Anybus Communicator CAN - CANopen

Integrate your CAN-based industrial devices and equipment to a CANopen control system without the need for any changes to the device. Just connect, configure and you're done!

The Anybus Communicator is a proven and trusted protocol converter gateway that connects non- industrial devices with a CAN-based protocol to CANopen. The gateway performs an intelligent protocol conversion and presents the CAN data to the Master PLC/Controller as easily processed I/O data.

The Communicator is slim stand-alone gateway designed for IP20 and DIN-rail mounting, requiring a 24-volt power supply. The Communicator is conformance tested to current CANopen specifications guaranteeing network compatibility.

Typical serial applications

Typical serial applications include variable frequency drives, sensors, actuators, human machine interfaces, barcode readers, RFID readers and industrial scales among others.
