Powerful CANopen service and diagnostics
tool for service staff and developers

The IXXAT CANopen® Device Manager is a versatile and upgradeable tool aimed at device test, diagnostics, and field service tasks.

It also offers concise DCF and firmware download according to CiA 302, LSS master according to CiA 305.

Functions and services

Plug-in modules
The highlight of the IXXAT CANopen Device Manager is the support for plug-in modules that are tailored to specific requirements of CANopen devices and systems. Plug-in modules may be dynamically installed at run time and can integrate seamlessly with CANopen Device Manager. Plug-in modules implement a high-level abstraction of functionality as described in the CiA CANopen specifications.
On request, IXXAT can develop customer specific plug-in modules that provide an entirely customized graphical user interface optimized for the requirements of device commissioning or maintenance tasks performed by a service staff.

SDO services
Direct device access is supported by means of SDO services (normal, expedited, and block transfer including CRC calculation). From the user point of view, SDO access to the device is considerably simplified by an object dictionary browser that interprets device description information contained in electronic device description files (EDS or XDD). Large data blocks can be directly written to or read from a file, and may be optionally displayed in a separate dialog in both ASCII and hexadecimal representations.

PDO services
The CANopen Device Manager supports PDO read and write services as specified in CiA 301. During a CANopen device or a network scan, configuration data for all PDOs that are supported by the detected devices are uploaded and both communication and mapping parameters are displayed in the form of a summary list. To allow for diagnostics and testing of synchronous PDO transmission, CANopen Device Manager supports single-shot or periodic generation of SYNC messages according to CiA 301, with a cycle time resolution of 1ms.
