Using SYCON-PB to Connect to YOKOGAWA
Connecting Yokogawa and Siemens via Profibus using SYCON-PB

Hello all.

I want to connect Yokogawa and Siemens via Profibus DP protocol.
In the instructions of Yokogawa it is written that you need to use the program SYCON-PB/YOKO (Product of Hilscher Co.). On the site
hilscher.com/products/product-groups/software/configurator/
this program is missing. The google search results did not give...

Please tell me how to solve the problem.

Hello

You need to have a CD media with a license key for this s/w, usually supplied along with the DCS by Yokogawa subject to the Profibus S/w license. As a prerequisite this s/w to be installed in the DCS EWS, and then the mapping table of profibus with unique iD of the Profibus devices to be imported under the ALP111/ACP71 sub folders. Once the above steps are done then the relevant Communication parameters to be set under the Sycon-Hilscher menu and then down load to the ALP111/ACP71 modules.Refer to the ALP111/ACP71 Instruction manuals for the specific directories as well as the Hilscher manual for detailed info.

good luck.
