Scope of IEEE P1451.6:

This project establishes a CANopen-based network for multi-channel transducer modules. The standard defines the mapping of IEEE 1451 TEDS to the CANopen dictionary entries as well as communication messages, process data, configuration parameter, and diagnosis information. It adopts the CANopen device profile for measuring devices and closed-loop controllers. This project defines an intrinsically safe (IS) CAN physical layer.


Purpose of IEEE P1451.6:

There are many implementations of CANopen network interfaces based on the CiA DS 404 device profile. In order to make use of the IEEE 1451 TEDS concept and to achieve data compatibility from a single-sensor to a high-performance closed-loop controller, it is necessary to harmonize the TEDS parameters. The proposed project allows development of lean gateways and cascaded transducer networks based on a combined specification of IEEE 1451 and CANopen.
