Abstract: CAN in Automation (CiA) offers a software tool to test devices for conformance to the higher-layer protocol CANopen. Also, the CiA international users’ and manufacturers’ group certifies CANopen devices with the help of this tool. The CAN-based higher-layer protocol CANopen is used in many different application areas, e.g. in machine building, in medical technology, in rail vehicles, in building automation and in commercial vehicles. Error-free communication, the base for liability exclusion and customer retention, is only possible if the interfaces have been implemented correctly.


Keywords: CANopen conformance, Conformance test tool
