About The Book
Being three authors, we divided Embedded Networking with CAN and CANopen into three parts:
Part 1: Using CANopen, by Olaf Pfeiffer
This part focuses on CANopen up to the system integrator level. Any technician or engineer who needs to be able to configure and/or maintain a CANopen network will find the required knowledge to do so in this part. The last chapter in this part contains a step-by-step example of a network configuration and test cycle.
Understanding Embedded Networking Requirements
The CANopen Standard
CANopen Beyond DS301
CANopen Configuration Example
Part 2: CANopen Engineering, by Christian Keydel
This is the part for engineers who need to have a detailed knowledge of how CAN and CANopen work, especially for those developing their own CANopen devices. It describes and compares various implementation methods in detail.
Underlying Technology: CAN
Part 3: CANopen Reference, by Andrew Ayre
A pure reference section for all CANopen users. Key elements of CANopen are summarized in a way that allows a quick look-up. The core of this part is an Object Dictionary reference listing all Object Dictionary entries specified by the CiA CANopen standards DS301 and DS302.
The minimal CANopen protocol stack introduced in the book Embedded
Networking with CAN and CANopen is no longer actively maintained.
CANopen and MicroCANopen have greatly evolved over the last years. For
reference, educational and strictly
non-commercial purposes, the original version from 2003
can still be downloaded here.
We strongly recommend
using the current MicroCANopen Plus for all new implementations.
