Beginning with Operating Systems 1.28 (9030/9040) and 2.28 (9630/9640) with the compatible 1.03.08 EPL version, ACR controllers expand support of EPL drive communication and configuration via SDO transfers.
An EPL drive stores current process and device data in the Object Dictionary (OD), including communication parameters, device identification, and specific functionalities of a device. The Object Dictionary is based on CANopen and follows the same format. The OD contains both standardized objects common to all devices and manufacturer specific objects. Each object within the dictionary is addressed using a 16-bit index and an 8-bit sub-index.
ACR ETHERNET Powerlink controllers utilize both Service Data Object (SDO) transfer and Process Data Object (PDO) transfer as methods of exchanging data with other devices. The ACR controller reads and writes data to and from drives using SDO (during network start and set-up) and PDO (periodically during normal operation) without direct interaction by the user or user programs. The ACR9000 manipulates these objects as required automatically, as the underlying method of normal network operation.
