Bus Coupler Beckhoff EK1100

Hi,

A customer is using CtrlX Core with Beckhoff EK1100 Ethercat modules. It scans in the CtrlX IO and loads the configuration into the DataLayer without problems.
The Ethercat Menu also shows which module is OK.
But in the PLC application, when importing the Datalayer configuration, this module does not appear.
The input and output modules connected to the EK1100 are displayed individually.

In the Expert Process Data part, there is no data to diagnose the module. Is this normal?
Thanks for your help in advance

Hello David08,

am I right, you miss the EK1100 in PLC Engineering.

Due the EK1100 doesn't have Inputs either Outputs it's not visible in "flat" view. To get the structured view, where the EK1100 is added as well, you have to enable the "Real-time-data in Data Layer View" and re-add the nodes. Than it should work.

EDIT: At least ctrlX WORKS version 1.14 is needed.

I have the same problem. I have a beckhoff EtherCat module (EK1101) with a CanOpen module (EL6751). in Ethercat master and  ctrlX IO the EL6751 is nicely visable but then in the PLC app i only see the EK1101? 

I cant seem to find the button "Real-time-data in Data Layer View"?

Hello AndroizZ,

It worked for my client.
Right click on the letters Ethercat_master_instances.

Re: Bus Coupler Beckhoff EK1100

which version of ctrlX Works / ctrlX PLC Engineering are you using? You'll need at least v1.14 RM22.03
