We have been using codesys since SP12. We bought some ethercat drives from Cannon Automata (SMC3) and successfully used Softmotion for the past couple of years. We were very happy back then, it was a simple and cost effective solution. Recently, the softmotion license was removed from the raspberry pi SL target and moved to the Raspberry Pi MC target only. Fine, we bought some more licenses to upgrade our runtimes.
... However, since we upgraded to SP16.4, it seems the softmotion license has once more moved away from the Raspberry Pi target ... Can you please confirm it's a bug and that the softmotion license (the standard one, just for one axis P2P, not a fully loaded robotics + CNC system) will be included back in the raspberry pi MC runtime ?
I guess that if softmotion is not included anymore in the raspberry pi MC runtime, it will not be worth it anymore (the hardware manufacturers provide similar solutions, with similar cost, but with more technical support).
Please comment, correct, ... do something.
