CAN in Automation
CAN in Automation (CiA) association has released version 2.0.0 of the CiA 461 profile specification series, which comprises four parts specifying the CANopen interfaces of weighing devices.
CAN in Automation (CiA) members have developed the CAN XL data link layer specification, which provides the functional and procedural means to transfer frames between nodes and to detect errors that occur in the physical layer.
CAN in Automation (CiA) has released the CiA 406-J and CiA 410-J specifications, which describe the adaptation of the CANopen encoder and inclinometer profiles for J1939-based networks.
CAN in Automation (CiA) has released the CiA 463 series standardizing the gateway between CANopen responsible for CANopen FD networks and input/output (I/O)-Link.
CAN in Automation re-elected the three members of their board: Uwe Koppe, Christian Schlegel, and Holger Zeltwanger.
CAN in Automation (CiA) is hosting a pair of seminars in March 2019 to explain CANopen benefits for beginners and experienced users.
CAN in Automation's (CiA) international users’ and manufacturers’ group has established the CAN XL Special Interest Group (SIG) for their next-generation protocol, which is designed for TCP/IP communication and radar sensors.
Can in Automation (CiA) elected their board of directors at their annual general assembly and celebrated the group's 25th anniversary.
When CAN-based networks were first used in industrial automation, the robustness and the reliability were key issues.
Opposite to factory automation, embedded machine control systems need to be optimized to design better products than those of competitors. This requires configuring the communication, in particular the scheduling and content of control and status messages. The process data object (PDO) protocol transmits, in real-time, control and status information as well as measured values.
