provides standardized communication objects (COB) for time-critical processes, configuration as well as network management data.
CANopen is an open network supported by over 500 companies worldwide and promoted by CAN in Automation. The main benefits of CANopen are:
