DeviceNet is a CAN based Layer 7 protocol, which was originally developed by Allen Bradley. Operation of DeviceNet is based on an object-oriented communications model. DeviceNet is maintained by the "Open DeviceNet Vendor Association (ODVA)" and can be implemented free of license. ( DeviceNet is widely used in US factory automation.

CAN/CANOpen Implementations


J1939 Implementations

ISO-TP (Transport Layer) - ISO 15765-2

OSI Layer 3 and 4 protocol, to manage packet sizes up to 4095 bytes of payload. The addressing (CAN IDs) is not changed. The additional protocol overhead is 1 or 2 bytes in each packet (so data is reduced to 7 or 6 bytes per packet) and an additional return package (flow control frame).
