RTDE Inputs with Ethernet/IP activated problem

Hi,

RTDE SETUP_INPUTS response is IN_USE for inputs when the Ethernet/IP is activated, even when no scanner are connected.

Tested with the last Virtual Machine 3.8.0.61336

Strange behaviours ?

Ethernet/IP and Profinet will reserve the following RTDE input blocks when activated (regardless of connection state).

  • All inputs, including GP bool 0-63, GP int 0-2, GP double 0-23.

Thus these signals will not be available for other clients, when Profinet or Ethernet/IP is activated.
