Connection to EtherCAT Control (TwinCAT)

Note: EtherCAT is a closed bus system, a direct (parallel) TCP/IP communication with a PC is not possible!

Possible engineering connections with EtherCAT:

  1. USB on the ctrlX Panel
  2. EtherCAT EOE Mailbox (system must be in PreOp or higher state)
  3. ADS Interface (control unit) (system must be in PreOp or higher state)

 

Step 1: Copy the EtherCAT ESI File (XML file) in the correct folder.
