CiA® 455: CANopen application profile for drilling machines

The specification describes the control application for drilling machines with special regard on
positioning and tool control. The virtual control network is based on an hierarchical approach.
The drilling control unit acts as application master. Based on the inputs of the sensor unit, and
control information from other control applications on a drilling machine, the drilling control
unit manages the tool activities such as drilling, compacting, etc. an controls the material flow and the mast position as well. Depending on the drilling machine’s capabilities, several
instances of the indicated virtual devices may be implemented The number under the rela ted
virtual device indicates the maximum number of instances, which may be supported for the
related virtual device.

In order to work with positions on a construction machine, a local coordinate system is
introduced for each machine, which enables the usage of local coordinates for all calculations
instead of huge, global positions. The point 0,0,0 of this coordinate system as well as its
alignment is well defined, so that it can be used on each machine with a minimal
mathematical effort.
