Press Release Summary:
Compatible with 3.3 and 5 Vdc environments, Model CAN-PCI-02 provides interface between distributed motion control software and CANopen servo and stepper drives. On-board microcontroller offloads processing tasks from host computer, speeding system performance. Providing dual isolated channels and PCI 32-bit interface, card employs high-speed ISO 11898 driver circuits for CAN bus bit rates to 1 Mbit/sec. Two independent CAN ports are fully isolated for noise immunity.

Copley's CAN Card Completes Motion Control Product Line
OEMs now get drives, distributed control software, and CAN card, from single source. New low cost card completes the distributed motion control solution.
Canton, MA, March 27, 2006--Copley's new smart Model CAN-PCI-02 CAN provides an interface between Copley's distributed motion control software and the firm's CANopen servo and stepper drives. The card provides a seamless solution for CANopen system evaluation.
With its aggressively priced CAN card, Copley now establishes a competitive one-stop shop for all the "ingredients" of a distributed motion control system. The card facilitates plug-and-play CANopen operation--under control of Copley's CML and CMO software--for Copley's Xenus & Accelnet servo amplifiers and the Stepnet stepper drivers.
Model CAN-PCI-02 is PCI compliant and compatible with both 3.3V and 5VDC environments. The card's on-board micro controller offloads processing tasks from the host computer, speeding system performance.
The new card employs high speed ISO 11898 driver circuits for CAN bus bit rates to 1 Mbit/sec; it also provides dual isolated channels and PCI 32-bit interface. The card's two independent CAN ports are fully isolated for maximum noise immunity in industrial environments.
CANopen finds widespread use in the Semiconductor, Life Sciences, Automated Assembly and Test & Measurement industries, for pick-and-place and material handling applications. CANopen distributed control reduces system cost by more than 40% versus traditional centralized control. Cabling is simplified, motion control cards are eliminated and servo loop performance and diagnostic capability are improved.
