Hi Mark,

What Torsten says is true for Model 2 and Model 3 motor drivers.  However the SmartMotorSrc driver is an old Model 1 driver, so the driver is not derived from asynPortDriver and it only has the single asyn port to the underlying drvAsynIPPort.  

The OUT field syntax for Model 1 drivers is:

        field(OUT,"#C$(C) S$(S) @")

where $(C) is the card number, and $(S) is the signal number.  So for the first axis on the first controller it would be

     field(OUT,  "#C0 S0 @")

Mark

Hej Mark,

you need 2 asyn ports, one for the motorRecord to talk to your "Animatics SmartMotor" asynMotorDriver.

The second one to let the "Animatics SmartMotor" asynMotorDriver talk to the real hardware.
We call them "MCU1" and "MC_CPU1", better suggestions are welcome.


A simplified setup is here:

## The db file:
record(motor,"$(PREFIX)$(MOTOR_NAME)")
{
	field(DESC,"$(DESC)")
	field(DTYP,"asynMotor")
	field(OUT,"@asyn($(MOTOR_PORT),$(AXIS_NO))")
}

##st.cmd
epicsEnvSet("ASYN_PORT",     "MC_CPU1")
epicsEnvSet("MOTOR_NAME",    "IOC:m1")
epicsEnvSet("MOTOR_PORT",    "MCU1")
epicsEnvSet("AXIS_NO",       "1")


drvAsynIPPortConfigure("$(ASYN_PORT)","$(IPADDR):$(IPPORT)",0,0,0)
EthercatMCCreateController("$(MOTOR_PORT)", "$(ASYN_PORT)", "$(NUMAXES)", "200", "1000")

EthercatMCCreateAxis("$(MOTOR_PORT)", "$(AXIS_NO)",)

I hope that hopes a little bit.
/Torsten
