The Anybus-IC from HMS Industrial Networks is a powerful embedded single-chip CANopen interface, certified by the CAN user organization for conformance to the CANopen standard. In a single housing of only 8cm2 in size, the Anybus-IC contains the HMS NP30 microprocessor with its integrated CAN controller and a full featured CANopen slave software stack. It reduces the development efforts needed to design a CANopen interface by up to 70%. Space and power supply requirements are minimized so that even small automation devices such as barcode readers or motor starters can be equipped with a CANopen interface. It requires only a single 5 Volt / 150 mA power supply.
