Proof of conformity

Conformance testing is like spell checking. CiA provides the CANopen conformance test tool, developed by a consortium of CiA members. Members can get it free-of-charge. The CiA staff uses it for conformance testing of CANopen products. Therefore, test customers get the tool free-of-charge for preparation. On CiA's website you can find a list of successfully tested CANopen devices.

In order to test interoperability, CiA offers an optional in-system test. It checks if the tested device communicates failure-free with other CANopen devices. At the moment, we use a CANopen master by Schneider Electric.
