CANopen in cranes and other lifting equipment
The next profile developments will standardize interfaces for aerial working platform applications (CiA 851). This includes device profiles for overload protection and operator (seat) subsystems as well as recommended practices for already existing profiles (remote I/O panels, hydraulic components, etc.). CiA calls for experts to participate in this standardization activity. In particular, machine builders are needed. They should influence the standardization, so that the CANopen profiles to be developed meet their system requirements. Interested parties may contact the international nonprofit organization, to receive more detailed information (email@example.com).
