EDS files in TwinCAT 3

Hello,

I have an EDS file from another device vendor for communication via EthernetIP. Where in the TwinCAT 3 project tree do I drop in this EDS file?? Thank you.

I do not have Twincat 3 but Twincat 2. Twincat2 uses:

C:\Twincat\IO\

There you'll find different folders according to your communicationsystem.

For TwinCAT 3 I believe the path is:
C:\TwinCAT\3.1\Config\Io\

...and you have to reboot TwinCAT to rescan the folders.
