Hi Madhumati,

Your CANopen master does not comply with CANopen, it is a fake. CANopen requires the support of SDOs. You can use SDOs instead of PDOs, but not vice versa. Please give me the name of the company, because CANopen is our Trademark. We will stop the company to sell the product with a CANopen label.

Best regards,
