    Hello
    I’m trying to use EtherCAT with “CODESYS Control RTE V3”, but some errors were occurred

    and I wasn’t able to resolve them. Now, I use Codesys V3.5 SP14 and the target of RTE is also Version 3.5.14.

    I find no problem compiling the program but the problem comes when I try to download to RTE PLC.
    In addition, I have already added CmpHilischerCIFX as additional component and have changed some values in the CODESYSControl.cfg. Nevertheless, current errors and the errors before changing were same.

    Could you give me any advice?

    For your information, I attempted to use EtherCAT with Control Win V3 64x and it ran without even errors and I use the builder machine (VM ware on Ubuntu for using Windows applications), and use the Intel 825742L as the network interface.
    Best regards,

    Hi,
    you need to install the CODESYS network driver for the Intel network interface. ( Windows Device Manager)
    Then the add the component (CmpEt1000Drv) in the RTE configuration, this Hilscher card is not possible to use for EtherCAT.

    See:
    https://help.codesys.com/webapp/_cds_rt ... n=3.5.14.0

    RTE should run on an real machine not on an virtual environment.

    Dear Edwin,

    I appreciate your great information, and I apologize for responding late.
    I gave up to use the virtual machine and changed to the real machine.

    However, the control RTE doesn't work on real PC.

    I tried to use on 3 PC. On one PC, the Control RTE runs but it doesn't run on the others.
    Although I click the "Start PLC" command, there is no response.

    If you give me a information why RTE doesn't run that would be much appreciated.

    PC 1; Intel core i3, Windows 7: RTE runs.
    PC 2; Intel core i3, Windows 10: RTE doesn't run.
    PC 3; Intel Pentium gold, Windows 10: RTE doesn't run.

    I need to use PC 2 or 3.

    *All of the Codesys and the Control RTE are same version, V3.5 SP13 and V3.5.13.0 respectively.

    Thank you,
    Best regards,

    Hi,
    which processor type is this ( PC 2 and 3?)
    You need have an exclusive core for Control RTE on Windows 10 ( 64Bit) Systems..
    This is mandatory.

    Hi,

    The types of processor are as follow:

    PC 1; Intel core i3 i3-6100U CPU 2.30 GHz, 2 cores, Windows 7: RTE runs.
    PC 2; Intel core i3 i3-6006U CPU 2.00 GHz, 1 core, Windows 10: RTE doesn't run.
    PC 3; Intel Pentium gold CPU G4560 3.50 GHz 2 cores, Windows 10: RTE doesn't run.

    Best regards,

    Hi,
    PC2 and PC3 both have two cores I think,
    so both must possible to have it up and running with Control RTE.

    Following things to check:
    - stable CPU Clock setting (disable speedstep/C-states etc) - to check with CPUZ ( google it) - to run CPUZ - do not start Control RTE!
    Please use current version 3.5SP14 for doing this.

    Hi,

    I checked the CPU Clock. The results are as follow:

    i3-6006U CPU @ 2.00GHz:
    Core Speed: 1995.12 MHz
    Multiplier: x 20.0 (4-20)
    Bus Speed: 99.73 MHz

    Pentium (R) CPU G4560 @ 3.50GHz
    Core Speed: 3490.59 MHz
    Multiplier: x 35.0 (8-35)
    Bus Speed: 99.78 MHz

    As long as I checked, I don't think that there is problem regarding the clock frequency.

    In all of computers, "Control Win" works without problem. Do I need anything to run "Control RTE"?

    Best regards,
