CiA 436: Application profile for construction machineries

This application profile provides general definitions as well as recommendations for using CANopen control networks in construction machineries. The application profile introduces the virtual control architecture for construction machineries, integrating the engine control system, the drivers' desk, the sensor control system, the transmission control system, the fleet management control system as well as the control system for the superstructures used in construction machineries. The CANopen profile also provides among others the recommendations for node-ID assignment, for type of used connectors and for implementation of the redundant as well as safety-related communication.
