  Fieldbus connection
Posted by: andy.evans - March-23rd-2022, 06:33 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (1)

I am having trouble with xChannelIOWrite. It always returns CIFX_DEV_NO_COM_FLAG

I understand this is to do with the NCF_COMMUNICATING flag.

I have a successful
 connection from Molex - EtherNet/IP tool to the device. This is indicated by three solid green LEDs on the netHat.

I have reset the channel, enabled (CIFX_BUS_STATE_ON) the bus.

Any suggestions?

Is there a way to reset password of the control panel? Even open the scard and mount into a linux distribution.

Dear Sir,

Could I ask you the latest (current) distribution version of Yocto linux running on netPI?

Thank you very much for your information.

  NIOT-E-TPI51-EN-RE Firmware not functional
Posted by: COswald - February-4th-2022, 09:57 AM - Forum: Hardware - Replies (3)

Hello together,

yesterday i got a NIOT-E-TPI51-EN-RE with firmware locked and unfunctional.

The only way go get it breathing again was to make a USB - Recovery.

I thought the problem with file system corruption was fixed with firmware, isn't it?

Is the latest Firmware?

Kind regards,

  Trouble resetting NetPI
Posted by: a.w.d.m. - February-1st-2022, 11:02 AM - Forum: Software - Replies (7)

I'm currently trying to reset a NetPI (NIOT-E-NPI3-EN) via a USB Stick. When I uploaded a Docker image from a tar-file (size 1GB), the NetPI stopped responding to inputs and the web interface was no longer available. I then attempted to restart it by unplugging it and then plugging it in again, but the ACR light stayed off, only the POW light was on.

I have downloaded the Software image and copied the correct files to a USB 3.0-stick according to the instructions. All files and folders are in the root folder of the stick, the stick has format FAT32 and is named "RECOVERY". Unfortunately, the ACT light stays dark when I put in the stick and repower the NetPI. The stick is newly bought. The connected monitor doesn't receive any signal.

  Initial Setup of Control Panel with admin + admin thorws error
Posted by: Michi - January-27th-2022, 12:14 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (4)


I just connected the Pi to the network and gave it an ip-address and now I want to setup the rest like it is shown in the Youtube-Video "[color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)]netPI - Getting Started with the netPI"[/color]. Unfortunately, it always prints the error "Invalid username or password", when I use the default username and password shown in the video. 
What can I do about it?

Best regards

Hallo everyone,
I'm newer and I hope that this is a correct session, but I'd like to know why kb.hilsher.com is down.

Thanks a lot


  cannot execute file: Exec format error - NETPI

  1. We created an app to run on NETPI, 
  2. compiled in a development environment: ubuntu x64 - gcc compiler 
  3. We used the Image : hilschernetpi/netpi-raspbian 
  4. When trying to run the application, the following error occurs:

  Functional Earth
Posted by: tad - January-11th-2022, 01:50 AM - Forum: Hardware - Replies (3)

Dear Sir,

There is a Functional Earth (FE) pin in the power connector of netPI.

1) If netPI is used for AGV or so, what kind of adverse effects can be expected when FE is not connected?
2) What function does the FE work for?

The FE pin cannot be grounded to the ground, so I suppose it can be connected to the AGV chassis instead.
Is that correct?

Thank you very much for your advice.
Best regards,
