Profibus Communicatoion Between AC800M with (Compact Control Builder v4.1) and CI854, and FPBA-01
We want to establish a Master-Slave communication with Profibus between an AC800M (Compact Control Builder v4.1) with CI854 Profibus-Master and FPBA-01.
The fact is that there are no manuals or example projects for Compact Control Builder.
So, the first question is whether this is possible.
If yes, can someone provide us a manual or at least a ready-made project to use as an example?
Our main problem may be that we do not have the Hardware library for the FPBA-01.
For Profibus communication between VFD drive FPBA-01 module to CI854, get the GSD file of FPBA-01 module and create the hardware library using the profibus register address details and connect the same to hardware of AC800M controller define the variables with respective to register address details.
For ver. 4.1 (yes, still alive) try to find the document 3BDS009030R4001:
"To configure new types of PROFIBUS slaves first the new types have to be added to the project. Therefore a conversion of the GSD file to the hardware definition file (HWD file) for the specific slaves has to be done.
You can do the conversion with the GSD Import Tool that is provided by the system. For information how to do the conversion please refer to the online help of the GSD Import Tool. After doing the conversion you have to insert the generated hardware definition file to your project. Select File and then Insert Hardware Definitions in the menu of Control Builder M to do the insertion.
The new slave type is now available in the system. While adding a new slave you will find the new type via the context menu New Unit and GSD Import . This pops up a list with all inserted slave types."
