ECAT won't scan...


Recommended Posts

When attempting to scan an EtherCAT network consisting of:
Beckhoff EK1100-EL9510-EL3356 
I get the following EC-Engineer error messages:
I’ve tried reloading the ESI file (EL9xxx.xml), resetting Ecat, etc… all to no avail.
If I remove the EL9510 (power insertion module) the network will scan and work normally.
Any advice on how to fix this would be much appreciated!!
System:  CK3M ver.,  IDE ver

It sounds like the xml file is incorrect. Have you successfully used that file before? 
The first thing I’d do is I open the xml file alongside one from another device and look to see if the format looks similar.  I’ve had xml device files which are  formatted completely different and won’t work. I can only assume they were created for a different type of system.
if the format does look similar to other device files then it may be corrupted. I’d be trying to find another version of the file to compare
