Features and Advantages
ProCANopen enables the efficient and quick planning of complete CANopen networks as well as devices. The user is supported in all project phases, including planning, development, start-up, and service. Through the extensive functions, combined with an intuitive user interface, the user can concentrate immediately on the definition of the system parameters. ProCANopen executes the concrete and CANopen-conforming implementation of projects automatically. This significantly reduces the configuration effort required for extensive systems. The quality of the configuration thus created is increased, which in turn increases security on the system.
ProCANopen offers many functions. It is oriented towards the process of planning CANopen networks. Specifically, its features are:
The ProCANopen Viewer, which can be obtained free of charge, offers largely the same range of functions as the full version of ProCANopen. All that is lacking in the ProCANopen Viewer is the ability to save projects. With suitable hardware ProCANopen Viewer enables full access - e.g. reading in CANopen devices or configuring them - over the connected CANopen bus.
