The CAN 300 PRO module of Systeme Helmholz GmbH for use in an S7-300* from Siemens permits connection of CAN stations with the programmable controller. The module can be slotted either in the central controller or in the expansion unit. The CAN 300 PRO module supports CAN 2.0A (11 Bit) and CAN 2.0B (29 Bit) frames with a freely selectable baud rate of 10 kbps to 1 Mbps.
The CAN 300 PRO module can send and receive CAN frames in Layer 2 operating mode. The data of the CANopen® slaves can be processed as a process image in CANopen® Master operating mode in the PLC. Applications as a CANopen® Slave is also possible. Application examples are provided for standard applications including motor control with CANopen®. Data handling blocks for the SAE J1939 protocol are also available.
The CAN 300 PRO module contains 16 freely settable timers. Each timer can trigger a freely programmable CAN telegram. That way, it is easy to implement the synchronous protocols in common use in drive and servo systems using the CAN 300 PRO module.
The DIP switch for setting the baud rate and the station address facilitate commissioning. An optional micro memory card stores the project so that the parameterization or the module is quickly replaced during servicing.
6 LEDs indicate the operating status of the module. A USB interface is available for diagnostics and parameterization tasks. The CAN 300 PRO also works in the extended ambient temperature range of -25 °C to +60 °C.A USB cable is included.
Information about the parameterization software CANParam and about the data handling blocks for the PLC you will find under CAN Software. When first used, data handling blocks are required for the PLC.
