    Hello,
    I used CODESYS Control Win 64 softPLC for my testing on the PROFINET protocol. It is working with the RTC Class 1. When I want to use the RTC CLASS 3 for the IO Update interval settings, it has given error like "[ERROR]The controller does not support". So, any limitation in the CODESYS or I need to do some setting for it?.

    Are you using profinet controller or profinet device?

    I am using softPLC as my PROFINET Controller (PC) and netX90 as a PROFINET device?.

    Hello,
    I found the attached information about the PN-Controller which informed that CODESYS is not support the RTC Class 3 (CC-C). However, CIFX does support it but it is required additional hardware to use it.

    So, we can't operate RTC CLass 3 using CODESYS SoftPLC. Is my thinking correct?.

    I installed the RTE softPLC on my system and configured the required driver setting for the network adapter. However, when I select the RTC Class 3, it is still showing the "Controller does not support the selected RTE class". It is working with RTE Class 1.

    I want to check IRT communication with my device. Can someone help?.

    Hello,
    Can someone give clarification about the IRT Communication using Control RTE softPLC?.

    Not possible...at the moment.

    @eschwellinger Thank you for the clarification.

    I found that currently, it is only possible with the Hilscher CIFX. Can you clarify that if I want to use the Hilscher CIFX, it is required additional hardware to check the IRT communication or I check it like I done it with Control RTE softPLC?.

    @eschwelliner, Thank you so much.

    I want to connect Hilscher's netX90 slave with my PC and check IRT communication. So, what should I do?.

    Use a Hilscher CIFX Profinetcard on Control RTE

    Hello @eschwellinger,
    I tried with instead of adding PN controller, added CIFX PN Controller and run the program but somehow it is not working.

    Any extra stpes which I needed to do for it?.

    Add the hardware to your device and add the CIFX component to the RTE..

    Hello @eschwellinger,

    Thank you so much for your support...!!
    I am little bit confused here. Are you saying that I need additional hardware (Hilscher's CIFX) to perform the IRT test?.

    Yes, for Profinet IRT you need to have a CIFX Card in your RTE system.

    Thank you for your exceptional support...!!

    I do not have the CIFX card hardware. So, not possible for me to test IRT. Hope so, CODESYS will soon release the IRT support in softPLC.
