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.
