Is it possible to connect to CtrlX Safety C15 (with engineering program) with the help of IP Channel of the Profinet Master?
The PC is to be connected to the engineering port of the XM Controller, and I want to access also the Profinet network with the use of IP Channel.
I show you a "sketch" of the connection :
Profinet Controller :
CtrlX Safety :
I followed the steps on the help section but I didn't make it (not even ping).
Does anyone have experience with network / routing and can help me?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The answer is YES from SAFEX-C.1x point of view. The "uplink" connection provides Standard Ethernet (TCP/IP) by default and provides the TCP/IP channel when under the regime of a Profinet controller.
Mainly your question is about the routing functionality of the XM controller. No subject of SAFEX-C.15 in principle.

Thanks for the help!
Another idea from the customer is also the possibility to connect via X28-X29 with CtrlX Safety Engineering, and use a switch to be able to connect to both systems (No IP-Channel then).
Then we can try the routing on the PC.
The question is, where is the IP of this port set in the CtrlX Safety Engineering?
Thanks again 😊
we are terribly sorry. On Eth1 there is no Standard-Ethernet (TCP/IP) available at the moment. The feature is technically possible but not yet scheduled on our roadmap.
The current firmware supports only EtherCAT at the Eth1 interface. By specification of EtherCAT does not allow TCP/IP to be run neither in parallel, like an IP-Channel in Sercos and Profinet, nor instead. To support Standard-Ethernet (TCP/IP) this port must be remanently reconfigured to react only on TCP/IP. But this is not available yet.
As soon as there are projects with significant weight that need it, we will add that to our roadmap.
