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.
However, 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.
There are two options to do so:
- 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 so, 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 perform the firmware update with the update function.
