CAN in Automation (CiA) e. V. is the international users' and manufacturers' group for Controller Area Network (CAN). The non-profit association was founded in 1992 and is supported by about 615 members, CiA' members develop CAN-based higher-Iayer protocols, e.g. CANopen and device profiles. CiA representatives participate in international standardization bodies (IEC and ISO).
CANopen specifications for mobile machines
Since 20 years CiA publishes CANopen specifications, e.g. CiA 406 profile specifies the communication and application parameters for different types of linear and rotary encoders such as incremental and absolute, normal, and high resolution, single and multi-sensor (linear only) encoders. CiA 410 specifies the CANopen interface for single- and dual-axis inclinometers. CiA 415 specifies the communication interface for sensors and a sensor controller of road construction and earth moving machines.
CiA provides devise seminars for development engineers, system designers, and technical decision-makers. Attendees receive basic information on CAN/CAN FD or CANopen.
CiA test center
CANopen device conformance testing is used to determine whether CANopen devices comply with the requirements of CiA 301 "CANopen application layer and communication profile" specification. CANopen interoperability testing is a CANopen network compatibility testing to determine whether CANopen devices can be integrated into a CANopen network and perform their function without causing any communication problems.
