IP67-rated CAN bus controller meets the CANopen specifications DS 301 and DS 401. Automatic baud rate detection, PDO linking, life/node guarding, emergency objects are supported. The integrated X2X Link connection makes it possible to connect additional modules. AutoMapping is used to automatically detect these modules, whose data is then placed in the I/O map. Sixteen digital channels can be configured to operate as digital inputs or outputs, which are then individually directed to M8 connections.
