Layer setting services (LSS) 3.0 released

(PresseBox) ( Nuremberg, )
CAN in Automation (CiA) has released the version 3.0 of the LSS specification (CiA 305). It standardizes the node-ID and bit-rate assignment via the CANopen network. In the past, there were some implementation-related incompatibilities possible, which is not more possible with the new release. The document describes now the local layer setting state machine and give some additional implementation guidelines. LSS is often used in outdoor applications, where CANopen devices just provide the CAN interface and no other possibility to configure node-ID and bit-rate. CiA doesn’t recommend the use of SDO (service data object) services for this purpose.
