Curious where CANopen is used? 

As CANopen is integrated into deeply embedded networks, we often don't know about  its usage unless somebody tells us about it...

The following application examples were found in magazines, on-line publications or newsgroups/mailinglists and all do not only use the CANbus/CAN bus/Controller Area Network but specifically the higher-layer protocol CANopen.

For a list of commercially available CANopen nodes and products, see the CANopen product guide and product database at www.canopen.org
