Modicon M241 Plc Page 16 Communication bus

16 Presentation Schneider Electric has selected CANopen for its machines and installations because of its wealth of functions and its resulting benefits in the automation world. This decision was based on the general acceptance of CANopen, and the fact that CANopen products are increasingly used in control system architectures. CANopen is an open network supported by more than 400 companies worldwide, and promoted by CAN in Automation (CiA). CANopen conforms to standards EN 50325-4 and ISO 15745-2. Schneider Electric is heavily involved in working groups, which are important for machine and installation architectures, systems and products. v The bus uses a double shielded twisted pair on which, with Modicon M241 and Modicon M251 logic controllers, a maximum of 63 devices are connected by daisy-chaining or by tap junctions. v Each end of the bus must be fitted with a line terminator. On M241 controllers, this line terminator is already integrated on the master side and can be disconnected using a switch located next to the CAN connector.
