How to make work a module FB500 on siemens?
Hi, I´m working with the comunication of a VDF ACS580 with a adaptator module Profibus DP FPBA-01 to a siemens CPU 314C-2 PN/DP and i need to use this block in the image below and i need to know how to make it work, i am using simatic manager 5.5 sp4, and using PLCSim to make a simulation. I read the "Quick start-up guide ABB Drives function blocks for Siemens PLC´s" i can´t understand at all how to make it works, and i search in the ABB page https://new.abb.com/drives/es/conecti... for more information but still can´t make it work. I intall the GSD and the library.

Really, this is a Siemens issue, so I'm not sure you will get much help here. Some suggestions ...
- Do not use the "EN" terminal as a drive enable. Disabling this terminal stops processing of the block entirely. If Q0.3 is false the block will not function at all.
- This block wont simulate the communications. The Block will run in your PLC simulator but you wont be able to test any comms functions.
All ABB Drives work with a "Control Word" and "Speed Reference" to the Drive and a "Status Word" from the Drive. You need set a speed reference and the correct bits in the control word to the drive, and configure the drive to use the profibus commands.
Manuals for the FBPA-01 and Drives are in the ABB Library here ... https://share.library.abb.com/api/v4?cid=9AAC175124&q=FPBA-01
