Communicating via the CANopen protocol - 3.x Guide

Gocator supports various protocols that let the sensor communicate directly with a PLC. If your PLC uses a protocol not supported by Gocator, you must convert between the unsupported protocol and a supported one.

This guide shows how to interface to a Gocator via the CANopen protocol, using a Hilscher gateway to convert from CANopen to the Modbus protocol, which is supported by the Gocator.

Fully Control a Gocator Multi-sensor System with Open Source SDK - 3.x Guide

Gocator sensors can be synchronized to scan large objects at high resolution. A common requirement is to precisely control the timing of each sensor to avoid interference in areas where the measurement zones overlap, often referred to as “cross talk” between sensors.

The application note explains how users can work with the Gocator Software Development Kit (SDK) to fully control the multi-sensor system.

This application note includes example code developed using the Gocator Software Development Kit.

Set Up Implicit Messaging with Allen-Bradley PLCs

Implicit messaging has advantages and disadvantages. Implicit messaging is faster than explicit messaging and is therefore ideal for time-critical applications. However, data delivery is not guaranteed when using implicit messaging, so it is more suited to applications where occasional data loss is acceptable.

This guide describes how to set up implicit messaging (Cyclic and Change of State) with Allen-Bradley PLCs. The RSLogix 5000 programming tool is used.
