We provide pre-terminated CAN bus cables for our drives that support the CANopen communications protocol, including the AKD™ Series and the S700 Series.
Information for Building Your Own CAN Cables:
According to ISO 11898, you should use a bus cable with a characteristic impedance of 120 Ω. For best results, we recommend CAT5e cable. The usable cable length depends on the transmission rate. The following measured values can be taken as a guide, but they should not be interpreted as limits. Construction details can be found in the AKD/S700 Accessories Manual
Cable length, depending on the transmission rate
Transmission rate/kbps : 1000 ; 500 ; 250
Maximum cable length/m : 20 ; 70 ; 115
