XML Configuration Tool
The RMP Motion Controller is software-based and does not have flash memory, nor are its configurations stored in a file.
XML Configurations give your application the most flexibility for configuring the RMP as needed at runtime. This is better than using hard-coded values in your RapidCode application. Is also useful when upgrading to a new RMP version.
Using the rsiconfig.exe utility will help guarantee that your RMP is correctly configured and ready to run before your RapidCode application starts. It also can help you generate XML configurations for your current settings.
After you have your network started and all Axis settings configured via RapidSetup, use ‘rsiconfig.exe -generate’ to generate XML files:
This creates the file ‘settings.xml’ which is used to apply configurations to a freshly-started RMP in the future. It also creates the two Axis XML files (Axis 0.xml and Axis 1.xml).
To initialize a system and restore from XML files, use ‘rsiconfig settings.xml ’:
Here you can see that the expected node types and Axis settings were configured. rsiconfig.exe will return non-zero if there are unexpected nodes or an error restoring configurations.
