Suppose I have 100 PLCs which have same hardware (i.e. raspberry PI) and the PLC use EtherCAT as a fieldbus.
1) Is it possible to deploy a project by creating offline bootapp and copy it to 100 PLCs?
2) As every PLC has a unique MAC address of ethernet adapter, i need to modify the MAC address after the bootapp is coped to a new PLC, is this can be done by IEC Code or by modifying a configuration file?
1) yes just use CODESYS Automation Server doing this.
Add the Edge Gateway to the PI and have everything from remote under control - deploy - update - view webvisu - with next version
even dowload by CODESYS will be possible via Automation Server.
check this clips here:
Sure it is possible to do offline by copy the bootproject in /var/opt/codesys/PlcLogic directory (copy all files to have all) and change / add the application name
2) you could set the networkname instead of mac address
Thank you very much for your help Mr. Edwin
I would try Automation Server.
