I'm trying to set up a cRIO 9057 as the EtherCAT master for my system. On the cRIO I have System Image 21.5, programming environment LabView 2021, and NI Industrial Communications for EtherCAT version 21.5. On the development PC I'm running LabView 2021, with the EtherCAT package V21.5. When I go to the project and try to add a EtherCAT Master device under the cRIO, it doesn't show up as an option. The only option I have under targets and Devices is "CompactRIO Chassis". Did I miss something?
Hello experts, I would like to ask if there is any way to initialize NI EtherCAT Master with a EtherCAT Network Information (ENI) file. The ENI file can be generated by any EtherCAT Configurator that provides information about EtherCAT Network with number of slaves and Distributed Clocks. I am trying to use NI EtherCAT Master to communicate with third-party EtherCAT Slaves strand. Thanks in advance. Regards
