Electronic Datasheets (EDS) are files which describe the capabilities of CANopen nodes, and are therefore central to CANopen. EDS files are most commonly used when CANopen modules are sold or made available to third parties. They provide a standardized and easy to use format for describing how CANopen nodes can be integrated into networks. They can also serve as an in-house documentation of the node.

CANopen Architect allows quick and easy generation and editing of EDS files. Files can be built from scratch or based on one of the versions in the included library. The user interface presents the contents of the EDS file in a tree view, allowing quick and easy editing of any aspect.

CANopen Architect also supports the creation and editing of Device Configuration Files (DCF). DCFs are the same as EDS files but contain real settings from a specific node. Unlike many other EDS editors, CANopen Architect supports the editing of data that is specific to DCFs.


The following is a list of features in CANopen Architect. The list is not exhaustive by any means, but does give a good overview of the abilities of CANopen Architect.
