It is possible to operate the TwinSafe terminals eg. EL6900, EL1918, EL1904, EL2904... in the ctrlX EtherCAT Bus?
If YES, how I access with TwinCAT ( TwinSafe ) the EL6900 for example, to send my TwinSafe project in it.

thank you for your question.
Please let us know what is the exact topology and application to give you more information about possible solutions or even alternatives using the compact Safety controllers SAFEX-C.1*.

in the meantime I have more information about your case. You tried to add EL6910, EL6930, EL1904, EL2904 to an EtherCAT configuration for ctrlX CORE / ctrlX PLC using ctrlX I/O Engineering.
Our safety controls ctrlX SAFETY SAFEX-C.12 / SAFEX-C.15 already provide numerous inputs / outputs and are able to act as a FSoE-Master and FSoE-Slave. Nevertheless, FSoE Slaves like EL1904, EL2904, .. can be used in combination with them.
Support of EL69xx is currently not planned. Reason: The TwinSafe-Engineering uses non-generic dialogs and a specific communicaton interface to the EL69xx and the efforts are not balanced by the value for our customers, especially due to the availablility of our SAFEX-C.1* compact safety controllers that provide
In addition they provide further advantages of
We strongly recommend to use ctrlX SAFETY SAFEX-C.12 or SAFEX-C.15 depending on the number of I/Os or Uplink functionality. For larger applications several SAFEX-C controllers can be distributed within a single EtherCAT Network using safe cross-communication between the SAFEX-C controllers.
