Re: Requirements for communicating with Siemens over Profinet

At the moment we are still working on adding a PROFINET controller and device to our ctrlX COREplus. So we do not have a hardware or app for using it.

At the moment you can use a PLC based soft stack of CODESYS. See the storage area for further information.

Thanks, maybe a dumb question.

But do I understand it correctly, that using CodeSys on ctrlX it is possible to connect a Siemens PLC with a ctrlX Core device? 

From a hardware point of view, the cable will still be connecting the Siemens PLC though our multiEthercat on the ctrlX Core ?

Re: Requirements for communicating with Siemens over Profinet

The PLC soft stack would run in the ctrlX PLC app and would use one of the standard Ethernet ports (XF51, XF10) for the communication not the EtherCat port (XF50). Which one will be declared by the IP set in the code in the PLC.

For control interfaces see our online documentation:
"ctrlX CORE Controls, Operating Manual  -->  Interfaces  -->  Interface description"

What is this licence that the soft stack profinet master is requiring? I can't find any place to enter any licence and in the package manager it says no licence required.

It's a CODESYS license. Please take a look at the CODESYS homepage.

To install this codesys license please take a look at the latest post of this issue. https://developer.community.boschrexroth.com/t5/ctrlX-WORKS/Version-Control-SVN-or-GIT/m-p/21397#M24...

Re: Requirements for communicating with Siemens over Profinet

You are right. We have now this license / Add-On in your ctrlX STORE too. (Sorry for confusing...)

To get the Add-On package you can download it by pressing the "Get in now" Button

To get the license you have to order by BoschRexroth by using this number.

 

Additional there is a manual how to install the package/license at the end of the  Store page .
