Using PPMAC EtherCAT Master without Axis Module

Hi,

 

I'm using Power PMAC EtherCAT Master.

Is it possible to use EtherCAT Master without Axis Module?

 

I tried to use only power module & cpu module, but EtherCAT Master doesn't work...

 

Furthermore, I'm considering using only cpu module with external power supply. (even without rack)

 

How can I implement these system?

 

Thank you.

Teyun.

Yes.

 

Since you don't have hardware interrupts with an axis card you must use the cpu's built in timer interrupt. In this case the cpu, power supply and ethernet card are all that is required.

 

Therefore, Sys.ServoPeriod to the desired period usually 1000msec or 500msec and Sys.CPUTimerIntr=1 then save and power cycle.

 

You must order the EtherCAT option when ordering the CPU so that you get the EtherCAT compatible network card. I assume you have done this.

 

Also there is the Power PMAC Etherlite product
