Leine & Linde’s CANOpen gateway allows rotary or linear absolute position data to be accessed by CANOpen motion control resources. CRG CANopen gateways incorporate CANopen encoder profile CIA 406 v.3.2. This profile has also been implemented in Leine and Linde’s 600 Series CANopen encoders. The gateway accepts encoder position data from encoders using the EnDat high speed serial interface, which allows a wide variety of robust absolute linear or rotary encoders suitable for high temperatures and harsh environments to be connected to CANOpen networks. The CANOpen Gateway supports data rates up to 1Mbit/s. The gateway is also rated to IP65 for environmental protection and has an aluminum housing supporting mounting via DIN-rail or direct screw attachment.
