SLICE I/O Quick-Start Guide: CANopen Network
In order to get a CANOpen network running with SLICE I/O, you will need to perform three major steps:
This tutorial assumes that you have already properly installed and configured a compatible SynqNet motion controller that supports CANopen SLICE I/O on a CANopen network.
Wiring of SLICE I/O Hardware
Once you have a properly installed an MEI motion controller that supports CANopen, you will need to properly wire the CANopen Network Adapter (TSIO-1002) and the adjoining slices.
The diagram below shows how to properly wire a CANopen Network Adapter to the CANopen Network. To see an enlarged version, see Wiring Examples.
The diagram below shows how you can connect multiple CANopen Network Adapters (nodes) on a single network. The same wiring logic for each node follows the diagram above.
Once you have properly wired the CANopen Network Adapter(s), you will need to add the desired SLICE I/O modules onto the adapter.
Proper CAN firmware must be downloaded onto the Slice-I/O node.
You must download a firmware version that is 002.B.1 or higher.
You can download CAN firmware in Motion Console.
The CAN Firmware Version information is displayed in the CAN Network Summary window under the Version tab.
The two switches on the network adapter are used to set the bit rate and node address. The CANopen SLICE-I/O network adapter is configured by the factory for automatic baud rate detection.
If you are using the auto-detection of bit rate (default
from factory), skip to Step 2 and set the node address.
In Motion Console, reset the controller to bring up the CANopen network.
To verify that you have properly set the Bit Rate, you can check the CAN Network Summary window under the Config tab for the following settings:
The LEDs should also be functioning as follows:
Fore more information about LEDs, see the LED Indicators section for the CANopen Network Adapter.
NOTE: The information in the CAN Network Summary window will NOT change when the SLICE is turned ON.
