The following two links should be able to provide more detailed information about the system requirements and the setup steps:. The Getting started example uses most of the programing elements and the Getting started DC example uses all of them. The PDO-Configurator will output two necessary files: The Scan Slaves dialog window appears. Thank you for those documents they are exactly what I was looking for.

This number differentiates multiple module configurations in case you are using more than one module or more than one configuration with the same module. What will it send to the master? Finding More Help In addition to this tutorial, there are two documents that ship with the driver.
Pabview 7 of The Tool will add an 8-digit number at the end of the file.
NI-Industrial Communications for EtherCAT and LabVIEW Compatibility
Configuring the Master Controller After you have connected the hardware, install the required software on the host sthercat. Message 10 of Please refer to the Supported Hardware section in the link below for our recommended adapter list for real-time desktop target:. The Getting started example uses most of the programing elements ethercaat the Getting started DC example uses all of them.
At last the data exchange methods give access to the PDO and Sync data.
To use a static IP address, see the related ethercatt below. Back to Top 6. Configuration Mode and Active Mode.
Click Reboot when you are done.
If you change Number of Elements to something else, then one the configurator will create an array datatype. So is it possible to communicate to any slave hardware irrespective ethercta the manufacturer from my Master application.
In case you want to store, remove or rename ESI files manually, here are the paths to both etheecat. Can someone give me some guidence. The PDO configurator tool will save both files in the same location you choose in the file dialog. Because I want to develop a generic Master application which should communicate to different slaves of different manufacturer.
Message 4 of This tutorial will walk you through setting up the computer and module for use. Message 6 of For more information on how to migrate ethdrcat to your FPGA target, go to ni. Then, set the Variable Name and Data Type. That way the NI EtherCAT Master who uses SDO communication to read the modules product code can differentiate between multiple modules etheract your network and multiple configurations for the same module.
