Of course, the most important sources of information for CANopen are the specification documents of CiA. However, specifications are often very dry and are not always easy to understand. This is true of the CANopen specifications as well. Helpful supplements to these specifications include several books that shed light on the CANopen field and its relation to practical applications.
You will also find fundamental knowledge on the CANopen standard and network structure at the Vector website. Benefit from Vector's CANopen expertise in the form of technical articles, product videos, presentations and application notes: CANopen know-how.
Efficient training program E-Learning modules
In the framework of its E-Learning modules, Vector is addressing everyone who wishes to get a clear idea of how a CAN communication system works.

Teaching fundamental knowledge from theory to practice - the CANopen Seminar
