  Cannot start container
Posted by: Magnus - Yesterday, 08:17 AM - Forum: Software - Replies (7)


I have tried many times to follow all instructions on how to setup a netPi RTE 3 to work as
a Codesys RTE master for etherCat, ie a PLC.

I have come so far that I am online to the device from a google chrome browser.
No it did not work with address of the network interface. I had to find the taken
DHCP ip-adress and browse to that one.
I have activated the docker service.
I have added a container and follows all instructions how to fill out the parameters,
But every time it fails when I try to start the container.

It says

No such Image: hilschernetpi/netpi-codesys-basis

What to do??

netPI RTE 3 is new item. Portainer is version 1.12.4

  Central CODESYS PLC management from all over the world
Posted by: Armin@netPI - October-15th-2019, 05:04 PM - Forum: News - No Replies

CODESYS V3.5.8.0 or higher features an Internet Automation Server enabling remote management of any CODESYS SoftPLC from all over the world.
The server can be used additionally with any project that has been created already.

Here are the steps to use the Automation Server with netPI. (CODESYS Control and CODESYS Edge Gateway needs to be running on netPI already)

1. Apply for your personal Internet Automation Server address (Hostname) in the CODESYS Store first. The store returns you a Server URL after it was sucessfully created. Remind it for later use.

2. Create the server administrator user account using a link to a setup page received through an email

3. Open your CODESYS Development System and install the additional package Automation Server Connector. Restart CDS.

4. Open your existing project to want to upload to the server. Use the new top menu function Automation Server / Connect Project to Server ... . Enter the Server URL received in step 1, click ok and your project will be uploaded to the server. Enter the administrator credentials when asked.

5. Make netPI known on the Automation Server as well. Use Automation Server / Connect Edge Gateway ... . Enter the Server URL received in step 1, the gateway address (or IP address and port) of your netPI and click ok.

6. Visit the Server URL and login with the admin credentials. Under PLCs / List View your netPI Edge gateway / CODESYS runtime will be offered for a Detail view. Under Applications / CODESYS Projects your uploaded CODESYS project (offline set) will be offered. The tap Applications / Applications will show you the currently running projects and their status.

7. Using the tap Applications / Applications / Details / Update all allows you to install specific uploaded CODESYS projects to your netPI

  netPI access for remote PLC confign

Dear Armin,

One of our customer wants to configure the PLC from a remote location.
Can netPI  be used along with 2 containers - Codesys + open VPN connection?

Are you able to produce a bespoke version of the RS485 expansion module which provides 2 x RS485 communications ports?

  [INFO] CODESYS V3.5.15.0 compatibility confirmed
Posted by: Armin@netPI - September-23rd-2019, 12:07 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (5)

Today I checked the compatibility of the netPI Codesys basis container https://hub.docker.com/r/hilschernetpi/n...sys-basis/ with the latest runtime version of "Codesys for Raspberry Pi MC/SL" in the version V3.5.15.0 along with the Windows Development System CODESYS V3.5 SP15 Patch 1.

I can confirm that this container is still compatible with these versions and can be still used.

Changes since runtime V3.5.15.x:

Since runtime V3.5.15.x the embedded gateway responsible for communication with the Development System is no longer active. This is stated in a CODESYS forum thread at https://forum.codesys.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9974.So trying to setup a communication to the container using the netPI IP address as gateway will fail.

Instead you have to use the gateway that is coming with the Windows Development System running on localhost at port 1217. A click on "Scan network ..."  will identify the netPI and the container then successfully:


Here is picture of my successful project (with PROFINET master):


  Codesys RTE profinet
Posted by: echteler - September-20th-2019, 09:02 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (2)

Hi there, 
Im trying to get a profinet Balluff IO-Link Master connected to the rte port of my netpi RTE.

I managed to get codesys running, and Setup in the codesys dev environment.
I got the gateway up and running, btw. It did not work with the latest codesys runtime. I had to move back to version ...14... 
but now, when I try to choose a network adapter, it does not show the RTE ports, where the master is attached to. 

Can someone hook me up with a small tutorial, how to do this? 

Best regards
Philipp from Balluff :-)
