    Hello I have a system made of kontron raspberry pi, Beckhoff EK1100, EL2008, EL7201-0010, EL7201-0010, EL7201-0010

    I saw earlier posts about EL7201-0010 and their MDP742 profile, which have to be changed into DS402 profile.
    "- Configure the EtherCAT device structure using the CiA402 variant (-0001 or -0011). Enable the “expert settings” in the EtherCAT device configuration, “General” tab
    - Download and start the application (the devices will stay in error state, because their current profile does not match the configuration)
    - Open the device configuration, online tab. Execute “write E²prom xml”. Wait until this is done.
    - Re-power device
    - Restart application."
    I do this procidure for all three EL7201-0010 modules, but i always works only with one module. Because of that I left only one EL7201-0010 module, change it profile but I still have problem with system configuration (see the attached picture).

    How can I fix this problem?

    hm.. hard to say in your screenshot you have only one drive added which fails.
    Which versions are you using ?
    Runtime and CODESYS version?

    I've changed module MDP742 to DS402 using TwinCAT3, now it sees module as DS402 device, but not softmotion device. Do I need to Install something additional so Codesys will see module as softmotion device?

    if you scan the slave on the ethercat master you should be able to select ( there are '...' in the scan dialog) which device you want to use,
    either the original ESI based from Beckhoff or the SoftMotion device.
