Embedding CANopen in the world of OPC UA

CiA has scheduled a free-of-charge event discussing, how to embed CANopen networks into the OPC UA world.

The information day addresses CiA members as well as CANopen system designers (also non-members). Mathias Damm from the OPC foundation introduces OPC UA and the principles of embedding serial networks. CiA members are invited to present already existing OPC UA solutions in conjunction with OPC UA. In addition, CiA presents the activities that have been started to embed CANopen in internet-connected applications (Internet of Things). Afterwards, the attendees can discuss the possibilities of embedding CANopen in the world of OPC UA in detail. The information day on OPC UA is scheduled for December 15, 2015 (10:00 to 15:00) in Nuremberg (Germany). The preliminary program comprises:
  • Introduction to OPC UA and embedding fieldbus systems to OPC UA applications Matthias Damm (OPC UA Foundation)
  • Overview on related CiA activities, working groups and achieved results Reiner Zitzmann (CAN in Automation)
  • Brief reports on existing solutions or solutions under development (CiA members – submissions are welcome)
