I am stuck with trying to implement a servo motor, and not sure how to go from here. I have been using the example programs from the unitronics and i cannot get the programs to say the servo is connected. I have connected the CANBus wires according to the picture that i have attached that i found on the unitronics website. My group has never dealt with CAN networks before so we are all starting from scratch. I believe i have to use UniCAN Nodes but am not sure, currently i am just trying to just get the example program working, I am using the "Go to Position By Velocity Block" program. When I connect the computer to the PLC in online mode, no messages are dropped but none are received i attached a picture of the communications. Everywhere online i look for help i see that unilogic is great for this but all support I've found is for visilogic, not sure if I should switch to visilogic but I have been using unilogic. I have set up the plc, motor controller, and motor numbers in the project. The models are-

Motor: UMM-0004BA-B4

Motor Drive: UMD- 0004B-B3

PLC: USP-070-B10

You must connect +V CAN connector  to the +24V, and  -V CAN connector  to the 0V(GND). CAN module must be powered via external (separated or not separated power supply).

i have added those wires to a 24V power supply but am still not getting the the servo to be marked as connected. There is  an image on the program that shows the status of the motor, it constantly shows as motor disconnected.
