CiA Weekly Telegraph and CiA service information
The CiA Weekly Telegraph is a periodical email informing you about the latest headlines in the CAN Newsletter Online. In addition, it contains new and updated entries in the CiA Product Guides. Quarterly, you find links to the articles published in the CAN Newsletter magazine. There is also a link to download the entire magazine.
The CiA service information is sent event-driven by email. It provides information about seminars and conferences, new CiA groups, CiA participation in fairs, and many other useful news about CiA activities.
You can subscribe to both email services on the right-hand side. Just fill in your name and email.
Where is the EDS checker gone?
The CANopen EDS (electronic data-sheet) checker developed and supported by Vector Informatik has been updated and reviewed. It is not more available as stand-alone tool. It is now integrated into CiA’s CANopen conformance test tool. The very same EDS checker is also embedded in some demo-versions of Vector tools (download center) as well as the full versions.
In order to pre-test the profile-specific parameters of the EDS, you need additional CODBs. The responsible CiA technical groups have approved the following CODBs:
- CANopen I/O profile (CiA 401 version 3.1.0)
- CANopen encoder profile (CiA 406 version 4.0.0)
- CANopen inclinometer profile (CiA 410 version 1.3.0)
- CANopen Lift profile (CiA 417-2 version 2.1.0 and CiA 417-4 version 2.1.0)
- CANopen contrast media injector profile (CiA 425 version 2.2)
- CANopen subsea profile (CiA 443 version 2.1.0)
The 15th international CAN Conference focused on CAN FD technology. The December issue of the CAN Newsletter reports briefly about the 2-days event. It also contains some interesting reports about applications, e.g. tomorrow’s mobile machinery control systems. Another article describes the usage of Labview with embedded Linux on an ARM processor.
If you are looking for CAN-related products, you could visit the CAN Newsletter Online and the CiA Product Guide. Both publications provide brief product information. The product guides are structured according to a nomenclature in order to make it as easy as possible to find the desired product information. The online magazine reports recently launched CAN products.
If you would like to be informed on published news in any of CiA’s media, we recommend subscribing to CiA’s Weekly Telegraph, distributed by email.
