Change from CANopen- to TMCL-Firmware
When you have a module with CANopen firmware, the red LED flashes when CAN is not connected. With CANopen firmware it is not possible to control the motor using the TMCL-IDE or TMCL commands.
But you can turn the CANopen module into a TMCL module using a firmware update. Get the TMCL firmware file from the product page of the module on our website and then use the firmware update function of the TMCL-IDE to perform the firmware update.
To do that there is two options:
- If the module offers USB, just connect the module via USB, do not connect the power supply (otherwise USB would not work with CANopen firmware).
- When updating the firmware via CAN you first have to put the module into bootloader-mode. To do that, click on the connected CAN-adapter in the TMCL-IDE and click on "Send boot command" in the CANopen-tab. After restarting the IDE you are able to to the firmware update with the update-function.
