I have CODESYS Softmotion installed and also have both the licenses uploaded in a ctrlX Core. I have set up a 3 Axis in my ctrlX Core and also in PLC Engineering. I followed the instructions of the videos on this page. https://developer.community.boschrexroth.com/t5/Store-and-How-to/Quick-Start-Guide-ctrlX-AUTOMATION-...
When setting up a virtual drive it is easy to power on, but how do I power on an actual drive? It does not seem to work as it seems like PLC engineering does not recognize that there are real axis configured. Please see screenshot attached where I am trying to power on SM_Drive_EtherCAT_SOE_Rexroth drive. When downloading the program, logging in and then trying to power it on with the Visualization it does not power on, but setting up a Vitual Drive works find.
Please let me know if anything is unclear and if you need any more information to assist?
Solved! Go to Solution.
We have added a how to document CODESYS Softmotion - How to configure ctrlX CORE and Drives .
The section PLC Engineering describes which PLC settings are required. Does this help?
