Slave's device profile XML file | 05 Oct 2021 | |

Slave's device profile XML file

Hello, 

I would like to have the XML file to communicate with a servo (AKD-P01207-NBCC-E000) and Motor Kollmorgen (AKM73Q-GNCNC-00) by EtherCAT with a master (cRIO-National Instrument). After according to the documentation, I need to adding Third-Party EtherCAT Slaves to NI Master Controllers. Do you known where Can I find this file ? Thank you for your helps.

Regard.

NI has some instruction and manuals on how to connect a AKD to the cRIO they should be the best source for this.
Maybe this can get you started (if you don't already found it or others finding the same post).
