openPOWERLINKopenPOWERLINK is an Open Source Industrial Ethernet stack implementing the POWERLINK protocol.
The following is needed in order to use openPOWERLINK with FORTE:
The openPOWERLINK V1.8.0 stack from sourceforge should be compiled using at least the following options in CMake:
- CFG_X86_WINDOWS_DLL (only available on Windows)
If compiled on Windows the resulting DLL and LIB must be copied to the main openPOWERLINK-V1.8.0 folder.
TinyXML can also be downloaded from sourceforge. FORTE CMake has to be configured as follows:
- check FORTE_MODULE_POWERLINK
- set FORTE_MODULE_POWERLINK_LIB_DIR to [OPENPOWERLINK-V1.08.0_HOME]
- set FORTE_MODULE_POWERLINK_TINYXML_DIR to the directory where you unpacked TinyXML
For communication through opwenPOWERLINK, instantiate and configure the function blocks provided within the powerlink folder. The powerlink folder is part of 4diac's type library.
