    now if i was smart.. i'd look at what i was doing when i started... so looking at the early pictures of the project you can see i'd actualy started with it right.. but managed to get it more wrong.. anyway .. i've just had a issue with the comms loosing sync.. so i might need to tweek the settings a bit, before its perfect..

    and as if by magic.. Eschwellinger has the answer.. so ... from what i can tell its not as simple as just doing what i did.. which was do a scan on the ethercat bus, add it to the project, and then add a generic DS402 softmotion device.. oh no... so .. i needed to pay attention to the icons.. there is one that looks like a grey computer box.. and when i searched down in the list i found one that matched the servo drive.. so if you do an "update device" to that.. you get grey computer box icon.. (which...

    many many moons ago.. I started this... and I've been super busy on trying to get it sorted.. and thats led me down the path of getting to know what I'm doing.. and how things should work.. and well.. like always.. time goes by.. and things get pushed in front of other things.. but anyway .. I took a look at it today .. but using the code from a much better coder than me.. (his youtube channel is called "black" https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeOa8aEiV8CdAO9dCp7PATA (this should be the link to the...

    WOW... thats massive.. and also important to know.. so let me just check what that looks like.. (for my own sanity .. and to see if i understand what your talking about.. ) if you have some program code that uses a function block to control a servo over ethercat, like Power_on, or the Jog function block.. that code needs to be running under the Ethercat Task in the task configuration part of the devices tab in codesys.. like in this picture.. so by doing this you are getting the ethercat "driver"...

    My progress has been patchy... I can get the drive to go online, and it looks to be handling the ethercat traffic, I get drive feedback, and if you command the drive it shows as busy, but no motion, I have tried all the scaling options I can think of... But nothing seems to help, the frustration is the drive is fully working from CX drive or the config mode... It's clearly something in a config somewhere Pb

    I just saw that the device was a slave... So indeed that might not help... I think I will upgrade the pi at some point, but I do worry a little about how the codesys runtime licence transfer works... So I want to test that first...

    Morning coders. so the path to somewhere is not always clear when you start out.. but i think i can safely say that, if you want to get there... I'd not start from here.. so what are my main learnings.. so i've no doubt the omron drive works.. but as i was not able to get any support from omron about there hardware using codesys and a raspberry pi, i was sort of stuck.. now my Savch engineering friends in china were able to get it working with codesys on the pi and it was very easy for them... but...

    Wow... one month ago you asked a question that seems to be the same general question that I'm looking to solve.. so can you help me and let me know what the status of this is now... have you managed to solve it.. Pb.
