Hardware Catalog Manager does not import PDO mapping for 'Advantys analog IO modules

Goals and Symptoms

Hardware Catalog Manager does not import PDO mapping for 'Advantys analog IO modules

Facts and Changes

All versions of Unity

Causes and Fixes


If you import an Advantys exported EDS file into a Unity 'M340' application using the 'Add Device'
feature, the information for the analog I/O modules do not get imported.





The reason that some of the IO modules may not get imported is because the number of IO modules
that can be imported by the software is limited per the CAN open specification. To resolve the issue,
the missing PDO's and TDO's for the IO devices must be added into the Advantys configuration
manually before exporting to a '.eds' file.
