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 ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
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 ?
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.
