  netPI access for remote PLC confign
Posted by: MGharat - October-15th-2019, 07:44 AM - Forum: Software - Replies (3)

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?


  Dual RS485 Ports

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Since runtime V3.5.15.x the embedded gateway responsible for communication with the Development System is no longer active.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 :-)

  netPI Node-Red fieldbus node Error
Posted by: PersEE - September-18th-2019, 03:39 PM - Forum: Software - Replies (5)


We have got a netPI RTE 3 with the system version 1.1.5.

We used the image hilschernetpi/netpi-nodered-fieldbus.

By following the tutorial of https://youtu.be/2WBt8XAurVU, we have established a PROFINET connection with a Siemens S7-1200.

However, every time we start the node, an error will occur after several minutes of normal operation and the error LEDs on the machine will be on.

The connection will be re-established when we redeploy the node-red flow but after a few minutes the error will occur again.
Error message:

add_desc"xChannelIOWrite return error (0x800c0012) [Device not running (running flag failed)]"

Screenshots can be found in the attachments

Could you please help us with this problem? Thanks.

  One Node-RED container replaces many individual
Posted by: Armin@netPI - September-16th-2019, 07:27 PM - Forum: News - No Replies

Dear netPI Community,

in June 2019 we started a Node-RED container project that is embedding all Node-RED nodes (invididually containerized before) we ever have developed and published for netPI.

From today we abandon all those individual containers and announce the immediate availability of the single Node-RED container for a better user-friendliness. Consider to load the correct tag depending on your netPI model in use.

The following container projects are no more published and maintained on Docker Hub while their source code remains on GitHub:


Thank you
