We're testing a CANopen network consisting of a V570 as Master and an IFM CR0403 PLC acting as a Slave. We are using VisiLogic 8.6.2, and because of the installed base, we are not planning to upgrade to anything newer. In Info-Mode, we can see the TPDO messages arrive, as well as our NMT Control and Status messages. We can set the Slave in and out of Operational Mode (although only using CANID == 0, ie. All, rather than == 2 which is the Slave CanID, strangely enough). But we are not able to get our single RPDO message to go. - Is there anything particular we have to do in Info-Mode to see RPDO messages? We're sending our RPDO message every 500 mSec. My understanding is that messaging is unsolicited, so we don't need any special setup at the other end to receive the message. When we first tested, the RPDO message briefly worked, and then stopped. We are going to go back and try to re-create what we did. We've stripped out everything except the CANbus programming to simplify testing. We tried with a second V570 and had no success. Since we don't see the RPDO in Info-Mode, we are assuming the problem is with the Master, not the Slave. The V570's are new. - Is there anything in the Firmware of the current 570's that would interfere with RPDO's programmed with Version 8.6.2? - Can we use the "Log to SD Card" feature of the CANbus sniffer with a new V570?
