Control Area Network (CAN) bus, is a high-integrity serial bus system originally created as an automotive vehicle bus, which later came to be used as one of the fieldbuses for industrial automation. CANopen® is a CAN-based communication system. It comprises higher-layer protocols and profile specifications and provides a physical and data link layer for serial communication with speeds up to 1 Mbps. CANopen and DeviceNet are higher level protocols standardized on top of CAN bus to allow interoperability with devices on the same industrial network. CANopen supports 127 nodes on the network while DeviceNet supports 64 nodes on the same network.

EPC CANopen encoders use communication profile CiA 301 and device profile CiA 406 V3.2 class C2.
