Belden Cables


CANOpen Applications

CANOpen is used for motion-oriented control networks and is used in various applications:

  • Medical equipment
  • Off-road vehicles
  • Maritime electronics
  • Railway applications
  • Building automation
CANOpen Product Specificaions

CANOpen, like some other protocols, utilizes EIA-485 cables. Traditionally, these cables required conduit for routing; however, Belden has engineered CMP listed cables which offer flame and smoke protection – providing supreme electrical performance and cost savings without the need for conduit. Options include:

  • Standard CANOpen – Belden 3105A
  • Paired constructions available: 1, 2, 3 or 4 pairs
  • Armoring options: continuous or interlock
  • Power-limited tray cable (PLTC) rating available
  • Additional jacket options: CPE available
