Hi All,
I have done various tests with ethercat on the raspberry Pi and codesys, including virtual drives etc.
However I would like to ask how to use a Beckhoff Ax5000 series drive and Am8032 Motor.
I have installed the Device repository and scanned the system and found the drive unit.
But at this point I am stuck, the ethercat does't run on the servo drive and I am not sure how to tell codesys the motor type.

Any pointers would be a great help thanks.

Hi,
you need to do two things for this:
1. Use a rt_preempt patched Linux Kernel/ SD Image on the PI
2. You need to have/use Twincat to export the SDO startup parameter (which contains drive and motorconfiguration) set them up in twincat / Export them as XML file and import them in CODESYS
see screenshot.
