It is specially designed being commanded and controlled as a slave node in the CANopen network.
Is it possible to connect the MAXON EPOS to a NI PCI CAN/2 card?
I'm using LABVIEW RT on a target pc desktop.
Is it possible to configure the CANopen protocol in LABVIEW RT?
Thank you for your answers.
You will need to use a high-speed CAN device to communicate with the Maxon EPOS Motion Controller. I was able to find a KB article which mentions it:
Program a Maxon EPOS Motion Controller from LabVIEW
CANOpen is built upon the NI-CAN driver and the NI-CAN driver supports specific products on LabVIEW RT which includes the PCI CAN card that you have mentioned. Have a look at the NI-CAN 2.6.1 Readme.
So, it seems to me that you are good to go. Read both the articles that I have linked and post back if you have any questions.
