Firmware used in production

The actual COSinus FW 1.26.xx or higher for the main CPU and the extension CPU is available from the COSinus firmware page.

Firmware

Update description of the firmware on PCD3.M6860 and PCD3.M6880

Technical Info Update description of the firmware on PCD3.M6860 and PCD3.M6880

EN01 Archive .pdf 0.62 MB Download

Remark about the firmware update on PCD3.M6860 or PCD3.M6880 CPU’s can be found on the FAQ 101988

The internal power consumption of systems with PCD3 components can be calculated with PG5 Device Configurator
EPLAN product macros, DWG and DXF files can be found here (the dimensions of the PCD3.Mxx60 are identical to the PCD3.Mxx40)
For printing on the Labeling-Strips for PCD3-Modules please use the Device Configurator from PG5 2.1.

Good to know

The configuration of the PCD3.M6880 is possible since PG5 2.1.400.

No more possible to set the PCD3.M6860 in to the firmware download mode with the help of the run/stop switch (since booter version 1.24.11)
See FAQ 101948

The configuration of the PCD3.M6860 is possible since PG5 2.1.100.

There is a program example for the PCD3.M6860 available in the Getting Started section.

 

Application programs are stored in the onboard flash. For this reason, the CPU of the PCD3.M6860 differs in its behaviour regarding program download, backup and restore requirements from existing PCD3 CPUs.  

The CPU can remain in run during the download process, but always restarts before deploying the new program (download changed blocks in run is not yet possible).

 

On the PCD3.M6860, both Ethernet ports are active at the same time (and also active for the Ether S-Bus communication, if activated on the device configurator) regardless of the channel number.
The same behavior does also apply for the S-Bus communication F-Boxes, means that the channel defined in the master/slave F-Box has no effect in the relation to the two Ethernet ports.
 

USB connector on extension (under blue cover) is not used.

Can only be used for FW download if there is no FW (Booter only). FW download normally goes via USB 1 and Ethernet (1 or 2).

 

Performance

There are 2 Ethernet interfaces but only one CPU which processes the Ethernet communication -> Ethernet communication performance is not increased

Communication via Ethernet 2 uses (about 2x) more CPU power than communication  via Ethernet 1

Communication via Ethernet 2 is slower (about 2x) than via Ethernet 1

If there is heavy communication on both Ethernet interfaces the user program execution is slowed down correspondingly
