0) Indeed we are off-topic. It would be polite to switch to personal 
email when talking about specific devices unless the problem has to do 
with IgH. No one here wants to hear about configuring some obscure motor 
drive.

1) Yes, it uses SoE for everything except process data circulation. The 
PDOs are fixed.

2) I don't know if has EoE. That would be interesting. FoE would be even 
more interesting (for mass parameter upload and download.)

3) Yes, I have problems. My wife is angry because the driveway is coated 
with ice because I obsessed over my AX5203 yesterday instead of 
shoveling snow. The problem du jour is  "F4A5 "Under Voltage" from 
"CycValuesLine1 & 2" which I suspect refers to the line frequency. I 
think I'm pretty close to success. I'm going to pester Beckhoff today. 
It's tricky bothering them while using IgH. ;-)

If this is a matter of interest, I'll write to you privately when I succeed.
