CANopen Interfaces for SIMATIC
Industrial Automation Systems

The CANopen modules by HMS enable system integrators to easily and inexpensively integrate CANopen field devices with SIMATIC industrial automation equipment. The modules allow interaction between PROFIBUS or PROFINET controllers – such as the S7-1200 or ET200S device series – with CAN/CANopen fieldbus devices (gateways).
