SIG 3,3-V transceiver in preparation

Interest Group (IG) lower layers has decided to establish a Special Interest Group (SIG) to develop CiA specifications on 3,3-V transceivers. It is intended that 3,3-V components can be mixed with 5-V transceivers. Interested parties may contact CiA office.

Review of CiA 601-3 started

Interest Group (IG) lower layers is going to review and to update CiA 601-3. This document contains system design recommendations for CAN FD networks. It is intended to add the annex of the withdrawn CiA 601-4 document and SIC transceiver related recommendations. Next meeting is scheduled on November 9, 2023.

CiA 603 updated

CiA has released the version 1.1.0 of the CAN network time management specification. The document has been editorially improved and substituted non-inclusive terms. It complies with Autosar specifications.

Cooperation with EWA and ZVEI

In respect to the CiA 464 profile for manual welding and cutting equipment, CiA cooperates with the non-profit associations EWA (European Welding Association) and ZVEI (Germany’s Electro and Digital Industry). For more details, please contact CiA office.

CAN Info Mail

The September issue of the CAN Info Mail, a monthly CiA email service, is online. It contains valuable information and can be subscribed.

Tradeshow: Schweissen & Schneiden

CiA is present on the “Welding & Cutting” exhibition in Essen, Germany. In hall 1, stand 1D20, CiA informs about the CiA 464 profile development from September 11 to 15.

CANopen Safety

The EN 50325-5 standard specifying CANopen Safety needs to reviewed. Therefore, CiA calls for experts interested in updating this standard. For details, please contact CiA office.

ISO 11898-1 and ISO 11898-2

Both ISO standards are available as DIS versions. Therefore, CiA has withdrawn CiA 610-1 (CAN XL), CiA 610-3 (SIC XL), CiA 601-4 (SIC), and CiA 604-1 (CAN FD Light). The contents of these CiA specifications are now included in the ISO documents.

SIG welding and cutting

The next SIG online meeting is scheduled on August 29. The group is going to develop the CiA 464 profile specifying CANopen interfaces for fume-extraction, power-source, and torch units. For details, please contact CiA office.

CiA 401 profile reviewed

CiA has split the CiA 401 profile for modular I/O devices into three parts. Part B specifies the functional behavior and the parameters. Part C contains the mapping to classic CANopen and Part F the mapping to CANopen FD.
