[etherlab-users] EtherCAT newbie - NXIO 100-RE

It's confusing me more and more:
I contacted Hirlscher to get new firmware for NXIO-100RE. I also received a XML description of the slave (Hilscher NXIO 100RE ECS.xml).
When querying XML description via ethercat xml I receive a completely different description (nxio100re.xml).
The info got via ethercat sii_read (ssi.bin) seems to match "Hilscher NXIO 100RE ECS.xml" (I found matching HEX values).

Are there some inconsitencies on my device or do I missunderstand something ?

you can analyze the current slave configuration with the 'ethercat config -v' command and the process data exchange with the 'ethercat domain -v' command.

If you get no further information from this, it is usually helpful to

1) start the master
2) set the debug level to 1 with 'ethercat debug 1'
3) load your application
4) post the logs of the configuration process (from 'Requesting master
