I intend to use a Codesys 3.5 CLP and Softmotion to control a SEW Movidrive B driver by CanOpen or EtherCAT.
I know that the SEW driver does not support CIA DS402... they currently have Movidrive C, which supports, but in this application I have no choice... They also have MoviPLC, which is based on Codesys v2.3 and has the library PLCOpen and allows the control of the Movidrive B, but I can not use this PLC (limitations of the system).
I can add the ESI / EDS file and read / write PDO without problems, but the option to add the Generic Axis Softmotion does not appear. I know the reason thanks to a post from Edwin Schwellinger (thanks!).
1. Is possible to implement an interface to the axis manually and use the PLCOpen fbs?
2. Is there any documentation that explains how to do this?
3. I would have some limitation (Not being able to use Gear, for example)?
