The easy way to configure a CANopen network!


The Anybus Configuration Manager – CANopen is a Windows based software tool included with an Anybus X-gateway combination that uses a CANopen Master/Manager interface.

The Anybus Configuration Manager - CANopen connects your gateway to a PC using a USB to CAN adapter (can be ordered separately from HMS). Once installed, the software allows you to easily configure nodes on a CANopen network and set up how you want these nodes to communicate with other industrial networks. The uplink fieldbus or Ethernet slave interface is configured with a standard device description file (GSD/EDS) and the standard engineering tool of the PLC.

Anybus X-gateway CANopen

CANopen Configuration features

  • Configure the communication between CANopen and another network in a matter of minutes.
  • Scan the complete CANopen network to see all available nodes.
  • Access all objects in all nodes of your CANopen network.
  • Write parameters to any object in any node in the configuration.

Detect all nodes automatically

The Anybus Configuration Manager detects all installed nodes on your CANopen network. A graphical overview displays all nodes together with their corresponding EDS files.


Create parameter mapping

The PDO mapping window allows you to easily create links between different nodes in an easy and structured way. Simply choose the node and parameter that should be transmitted on the left side, and the node and parameter that should be received on the right side.


Online object access

Through the Online Object Access, you easily read and write parameters such as I/O size, timeout values and more with a few clicks of the mouse. 


Line Listener

With the built-in Line Listener, you can log all traffic on the CANopen network.


What you can do!

Connect any two industrial networks — Fieldbus, or Industrial Ethernet or connect to IT systems via MQTT or OPC UA.
