I read Panic Mode response on this topic. What means that bus is dead? As configuration or phisicaly?
I have EK1100 with EL1008 and EL2004, ended with EL9010, KRC4 K8.3.18.
Configuration is well done but not assigned yet I/O signals, mapping not yet realised. Could be this the reason of message error?
EK1100 leds are lighten, 24 VDC connected, and Ethercat cable goes into X44 on CCU.
""KRC4 controllers use EtherCat for most things (there are several buses). and EtherCat has some nice things but one of the issues (at least in KUKA implementation) is that if you add or remove node from one of EtherCat buses, that bus is going to be pretty much dead. Even devices that were working fine before will no longer work simply because you connected one more node (or disconnected). once the bus is dead, you will see messages telling that one or more of previously working devices cannot communicate any more. in your case you connected something to an existing bus and transport of messages stops because they don't know which way to pass the data around.to make it work with you MUST makes sure that physical connections and configuration match - at all times. KRC4 does not allow hot plugging or pasivating of EtherCat devices.so you need to use WorkVisual to add new devicethan should make KEB bus happy (interface X44). it still remain to be seen how are you going to use them (if KUKA options support more than one force sensor).""
What means you need to add new device and make KEB bus happy?
