Where is the EDS checker gone?

The CANopen EDS (electronic data-sheet) checker developed and supported by Vector Informatik has been updated and reviewed. It is not more available as stand-alone tool. It is now integrated into CiA’s CANopen conformance test tool. The very same EDS checker is also embedded in some demo-versions of Vector tools (download center) as well as the full versions.

In order to pre-test the profile-specific parameters of the EDS, you need additional CODBs. The responsible CiA technical groups have approved the following CODBs:

  • CANopen I/O profile (CiA 401 version 3.1.0)
  • CANopen encoder profile (CiA 406 version 4.0.0)
  • CANopen inclinometer profile (CiA 410 version 1.3.0)
  • CANopen Lift profile (CiA 417-2 version 2.1.0 and CiA 417-4 version 2.1.0)
  • CANopen contrast media injector profile (CiA 425 version 2.2)
  • CANopen subsea profile (CiA 443 version 2.1.0)
