CANopen Device Explorer as component of CANopen Toolchain & Stack

The CANopen DeviceExplorer software tool provides CANopen (FD) master functionalities and allows the analysis and configuration of CANopen devices. Information about each CANopen (FD) device is read from the electronic data sheet of the device or can be scanned directly from the device. Using standardized device configuration files (DCF) device configurations can be saved or imported. Additionally, data of entire CANopen networks can be stored in project files. The built-in scripting capability using QtScript allows users to create their own test and control applications with only little effort.

Main Features

  • CANopen master functionalities like NMT commands, Heartbeat, Node guarding, (U)SDO client, PDO producer and consumer, SYNC producer, emergency consumer
  • Optional LSS master functionality (included with “Full Version” – see below)
  • Saving and importing of device and network configuration
  • Firmware download acc. to CiA 302
  • Optional Scripting PlugIn to create user specific test or service applications (included with “Full Version” – see below)

Object dictionary

Objects of a device are presented in a clearly arranged object browser. Access to each object – according to the access rights – is given for reading and writing. The CANopen DeviceExplorer supports all SDO services. Values of the objects can be displayed decimal, hexadecimal, binary or in ASCII format, depending on the data type. Large data, like domain blocks, can be read directly from – or written to files.

PDO – configuration and visualizing

The CANopen DeviceExplorer supports the simple configuration of the the PDO mapping by drag&drop function. PDOs can be sent, received and visualized with a single click. The SYNC message for sending of cycle PDOs can be sent once or cyclic for the purpose of tests or diagnosis.


The CANopen Device Packages ‘Basic’ and ‘Full’ contain a defined set of plugins. Additional plugins can be licensed separately.
