CiA® 436 series: CANopen application profile for construction machines

The profile specifies the use of CANopen networks on construction machineries by introducing the virtual control architecture. The latter integrates the interfaces to the (diesel) engine control system, the drivers’ desk, the sensor control system, the transmission control system, the fleet management control system, and the implement (superstructure) control system. CiA 436-1 specifies the integration network with the interfaces to the mentioned sub-systems. For each sub-system a separate application profile is specified (CiA 415 for sensor control) or is in development within further sub-parts of the CiA 436.
