I'm trying to control a Hand-E gripper from an ABB robot with Ethernet/IP.

As template I used the EDS file available here:

In ABB RobotStudio the configuration of the device looks like this:

But there is an error relative to the Input Size and it doesn't work at all:

I tried other values with the same result.

If I set Input Size to 0, the outputs, and the gripper, are working.

These input and output sizes are a bit of a mystery to me as I would think the "correct" value is 16 (but it doesn't work with 16 for the output).

Does anybody have an idea what I'm doing wrong?

    Here are the working settings:
