At the moment we do not provide a CanOpen master in the ctrlX CORE.
We made successfully tests with a USB to Can adapter (R902602780) and a Can master setup with ROS. This driver should be available from release RM21.03 (version 1.8.x) on.
But this is not handled in our realtime scheduling, so we do not give any commitment to real time capabilities of this interface.

We are currently using a RS485 to MQTT gateway from ADFweb in combination with teh ctrlX core. This way we are adding support for RS485 devces.
I see ADFweb also hs a CAN gteway so thismight be a solution for you too.: https://www.adfweb.com/home/default.asp
You can concert to many different protocols so there might be one which fits you.

Please beware that you will always get some communication delays when using protocol converters/gateways.

Was the CodeSys library used for this USB to CAN test?

Like mentioned above an ROS snap was used for my tests. So no PLC was included.
