How to integrate CETONI devices

Connectivity Guide

Connectivity Guide

Find the optimal solution for your control application

We offer you a variety of possibilities for the integration of our devices. Where other manufacturers offer RS232 interfaces and serial protocols for the connection, we provide modern interfaces such as USB or CAN, the standardized open communication protocol CANopen and extensive, convenient programming libraries.

All device parameters can be accessed by CANopen-capable applications and controllers via the CAN interface. The use of the CAN bus and standardized CANopen device profiles guarantee the expandability of the system. The Connectivity Guide supports you in your search for information on the integration / connection of our devices to your control solution.


I would like to control my devices with a standard PC or notebook.

Windows PC

Windows PC

I want to use a Windows PC with Windows 7, 8 or Windows 10.

Windows PC with LabVIEW

LabVIEW on Windows PC

I want to integrate the devices into LabVIEW. My LabVIEW software is installed on a Windows PC.

Linux PC

Linux PC

I use Linux on an x86 PC and want to control the devices with a Linux application.


I want to connect the CETONI devices to a PLC.

Beckhoff Steuerung

Beckhoff / WAGO

I use a Beckhoff or WAGO PLC with CAN bus interface.

Siemens SIMATIC S7

Siemens SIMATIC S7

I would like to connect the neMESYS syringe pumps to my Siemens SIMATIC S7 controller.


PLC of another vendor

We use a PLC from another vendor. Our PLC has a CAN or RS232 interface.

Custom embedded system

We use our own embedded control solution with RS232 interface.

Embedded Controller

Embedded Controller

We use our own embedded control solution to control the neMESYS syringe pumps. Our embedded system has CAN or RS232 interfaces.
