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
Solved! Go to Solution.
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"?
I just got a new ctrlX CORE. I wanted to do the same as descrbied above in this thread namely, controlling beckhoff modules.
I cant seem to see the EL6751 (CANopen master) module in my plc engineering. I can see him in ethercat master and ctrlX IO.
I have set real-time in datalyer view on.
Why can't i see the EL6751 module in plc?
by default the EL6751 related processdata is empty - since depending on the project (Mapping of processdata dep. on CAN-Setup[ which slave, what data Cmds/Acts/...], IOs.. ). Mapping of CAN-Objects 0x180/0x200 etc.. to the corresponding ECAT-Object...which will be mapped to the ECAT.
Means as long as not Process-data was mapped manually there will no data-container be visible on the ctrlX.
Find below an example showing how it can look like/be tested.
ctrlX_IOEng and Web-UI
The EL6751 is not covered with our dialogs yet. If startup-Parameters needs to be written the ctrlX_IOEng may not support yet in full range. Consider to generate an startup-Paramter export out of TwinCat. That will be able to import in the corresponding ctrlXEng dialog.
the above optimistic description made in offline mode can not be confirmed by approval-test done today. Tried to setup an EK1914 ECAT-coupler with the EL6751 CANMAster module and could not set it up.
Unfortunatley no workaround im mind. Further time schedule can not be forecast.
Will provide further info as soon the device gets supported properly.
