is there a way to configurate the I/O Cards directly with the CtrlX Core or do you always need a EtherCAT Communication? I read something about modular embedded controls but didnt find something. If yes, where can I configurate it? In I/O Engineering you are only able to Configure a EtherCAT Communication.
Solved! Go to Solution.
ctrlX I/O is an EtherCAT based I/O system.
Also for the local operation of the I/O with the ctrlX CORE plus the I/O are connected via EtherCAT.
Therefore the ctrlX I/O must also be configured here via I/O Engineering with EtherCAT.
When using Ethernet based apps like ctrlX CORE - Modbus TCP or PLC based protocols, the IOs need to be configured in ctrlX CORE Web UI or PLC.
