EUROMAP 27 updated
The six parts of the recommendation EUROMAP 27 "Pipe and Profile Extrusion Lines - Generic CANopen Interface" have been updated. The specifications was jointly developed by the Technical Commission of EUROMAP in cooperation with CAN in Automation (CiA) and include CANopen profiles for puller (part 2), corrugator (part 3), saw (part 4), simple and advanced co-extruder (part 5), and calibration-table (part 6). An identical text is published under CiA 420 "CANopen Profiles for extruder downstream devices".
The update was mainly editorial such as text improvements and corrections. In the saw profile an actual groove counter has been introduced as well as a product groove set value. The puller profile now also specifies an automatic diameter adaptation. Part 1 describing some general definitions has also been improved editorially. Additionally, the recommended node-ID assignment is now normative.back to newslist
