Advanced real-time network status and diagnostics data

Used In:

  • Any CANopen application
  • Host software, IEC or G-MAS environments

Elmo’s G-MAS multi-axis controller provides an advanced tool for viewing CANopen network diagnostics. The tool provides real time diagnostics regarding the network status.

Elmo’s G-MAS multi-axis controller provides real-time CAN bus network status and data. With the CAN bus network diagnosic tool, the user can trace network problems and locate its source – for instance, in situations where a device has been disconnected or was configured incorrectly.

Real-time network diagnostics are available when using the CANopen error control HEARTBEATs mechanism.
