GSD file for CM572 DP and Communication with AB controller.
I have a profibus network in which ABB PLC PM581 with CM572-DP module is connected.
In this network 8 No. of ACS850 and 8 No. of Encoders are connected on profibus network.In this network CM572-DP working as a master for all drives.
On the other end AB(Rockwell Automation) PLC 1756-L72 with MVI56PDPMV1(Prosoft Profibus Comm.Module) is installed.
Here i want to send and receive the data from AB PLC to ABB PLC.In this case i want GSD file for CM572-DP and PM581.
My another question is i want to add AB PLC in existing profibus network(which contains CM572-DP,PM581 and 8 no. of ACS850 Drives)in this case from where should i connect AB PLC in profibus means from CM572-DP or the last node.Actually i want to make AB controller as master(because the MVI56PDPMV1 card is profibus master.).
So my question is in which location should i need to add AB 1756-L72.
And i need GSD files for CM572-DP and PM581 for this.
Please guide me.I have attach a pic.
CM572 DP is a PROFIBUS Master module.
If you want to send/receive the DATA from AB PLC to ABB PLC, AB PLC will be a slave.So AB PLC will connect it on CM572 slave line.
If you want to send/receive the DATA from ABB PLC to AB PLC, ABB PLC will be a slave.So ABB PLC will connect it on MVI56PDPMV1 slave line. In ABB PLC ,PROFIBUS DP slave functionality is provided by a AC500 CPU over FBP interface.
in addition to the above answer of vigneshwaran92rce, you need to consider if is more convenient to modify the actual configuration where ABB PLC is the master with CM572 and re-write the complete configuration with AB master and ABB slave.
Are you sure that AB can not give you a solution with AB 1756-L72 slave instead of master ?
IMHO is more simple to insert in the network AB such a slave rather than redoing the whole configuration.
