EtherCAT to Kollmorgen

Anyone have luck with labview 2019, etherCAT, and a Kollmorgen? I followed NI doc on configuring a third party ethercat and I can’t detect the hardware. On a second note... I find it interesting that They killed NI softmotion.

I am attempting the same. So far, no luck with EtherCat but willing to try following links:

 

Connect to AKD drive without Softmotion: https://knowledge.ni.com/KnowledgeArticleDetails?id=kA00Z000000kJn9SAE&l=en-US

 

I will not be able to try these until early next week. But would update my findings here.

I don't think they killed Softmotion, they just didn't release a version for LabVIEW 2019. 

I can see that there is a new version for LabVIEW 2020 released on 14-09-2020.

But I believe you would have to buy it if you are creating an application which is supposed to be deliver to client or customers.


Any luck connecting with EtherCat? I haven't had a chance yet to look into it.
