How to connect AC800M plc to IBA PDA
See my answer on this question:
The CI854 card is a Profibus DP Master card.
IbaPDA has two ways to connect to a Profibus master:
- DPM-S. That works like a Profibus slave and sends the data through fiber optic to Iba-PDA
- The internal card L2B (computer PCI card) that also works as Profibus Slave.
I used both communications in many projects with a cycle time of 100ms and from 200 to 1000 signals (float and boolean).
