how can I configure a EtherCAT slave that is not found in the devices repository of ctrlX I/O Engineering?
The device in question is a stepper motor control unit by Trinamic.

thank you for the prompt reply.
After installing the EtherCAT slave information xml file (According to EtherCATInfo.xsd from https://www.ethercat.org/en/downloads/downloads_6A46D45EA33C47ECB2BB2686BBA963EC.htm) from the third-party supplier, the same error still occurs.
The already installed devices have an additional devdesc.xml file in the repository, which is not known to the third-party supplier as a specified file for EtherCAT communication configuration.
Is this file required by the ctrlX for EtherCAT configuration of a slave device? And if so, how can it be generated?
Thank you for your support.
