Using Powerlink firmware with netHAT and config nxd
I did a comparison: I compared all netHAT provided firmwares published on the DVD image here https://www.netiot.com/fileadmin/big_dat..._0_0_1.zip with all the provided firmwares for netSHIELD here here https://kb.hilscher.com/display/NETX/Dow...tXFirmware.

The only difference I see is that the netSHIELD provided firmwares are time limited to one hour runtime before they stop. This is not the case for the full-featured firmwares coming with netHAT.

But basically I can confirm that both type of firmwares are interchangeable on a netX52 chip. This means the POWERLINK firmware made for netSHIELD will run instantly on a netHAT. This new information is against my first opinion I wrote in my previous post.

What I have seen as next is that netSHIELD web lading page/knowledge base just offers a user to get a netX52 configured along with an application in socalled "online" mode. There are several packet needed to be sent to the chip to get it operative. This is in contrast to the netHAT operating model which uses a database that is stored within the netX52 flash memory. This data base instantly configures netHAT when powered by an internal chip procedure. This does not need an application to configure the chip each time after boot from a user application.

Today I neither have an unlimited POWERLINK firmware for netHAT nor I have a database nxd file. We stopped all developments for netHAT 4 years ago. netHAT is just a teaser product for students and in no way we have the aim to make money with netHAT. But this in turn means we don't want to invest any work into this product any more while in the background the team is working on the new product "netHAT 90" which comes with a netX90 on board.
