As said above you have to add gsd file in siemens plc. I addition to that you have to create profibus network configuration in thee siemens plc. Once you have created the network configuration, there will be option on the right hand side to add 3rd party IO modules. Just click and drag that icon to your network.
Enter the profibus parameters for read and write word. Upon successful communication you will be able to take the modules online in siemens plc.
There are no special settings for the ABB modules inorder to connect to Siemens plc.
