CiA® 445: CANopen device profile for RFID devices

The CiA 445 profile specifies the CANopen interface for simple and intelligent RFID (radio frequency identification) devices, which read or write data from/to RFID transponders (also known as RFID tags). When implementing the profile, RFID device manufacturer may supply diverse application fields using the same electronic CANopen interface implementation and simply adapting the required application functionality. A system designer may choose between CANopen devices from different manufacturers implementing the same profile-compliant functionality. For development, analysis, and maintenance of the devices, off-the-shelf CANopen tools may be used.
