Hardware

For our products ibaBM-eCAT, ibaPADU-S-IT-2x16 and ibaPADU-S-CM we have released new firmware Software.

What’s new in these versions?

 

ibaBM-eCAT v02.05.003

Improvement:

When using ibaBM-eCAT as an EtherCAT slave exclusively on an EtherCAT master interface or as the last device in an EtherCAT segment, it must be configured that ibaBM-eCAT is a single device or the last device. For this, a new parameter is introduced. This parameter is necessary since firmware version 02.05.001, because the EtherCAT updating time was excessively high in this use case. This new firmware version requires ibaPDA-V7 v7.1.0.

A firmware update is only necessary if you want to use the ibaBM-eCAT as a single device or last device on the EtherCAT bus.

 

ibaPADU-S-CM v02.14.015

Improvements:

The functionality of the ‘uninterrupted FO data stream at reboot’ was optimized.Now it works without any interruption in ibaPDA when the option ‘set signals to zero when a link is broken’ is disabled in the general settings of the FO board. This behaviour is also present with StaticFO mode.New property ‘Debounce_Delay_Time_32xDI_16xDIO’ was added to the StaticFO functionality. Now it is possible to set the debounce filter type ‘delay both edges’ for the ibaMS32xDI-24V and the ibaMS16xDIO-24V at StaticFO functionality.

A firmware update is only necessary if you want to use one of these improvements.

 

ibaPADU-S-IT-2x16 v02.14.015

Improvement:

The functionality of the ‘uninterrupted FO data stream at reboot’ was optimized. Now it works without any interruption in ibaPDA when the option ‘set signals to zero when a link is broken’ is disabled in the general settings of the FO board.

Bugfix: 

The general behaviour of the output channels of the ibaMS4xUCO was also changed for the use with ibaLogic. Now all outputs of the ibaMS4xUCO will be disabled when ibaLogic is stopped.

A firmware update is only necessary if you want to use this new improvement or you are using ibaLogic together with ibaMS4xUCO and you want this new behaviour.
