Hi Clemens,

If you don´t get any error messages when you start your application the master is running. If not check the debug output and make sure the configuration looks the same like "ethercat pods" says. If you get no error you can check in the output of "ethercat slaves" if your NXIO slave is in operational state. If so you can receive and send data in the cyclic task by using the EC_Read and EC_Write macros that the master offers, and do whatever you want with the data. See in the html output of the doxygen documentation how to use the read an write macros.


If you want to communicate
