Communicating via the CANopen protocol – 3.x Guide


Gocator supports various protocols that let the sensor communicate directly with a PLC. If your PLC uses a protocol not supported by Gocator, you must convert between the unsupported protocol and a supported one.

This guide shows how to interface to a Gocator via the CANopen protocol, using a Hilscher gateway to convert from CANopen to the Modbus protocol, which is supported by the Gocator.
