I Can't Find My Real-Time Controller's EtherCAT in NI-Max

Updated Jun 15, 2018

Issue Details

I have an EtherCAT device connected through a Real-Time Controller.  I can see the Controller and the other devices I have connected to it from NI-MAX, but cannot see my EtherCAT.

Solution

If you use NI-MAX to install NI-Industrial Communications for EtherCAT software on a Real-Time Controller, some controllers, such as the Embedded Vision System, require you to install the Industrial Controller Device Drivers of the same version.

If this driver is not installed, NI-MAX will be unable to discover the controllers.
