i would like to update my ctrlX Core ("standalone" Core X3 at the moment V1.18) to V1.20. In my application i have a XVR, two XMS and three XMD all with the Firmware "AXS-V-0308N-NN.03"
In the release notes from the V1.20 i found a table (3.1.2) wich says that if i have a drive wiht a integrated Core that it is necessary to update the firmware of the drive to AXS-V-0316 or AXS-V-0402 ...
Does this also apply for the Standalone core or only for the ctrlx-Drive Plus/ Drive integrated core?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The current hard link between ctrlX CORE and ctrlX DRIVE runtime only applies to the drive integrated combination as there it needs to fit to each other.
A standalone ctrlX CORE can have versions independent of ctrlX DRIVE (or 3rd party drives) connected to the EtherCat. We recommend to have the same runtime on all drives in a machine but it is not a must.
