Support for Beckhoff EPP modules

Hello,
Under supported devices we can read that the Beckhoff Ethercat Box Series is supported. I don’t know if there’s any technical difference, but does this include modules from the EPP-series aswell. The EPP-series utilizes Ethercat P, so the power supply voltage is integrated into the Ethercat cable. One example of a module that we are considering to use together with RMP is for example EPP1008.

Hello Jesper,

After revising the EPP1008 documentation it appears like the EPP series should be able to work with our motion controller just fine. Though, no EPP series nodes have been integrated in our motion controller yet. I will talk with the team to see if we can integrate the EPP series before our next release.

Best!
