One question I have when I imported the IndraDrive xml description to TwinCAT device, I found there are two type configuring files with different firmware(one is Firmware 0xVRS, the other is Firmware 1xVRS) in the peripheral 'NexeedEcRxIdMPC'. my driver's firmware is MPC type(see attachment). I am not sure which one is the corresponding xml file, and how can I idetify the right xml according to firmware of drvier? is there a linking principle with Object? or it is just a template, can be customized by programmer to what he want

"0xVRS" is only for very old projects. It is for example for MPC-03.
"1xVRS" is for firmware versions >=10 (e.g. MPC-17 and also MPC-20).
Here you can find a list of firmware versions from Rexroth:
When ordering a drive the firmware version is usually called like this:
I don't know why Rexroth chose a different name for ordering and showing it in IndraWorks 🤔
"MPC-17V28" means firmware version 17, release 28. When ordering an IndraDrive, the firmware version is relevant, but not the release. Therefore it is called "MPC-17VRS" when ordering it.
