Does PPMAC EtherCAT Master supports Modular Devices?

Hi,

 

I want to use EtherCAT Drive support Modular Device Profile.

(One Drive, two axes operation...)

But as I know, IgH EtherCAT Master Stack doesn't support MDP devices.

 

How about PPMAC??

Does PPMAC EtherCAT Master supports MDP devices??

Hi KJCHO,

 

The current Power PMAC IDE (version 1.5.0.21) doesn't support the Modular Device Profile. As I know, the next coming version should support it.

Hi,

Currently PowerPMAC Setup tools does not support MDP . It will be supported in the future . We have not decided the timeline yet but will post as soon as we decide.

Thanks,

Atul

Is still not supported?

I'm using Power Pmac IDE version 4.1.0.24 with PPMAC NY-51 Controller (CPU:X86 Firmware:2.5.0.0)

I wish to connect to FESTO CTEU and they provide few different ESI

I'm not sure which one I should load, also the ESI Manager doesn't let load all files, I believe because there are two files with the same name.

 

They give two types, one suitable for OMRON Sysmac Studio and other type is for suitable for BECKHOFF TwinCAT

 

readme file of FESTO:

 

Festo CTEU-EtherCAT ESI files

 

Default behaviour of our CTEU-EC is Modular Device Profile (MDP).

To change it please take a look on "CTEU-EC Config fix-mdp_EN.pdf" for reprogramming the EEPROM.

 

In this package you find following ESI files for OMROM Sysmac Studio and Beckhoff TwinCAT:

OMROM

Festo CTEU-EtherCAT Modular - use it if PLC support MDP (work Sysmac Studio > V1.06)

Festo CTEU-EtherCAT Fix - can be used after reprogramming the EEPROM on most PLCs

TwinCAT

Festo CTEU-EtherCAT Modular - use it if PLC support MDP

Festo CTEU-EtherCAT Fix - USINT - can be used after reprogramming the EEPROM on all PLCs

Festo CTEU-EtherCAT Fix - BYTEARR - can be used after reprogramming the EEPROM on most PLCs

 

Please install only one Fix configuration ESI files at the same time.
