ctrlX Drive - File Over Ethercat (FoE)

Hello Team, 

In order to load the configuration file of the drive from the a TwinCat controller, we want to know if the file Over EtherCat (FoE) function is supported by ctrlx Drive, and what is the procedure to use it ?

 

Thanks.

Since firmware/runtime version AXS-V-0304 from July 2021 FoE function is being supported.

In the beginning with the exception of not being able to use the reboot command. Latest AXS-V0306 supports this "Reboot" function.

Hello, 

 

Thanks for your feedback, for the use case described above, : Load a paremeter file with FoE in the drive, do you have a quick how-to example to show ? 

 

Thanks.

The FoE function can be used to update the firmware.

Loading a parameter file for the drive is not supported.
An example for updating the FWA does not yet exist for TwinCat 3 in conjunction with CtrlX-DRIVE.
