This wiki is about the CANopen technology used in a lift. Here we discuss the topics application profile, technical solutions, products and applications and we will present some references with this technology.
This wiki is attended by the CANopen-Lift community, the members of the SIG Lift and of the MG Lift. You are cordially invited to add your own content to this subject. If you do don't know how to do this refer to our tutorial.
Currently, this wiki is biliterate. In year 2002 we began with a German website and in year 2005 with a German wiki. CANopen's increasing awareness in more and more countries all over the world brought us to the decision of setting up an English wiki, too, in order to meet the demand of information.
At this time you will find most of the information only on the German part of this wiki but we are working hard on translating. If you liked to help us, contact the Webmin, please.
We hope you enjoy your visit and draw inspiration from this wiki.
In the period from 17th to 20th October 2023 the world's largest trade fair for elevator technology Interlift 2023 took place in Augsburg/Germany.
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the first participation in the Interlift of SIG Lift, CiA was again represented with an information booth on the subject of CANopen-Lift. They informed about CANopen-Lift and presented the CANopen-Lift demo wall to show the wide range of available CANopen-Lift devices.
Interlift 2025 will be held for the first time in Nuremberg, CiA's home city. Whether CiA will be present there with its own stand will be decided by the members of MG Lift in the coming year.

The Heilbronn University started a a research project, that aims at various aspects of the automation of elevators with CANopen, such as compliance testing "in the loop" and the possibilities of telemetry and remote diagnostics.
The goal of the project is an elevator system model built in 1:10 scale and controlled via original CANopen components.
