Issue Details

I have a CompactRIO-9012. Can I use this to control my AKD (Advanced Kollmorgen Drive)?

Solution

To use a CompactRIO as an EtherCAT master, it must be listed as a supported master under the NI-Industrial Communications for EtherCAT Readme. For instance, here is theĀ NI-Industrial Communications for EtherCAT 18.0 Readme. To find your specific driver Readme, refer to this article.
