Creating a Hot Connect group

The EtherCAT system documentation contains a complete description of the Hot Connect function. It also contains general instructions for creating a Hot Connect group.

However, please use the following special instructions for the EPP1111-0000:

  1. Arrange the EtherCAT devices so that the EPP1111-0000 is the first EtherCAT device in the planned Hot Connect group.
  2. Right-click on the EPP1111 IO module.
  3. Click on "Add to HotConnect group" in the context menu.
  4. Select the EtherCAT devices for the Hot Connect group:
    With the shift key held down, click on the desired EtherCAT devices in the "Select Connected Slaves" box to mark them.
  5. Make sure that the checkboxes are set correctly:
    - "Identification Value" checkbox is checked
    - "EtherCAT Addr. of previous Slave" is unchecked
  6. Set the desired ID under "Identification Value". (0 .. 999)
