Professional CANopen monitor, analyzer, simulator

CANopen Magic is a versatile software tool to monitor, analyze, trace, configure, simulate and test CANopen networks and devices. It contains functions for the entire lifetime of a CANopen network: from development and test to system integration and performance analysis. Use sophisticated trace filtering and node access to monitor, analyze and test all aspects of your network. Simulate nodes that are still under development.

The simulation system supports simulation of devices based on their Electronic Data Sheet (EDS). Simulated nodes can be monitored and controlled, with process data visualisation. In addition, simulated nodes can communicate with each other and with real nodes, allowing development and testing of CANopen networks before hardware is available.
