Everytime you need to insert your devices inside some Devicenet or CanOpen network, the master would need some driver.
Those drivers are called EDS files.
That EDS file is different for every drive, and it may be configured depending of the data that we want to send to the master.
Delta have many Inverter and Servodrives models able to communicate trough CANOpen or Devicenet, because of that I would like to introduce you to a software tool to create that specific EDS files for each drive and application.
EDSBuilder V1.01, just released a month ago, we’ll be able to create the EDS file compatible with any brand CANOpen or Devicenet network.
Of course, Delta already have CANOpen master to controll them, but this is another history.
To use this software, we will need the device to communicate, and some IFD6500 (USB-RS485 converter) to communicate with the device.
And once you have it, just follow the instruction of the following tutorial “How to create EDS via EDSBuilder”
