That way the NI EtherCAT Master who uses SDO communication to read the modules product code can differentiate between multiple modules in your network and multiple configurations for the same module. The library can be used to: Configuration Mode and Active Mode. If you change Number of Elements to something else, then one the configurator will create an array datatype. In addition to this tutorial, there are two documents that ship with the driver.

Solved: Use a PC as an NI EtherCAT master – Discussion Forums – National Instruments

Because I want to develop a generic Master application which should communicate to different slaves of different manufacturer. SDOs are used for non-cyclic communication, which is typically configuration.

The PDO-Configurator will output two necessary files: Then, set the Variable Name and Data Type. This tutorial will walk you through setting up the computer and module for use. Message 7 of Installing Software on the Real-Time Controller.

Click on Empty Project. These are core questions to determining the type and number of PDOs to create. CVI is not supported. Click Reboot when you are done. For more information on how to migrate this to your FPGA target, go to ni.

The Scan Slaves dialog window appears. The first option Scan Interface autodiscovers any slaves connected to the controller. Port 1 on the NI is on the top.

It adds time synchronization to the Ethercat network. If working with a third party master, consult their documentation on how to add a slave to the network. In case you want to store, remove or rename ESI files manually, here are the paths to both locations:. It’s clear that I wasn’t thinking about this problem correctly.
