CANopen Magic Lite is an easy to use but sophisticated utility for accessing and controlling nodes on a CANopen Network. It allows read and write accesses to the process data and the configuration variables of CANopen nodes. Single nodes or entire networks can be configured, monitored, analyzed and tested. It works with multiple low cost CAN interfaces.

CANopen Magic Lite is the same as CANopen Magic Standard but only supports PEAK CAN interfaces and does not have a command line. Although there is a small overlap in the features and functionality between the Lite, Standard and Pro versions, the Pro version contains a large number of enhancements and improvements over the regular version, making it more suitable for professional development assistance.
