News - CANopen tests with AnaGate products
Testing of CANopen devices via USB and Ethernet
Karlsruhe. April 2015.
CANopen is a standardized communication
protocol for embedded applications based on the CAN field bus. Manufacturer of CANopen devices check the compliance of their hardware implementations to these
CANopen standards by conformity checks. This can be done by using an official
test tool, the CANopen Conformance Test Tool.
CAN in Automation (CiA) provides a CANopen Conformance Test Tool (CTT), which
checks the device conformity to the CANopen specification CiA DS301. The tool
may be used by members and non-members of the user group. The CiA itself uses
the tool to make interoperability tests and for certification of CANopen
CANopen Conformance Test Tool
The tool in actual version 3.0 is running on a windows pc und needs a CAN
hardware adapter and a COTI.dll (CANopen Testing Interface). The COTI library
for AnaGate CAN adapters are included in the
scope of delivery of
the CTT. The newest version of the library can additionally downloaded from
the support pages of Analytica for free.
AnaGate CAN products
All AnaGate CAN bus adapters of Analytica can be used together with the CTT
of the CiA. Here should be emphasized that the interconnection to the
CANopen device can be done over ethernet by using one of the AnaGate models
providing an ethernet interface.
