We recently acquired an Anybus X-Gateway (Ethercat to Modbus TCP https://www.anybus.com/products/gateway-index/anybus-xgateway/detail/anybus-x-gateway-ethercat-slave---modbus-tcp-server). I am trying to interface the Anybus with a Kuka robot that we have on the Ethercat side. I downloaded the ESI file(s) for Ethercat from the webpage for this device and uploaded it to our tool that interfaces with our robot (Kuka WorkVisual 5.0), but am getting errors.
Do you have any guidance on specifically how to interface the Anybus with Kuka (specifically the Beckhoff EK1100 Ethercat Coupler)?
In terms of wiring, I have powered the Anybus and have wired an Ethernet cable from the output of the EK1100 to the input port of the Anybus on the Ethercat side. I have not modified the ESI file retrieved from your product page.
