How do I change RMP EtherCAT controller sample from 1KHz to 4KHz?

For first time:

  1. Generate an ENI file when your controller is set to 4kHz. (One Time per network.)

  2. Open RapidSetup

  3. Click on Motion Controller tab

    1. Change Sample Rate from 1000 to 4000

    2. Discover Network

    3. Generate ENI File

    4. Network Start

For future runs:

  1. Open RapidSetup

    1. Change Sample Rate from 1000 to 4000

    2. Network Start

In code using RapidCode:

  1. MotionController.CreateFromSoftware()

    1. controller.SampleRateSet(4000)

    2. controller.NetworkStart()
