Phase Out Information

PNS V3 & EIS V2 phase out


Due to development consolidation and efficiency improvements, we will phase out PROFINET IO-Device generation V3 and EthernetIP Adapter generation V2 by end of 2021.
Means by this date no features will be added anymore and there will be no support of latest test bundles for certification.

Replacement will be PROFINET IO-Device generation V4 and EthernetIP Adapter generation V3, which are available in this package.
We strongly recommend always using the latest firmware versions, to have full feature support and to stay compliant with latest test bundles for certification.

Please make sure to test the new firmware generations in your application, to allow a smooth transition.

 

For preloaded communication modules comX & netJACK the new versions can be ordered as following variants:

/PNS V4 - PROFINET IO-Device generation V4

/EIS V3 - EthernetIP Adapter generation V3

For consistency the old versions still can be purchased via the existing variants:

/PNS V3 - PROFINET IO-Device generation V3

/EIS  - EthernetIP Adapter generation V2

First Steps

  1. Install the above mentioned software components.

  2. Mount the Hilscher product into the system, e.g. PC or evaluation board.

  3. Please ensure power supply, host interface access and optional USB diagnostic access

  4. Download a firmware from the Product Download package into the Hilscher product using SYCON.net or the auxiliary tool netHOST. comX and netJACK products always come preloaded and a firmware download is only necessary for an update of the firmware.

  5. Set up a network configuration via SYCON.net

  6. Download the configuration into the product and start the communication.

  7. Optional: Check data exchange with “cifXTest” utility, which is installed in the Windows Control Panel and …\Program Files\cifX Device Driver with the cifX Device Driver (NXDRV-WIN). Alternatively you can use the auxiliary tool netHOST.   

  8. Connect the application.

All steps are visualized in the below mentioned Application Notes as step-by-step videos.

Firmware

For full support with the Hilscher tool chain, the minimum firmware listed on this Product Download package has to be used. For the latest version, please visit the Hilscher Knowledge Base regularly.

Legend

1) If supported, the integrated WebServer is activated as default. Can be deactivated via Firmware TAG-List.

2) Instead of NDIS EtherCAT supports EoE

3) The NDIS functionality is deactivated as default, but can be activated via Firmware TAG-List.
   Real-Time Ethernet will be offered to the host in Channel 0, NDIS and TCP socket in channel 1 and in IoT communication in channel 2.
   Channel 1 (NDIS and TCP socket interface) and Channel 2 (IOT communication) can only be accessed in SPM host interface mode. In DPM host interface mode only Channel 0 (RTE) can physically be adressed

4) LWIP TCP stack is used, which has a different API (socket API) than the Hilscher  TCP stack.

5) Hilscher  TCP stack is used, which has a different API (HIL TCP API) than LWIP TCP stack.

6) NDIS and TCP socket interface can only be accessed in SPM host interface mode, because only Channel 0 can be physically adressed in DPM mode.

7) OPC UA Server and MQTT Client can only be accessed in SPM host interface mode, because only Channel 0 can be physically adressed in DPM mode.
