In a single housing of 8cm2 in size, the module contains the company’s NP30 microprocessor with its integrated CAN controller and a full-featured CANopen slave software stack. It is said to reduce the development effort needed to design a CANopen interface by up to 70 percent. Space and power supply requirements are minimized so that even small automation devices such as barcode readers or motor starters can be economically equipped with a CANopen interface, says the vendor. The chip functions as a standard CANopen slave and supports Version 4 of the DS 301 profile. Up to 144 bytes of input data and 144 bytes of output data are permitted.
