Profibus DP-PA Configuration Changes


Thread Starter

Hi everyone,

Using a Profibus DP-PA network with a Siemens S7 PLC, would it be necessary to stop the PLC to download a hardware change every time a new instrument is added to the existing network?

If not, would there be any other negative implications? If so, can the network installation be designed to bypass these ill effects?

Kind Regards,
