Modifying Protocol within Panel Builder 600
Hello, I have created a project for an ABB Control Panel CP635 and ABB AC500 PLC before I have hardware to test it on.
The communications between the Control Panel and PLC doesn't work now tested on hardware. I have got it working now by creating a test project and changing the protocol settings within the Control panel Builder software.
I now want to modify my Control Panel project's Protocol but cant see a way of doing this without adding a new one and them my 1000+ tags are not linked to the new protocol. Is there a way of modifying the Protocol settings or another solution?
It depend on your protocol setting, example if you previously have the ABB Modbus RTU protocol set and with 1000 tags in it. You are able to change the Protocol from ABB Modbus RTU to Modbus RTU/Modbus TCP/ ABB Modbus TCP and the tags will stays.
Unfortunately, if you switch the Protocol from Modbus to Codesys, the tags will not be correct as the CoDeSys protocol require you to have the .sym file to be import.
(You can refer to the video on how to setup CoDeSys protocol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5D-ydMqVNk)
If you want your project to switch between 2 protocol base on user selection, then you can create 2 protocol and use the 'Indexed Tag Set' function.
