This program allows the simulation of an entire
CANopen network on a PC. No CAN interface is required, as the CAN bus is
simulated within the PC. Multiple CANopenIA Device Profile implementations
are included for simulation, including simulation models of CANopen I/O
modules from various vendors.
This program allows practicing the configuration and
commissioning of CANopen networks.
This simulation tool offers far more than many CANopen starter kits. As all nodes are simulated one immediately has access
to a large variety of CANopen nodes. Networks with up to 15 nodes can be set
up and simulated within minutes.
One interesting aspect of PC-based node simulation
is the flexible
Process Data Stimulation, which is readily supported in CANopen Magic
