sysWORXX CANopen ChipF40

Ready-to-use plug-on module with pre-programmed CANopen firmware

Versatile communication interface with standard DIP-40 connector

[DeepL] sysWORXX CANopen ChipF40

The SYS TEC CANopen Chip F40 is a completely ready-to-use, very cost-effective plug-on module (SOM) with pre-programmed CANopen firmware for controlling decentralized CAN nodes. The integrated standard DIP-40 connector forms the interface to the target hardware and makes the CANopen Chip a versatile communication interface.

Up to 7 I/O configurations provide a comprehensive selection of usable digital inputs and outputs, analog inputs as well as PWM outputs. The on-board hardware setting options allow flexible module configuration.

The CANopen Chip F40 is a CANopen Slave Device according to CANopen device profile 401 and CANopen communication profile 301 V4.02 (Certified according to CiA conformance Test - Certificate CiA200002-301V30/11-013, Vendor 00 00003Fh). LEDs indicate the device status according to 303-3 V1.0.
