LLExec for Tenasys INtime usage instructions

Prerequisites

The INtime configuration must be done as follow (See official INtime documentation for details):

 * Add a running virtual network interface (typically a ven0 interface within INtime must be configured to enable communication between Windows and INtime. Additionally a Windows bridge connection between Windows and INtime interfaces can be done)
 * an ethernet capable network card assigned to INtime environment (optional)
 * INtime Kernel Memory must be raised to a reasonable amount of MB to handle all plugins (Tested with 1024MB, also 256MB should be ok)

Tested on:

  Windows 10 + INtime 6.4.20030.1 Patch Level 20030 + Intel Ethernet Connection I217V (INtime hpe driver ie1g - Vendor:8086 Device:153B)

Installation

  • Extract the LLExec_x.y.z_INtime_bin.zip file into a windows folder of the INtime machine, let's say c:\data\plc

Execution

  • Start the INtime Node on the machine.
  • Launch "LLExecStart_INtime.exe" from windows (Desktop Icon). Without parameters it will load the default "LLExecINtime.conf" configuration file.

Optionally you can also:

 * launch "LLExecStart_INtime.exe /LLEXEC_NO_START" and then launch manually LLExec.rta using INtime RT loader with optional LLExec command line parameters
 * launch "LLExecStart_INtime.exe [name.conf]" passing a custom name of the configuration file to LLExec.

(Without license it will start in DEMO mode for 30 minutes, if you need a licence key please specify if you need Ethercat license too since there is a separate key for ethercat functionality).

LogicLab usage

  • Execute LogicLab (after intallation)
  • Create a new project using the LLExec PLC runtime (INtime) target
  • Configure the GDB connection using the virtual IP address of INtime (this depends on your INtime configuration, typically it is 10.1.1.2, port 5000).
  • Connect to target with the upper left button

Ethercat Master example

  • Prior to launch LLExec, you need to edit the LLExec.conf file and replace the port configuration in the line "<EtherCAT port="ie1g0" autorecovery="no"/>" with the name of the INtime network device used for ethercat. (eg: "ie1g0")
  • Import an .esi file with the command "Tools->Import ESI".
  • Click on resources tab of LogicLab, then select the "Ethercat" node and enable it with the checkbox.
  • Right click on the "main network" ethercat node and select "add" to add your imported ethercat device.
  • A new node for the ethercat device will appear, configure it as you like.
  • Save, compile and download the project to the target.
