Highlights in SDK 4.3, MultiTool version 7.1


New feature for 6000 series devices. It's now possible to use the CAN bus in the 6000 series devices instead of a CAN adapter in PC.

When a network connection is available from the PC to a 6000 series device, CANmoon, CODESYS 2.3 and CODESYS 3.5 are able to use the CAN bus of the 6000 series device just like a CAN adapter connected to the PC.

RemoteCAN can be used
 - Locally with ethernet or wifi
 - Remotely with GatE
 - Remotely with a VPN service

For more information, see Epec Programming and Libraries Manual..


Device description

Default CODESYS profile in MultiTool

When adding a new device to MultiTool, or changing the device version, the CODESYS profile is now selected automatically as defined in the device description file.

GlobE and Edge in separate task

GlobE and Edge are now run in separate tasks in the CODESYS application. This change stabilizes the main application cycle time, since it does not have to run cloud operations anymore.
