Use CANopen DS402 motion control standard

Used In:

  •  Any application interfacing with EtherCAT DS402 devices

Elmo’s G-MAS fully supports the EtherCAT adoptation of the DS402 standard.

Motion profiles that are supported include:

  • Cyclic sync position
  • Cyclic sync velocity
  • Cyclic sync torque
  • Profile position
  • Profile velocity

The G-MAS enables the user to send Service Data Objects (SDOs) to a network device with the same interface specifications as a CANopen device.

EtherCAT network configuration is easy and efficient using Elmo Application Studio (EAS).

Design Features

  • Automatic scanning and populating of devices to the network tree
  • Process data mapping via the configuration tool
  • Support for 3rd party devices
  • Enables easy sending of Service Data Objects (SDOs)
