Profibus comunication with simovert master drives


Thread Starter

eric ababio

i have a masterdrive that i need to communicate to through profibus to compact logix using prosoft profibus scanner.

How can i set the profibus address on the master drive communication module? Do i need a special software or can do it through the user interface panel.
There are 2 Profibus scanners from Prosoft, the PS69-DPM uses a software package called Prosoft.fdt and the MVI69-PDPMV1 uses a software package called Prosoft Configuration Builder. Each of these software packages will allow you to configure the node ID of the scanner, as well as import the GSD file for the slave device and setup the number of I/O words to exchange.
