CANopen Master - EtherCAT gateway

Anybus CANopen master/slave to EtherCAT slave X-gateway

The Anybus X-gateway CANopen Master provides a seamless connection between a EtherCAT network and a secondary CANopen sub-network. This makes it possible to integrate CANopen devices in a EtherCAT system.
The gateway acts as a EtherCAT slave for the primary network and as a CANopen master or slave for the second network

With help of convenient configuration software it's easy to configure the data exchange bi-directional between both the networks.

Features and benefits

  • Fast copying of cyclic I/O data between a CANopen and EtherCAT network (5 ms)
  • Fulll CANopen Master/Manager functionality, eliminates the need for an PLC controller on the CANopen network
  • Connects up to 126 CANopen slave devices
  • Proven and tested with all PLC manufacturers
  • Easy CANopen configuration via the included Anybus Configuration Manager software. No programming required
  • Robust stand-alone housing for use in harsh industrial environments
  • Global free technical support and consultancy

Fast copuing of I/O data

The X-gateway's primary function is fast transfer of cyclic I/O data between the EtherCAT and the CANopen network. I/O data from the PROFIBUS network is written into CANopen objects that can be mapped into CANopen PDOs and vice versa. The gateway acts as a full Master/Manager on the CANopen network and as a Slave on the EtherCAT network. The data transmission between the two networks is completely transparent with a maximum data capacity of 510 bytes in each direction

Easy configuration - No programming required!

CANopen configuration can easily be made through the included Anybus Configuration Manager CANopen software, or with any other standard CANopen configuration tool. No programming skills are needed.
The Anybus Configuration Manager scans the CANopen devices on the subnet. The software linked to the CAN bus by using a CAN interface which is available separately.

CANopen Master/Manager

  • CANopen Master/Manager implementation according to the CANopen specification DS301 v4.0.2.
  • Connects up to 126 CANopen slaves
  • Network Management (NMT) messages, to configure and initialize the network.
  • Supporting 128 Receive PDOs and 128 Transmit PDOs, each can transfer up to 8 bytes.
  • Up to 510 bytes of cyclic data in each direction (PDO)
  • PDO message types: COS (Change of State), Cyclic Synchronous, Acyclic Synchronous.
  • Synchronization Object (SYNC) is used for synchronizing PDO communication.
  • Heartbeat Mechanism to monitor the status of nodes.
  • Node Guarding/Life Guarding Protocol provides possibility to guard slaves or the master.
  • EMCY (Emergency Object) is used for error reporting.
  • LSS master functionality
  • Can also function as a CANopen Slave

EtherCAT Slave interface

EtherCAT Slave settings can be made by importing the provided .XML file into engineering tool of the controlling PLC
  • Complete EtherCAT slave according to DS 301 V4.022
  • Supports CANopen over EtherCAT
  • Max 512 bytes of Input and 512 bytes of Output data (PDO + SDO)
  • Baudrate 100 Mbit/s full duplex
  • 4 FMMU channels (can be used freely by the EtherCAT master for any purpose.)
  • 4 SM channels
  • Bit-oriented FMMU operation
  • Position addressing, node addressing and logical addressing
  • PDI Watchdog
  • Output I/O Sync Manager Watchdog
  • Integrated switch allowing for a daisy-chain topology
