The CANopen Lift demonstrator
The MG CANopen Lift has initiated the development of the CANopen Lift demonstrator, which already has been shown at several events. It is a modular system consisting of different independent lift control systems (central controller, car drive unit, positioning unit, I/O panels, and car door unit). Four modules make one lift application. Each module hosts one or two devices. Integrating CiA 417 devices from additional companies increasingly expands the demonstrator. The demonstrator was shown at the Interlift 2015 on the CiA stand.
It was not expected that the CANopen Lift demonstrator attracted that much attention from visitors and not participating suppliers.
