    Hi,
    just ust the examples from the SoftMotion package:

    "c:\Program Files\CODESYS 3.5.14.0\CODESYS\Projects\SoftMotion\4.5.0.0\Examples\Tutorial\PLCopenMulti.project"

    To have them running with your axis, just add CANbus-CANopenManager_SoftMotion_ followed by your drives.

    (rename the virtual axis from the example.

    is this device CIA DS402 compliant?
    Could you attach the EDS?

    Edwin,
    When i add the SM_DRIVE402 generic device to my elmo drive the mode of operation(0x6060) is always set to 8
    this is controled by the driver ? is it possible to select another operation mode ?

    Hi,
    you could use MC_Power, MC_Move... all PLCopen Fb's.
    If you want to command the axis manually ( do everything by your own) no need to add the SoftMotion drive...
    But it is alot easier with the functionblocks.

    hi even if i am not using any function block
    my mode of operation is set at 8, is it the SM_genericDS402 driver which set that value is it possible to modify it, that enable only cyclic synchronous position mode

    Hi,
    at the moment you could not change this manually ( I mean if you use the SoftMotion drive the modes are commanded by the driver/Softmotion)
    But usually this is how to use it... I guess you just need to figure out why your drive/axis is in error state.
    If it is a DS402 compliant drive you may adjust these values here for your drive:

    Keep in mind that this additional page/views only occure if you enable Tools-options->device editor->
    By the way with the upcoming 3.5SP15 release there is a new function to make it possible to write manually the PDO's from the application.
    (SMC_SetController mode to 0 ) will decoulple the mappings to the SoftMotion FB's.
