Beckhoff EL72x1 DS402 conversion

    How can I convert the EL7211 from mdp72 to ds402?

    When I click the write EEPROM button it asks for a .bin file. So could you please send me this file to complete the update. Cant find it in beckhoff site.

    I passed that step and converted the module to the DS402 but still cant turn the motor.

    I can not see a page for configuring the motor parameters.

    I read the motor pos from the codesys drive general screen.

    When I run the mc_power command I get a small movement and then warning leds lit and I read the following warnings and error messages from codesys which you can see in the attachments. Could it be because I did not configure the motor parameters? if yes how can I do it? You see the configuration page is empty.

    Best Regards,

    I will check but I saw in the forum that there is a comment that it would work without the realtime patch.

    Could you please comment about my questions also about the motor parameters configuration and startup parameters section.

    Did you manage to configure the EL7211?
    Did you find the motor files? I found it only in .xml but I don't know how to install ...
