SERCOS Protocol

Are there any future plans to support servo drives using the SERCOS protocol over EtherCAT?

We have a strong desire to use the beckhoff AX5000 series of servo drive in conjunction with a delta tau controller.

What is the current limitation for using these drives is it a delta tau issue or the Acontis software stack that does not support the SERCOS protocol?

I have experimented with the combination and found that the SOE parameters are accessible in the IDE and EC engineer. However on attempting to move the drive through it's state machine errors are encountered at the pre-op to safe-op which is where the majority on the SOE initialisation tasks occur.
There are no future plans to support the SERCOS protocol over EtherCAT (not supported by Acontis).
