It works sometimes it doesn't others... eventually it just stops working all together. The error is generated when we are attempting to set the module settings via the API. I've CAR'd this for R&D (327361) hopefully they can find a workaround or get a fix into RIO 4.1.
In the mean time, you might have to find a 9211 or 9213 module.
Hello. Im getting an error when I try to load a bitfile to my ethercat chasis. Im using NIVS 2011 and have downloaded the latest ethercat custom device. Im able to deploy and use the Ethercat chasis. So I am unsure why I am getting this error.
This error happens when you click download FPGA?
Can you check to make sure a few things:
If it works when you deploy, it means that the IP address, master ID, and slave ID are correct. So it must be a problem with the remote communication. Does the "Auto-Detect EtherCAT" button work correctly (on the main Scan Engine & EtherCAT page)? My guess is that you don't have the "I/O Variable Remote Configuration Web Service" installed on your RT target. Open MAX and check the software installed on the target. If this is not on it, you will need to install it in order to use any remote communication (detection and bitfile deployment).
The IP address is correct. The Master id of the etherCAT is 0. Im able to deploy my NIVS project with this ethercat chasis correctly with no errors and use the I/O on it. I get this error when I try to download the FPGA and also when I try to revert back to Scan mode.
It was not installed. I can download a bitfile now. However, when I try to revert to Scan mode, my Slot 8 still says its unavailable.
Nevermind. I just needed to autodetect and it showed back up.
We isolated it to an NI RIO bug that isn't getting fixed until NI Week 2012. Devin just uploaded a new version 3.1 that should be more robust and works around this NI RIO problem so the 9219 should work now.
