Interface profiles

Interface profiles specify the CAN-based interfaces of gateways and protocol converters. Most of the interface profiles are mapped to the CiA 301 CANopen application layer and communication profile. In the future, the interface profiles will be mapped to the CiA 1301 CANopen FD application layer and communication profile.

The following interface profiles have been developed:

  • CiA 446: CANopen interface profile for AS-Interface gateways
  • CiA 456: CANopen interface profile for configurable network components
  • CiA 457: CANopen interface profile wireless transmission
  • CiA 463 series: Interface profile for IO-Link gateway
