CANopen Master API

CANopen Master API

With the CANopen Master API, IXXAT offers a proven solution for a quick and easy development of PC based CANopen® control, test and service applications under Microsoft Windows.

IXXAT Automation is pleased to announce the updated and expanded CANopen Master API V6. Along with the active CAN interfaces, CANopen Master API V6 supports IXXAT’s low-priced passive interfaces.
The new API can operate up to 12 CAN interfaces in parallel, and, depending on the used hardware, up to 4 CAN channels per interface board.
New functionality of CANopen Master API V6 includes support for the latest CiA® specifications CiA 301 (CANopen application layer and communication profile) version 4.2 and CiA 305 (CANopen layer setting services (LSS)) and protocols) version 2.2.
An important feature of the most recent CiA 301 specification is the extended CANopen SYNC protocol, which enables the system integrator to avoid temporary message bursts during synchronous operation of large CANopen networks.
CiA 305 includes an enhanced search and configuration protocol (LSS Fastscan) simplifying the dynamic allocation of node IDs for CANopen LSS slave devices.
Currently, the CANopen Master API programming library is offered for 32 and 64 bit Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 systems. In addition to the DLL and a detailed user manual, numerous sample applications for C, C++, C#, Delphi and are included with the delivery.
Also included are examples enabling the easy integration of the CANopen Master API in LabVIEW™ from National Instruments™.
