CiA® 408: CANopen profile for hydraulic devices

The CiA 408 profile specifies the CANopen interface for hydraulic proportional valves, hydrostatic pumps and hydrostatic transmissions (e.g. drive, axis) and may also be applied to pneumatic devices. The current version is based on the network-independent proposal “VDMA profile fluid power technology. Proportional valves and hydrostatic transmissions, version 1.6.3” from VDMA (German association of machine builders). Thus, VDMA-compliant hydraulic devices using different networking technologies can be easily combined in one system. The specified application data is then exchanged via corresponding gateways. The device manufacturer may supply diverse markets with valves, pumps, pneumatics, etc. implementing the same electronic interface according to CiA 408 and simply varying the appropriate application software. Usage of standardized CANopen interfaces allows monitoring, inspection, and diagnostics of the networked devices using off-the-shelf tools.

The profile specifies the required configuration parameters, application parameters (process data), and diagnostic information. Parameters for hydraulic drive and valve (pump) reside in the same CANopen logical device. This allows one electronic circuit to control up to eight hydraulic drive and valve (pump) modules.

Application parameters for up to 15 control modes are defined. The modes may include the (mixed) control of spool position, pressure, speed, power, velocity, position, and flow. The application parameter assignment within each control mode is done according to a defined schema. After the control-mode-specific parameter definitions the set-point conditioning (e.g. limit, scaling, ramp) and actuator conditioning (e.g. zero correction, dead-band compensation) is defined. Control monitoring, auxiliary functions and target window monitoring finalize the parameters for each control mode. The description of application parameters consists of parameter values (16-bit or 32-bit integer or floating point values), as well as the corresponding SI unit and prefix with coding as specified in CiA 303-2. The application parameters are defined in the VDMA profile by the attributes name, data type, substitute value, default value, value range, access rights, and object class. The nine defined TPDO and ten defined RPDO (process data object) mapping variants depend on the device control mode and are different for drives and valves (except for mapping 1).

The introduced device FSA (finite state automaton) specifies the application behavior as well as the corresponding state transitions of the hydraulic devices. A specific device FSA state transition may cause a state transition in the CANopen communication FSA (see CiA 301) and vice versa. The devices compliant to this profile are required to support the emergency message as specified in CiA 301. CiA 408 compliant CANopen devices supporting the application manager functionality also provide the CANopen NMT (network management) master functionality.
