CiA® 425 series: CANopen application profile for medical diagnostic add-on modules

The profile specifies the CANopen communication between medical sub-systems (diagnostic devices) and their add-on modules. It covers the general definitions (part 1) and the CANopen interface for injector devices (part 2).

Injectors from different manufacturers implementing this profile may be attached to a diagnostic device via a standardized CANopen interface. Thus, a diagnostic device manufacturer does not need to hold several spare injectors available. The same injector interface implementation may be also used in diverse diagnostic devices of one manufacturer.
