Convert gsd to hwd in Compact Control Builder
Is it possible to use the same hwd files in a Compact Control Builder project as in 800xA?
I need to convert a gsd-file for DataLogic QLM600. Is there an existing hwd file for this och can I send it somewhere to get it converted and tested? I read somewhere that converting of gsd files is a service provided by ABB. Is that right?
In this case I have no possibility to test the communication before startup of the system and therefor need to know that the conversion is done correctly.
Another question: Is it possible for an AC800M to communicate directly with a webservice?
You can try the following procedure :
Right click Project / Libraries / Hardware
Name (Ex. DataLogic_QLM600)
Location default for new library :
C:\ABB Industrial IT Data\Engineer IT Data\Compact Control Builder AC 800M\Projects\Libraries\Hardware\
Right click Project / Libraries / Hardware / DataLogic_QLM600 / Hardware types
Insert/Replace Hardware Type(s)...
At right of the file name Select "Profibus (*.gs?)"
File name : your gsd file
As you can see in the windows of some steps above mentioned,
Some configuration for the conversion may be selected / changed.
If you have more than one type, you have to select the approppriate one,
probably according number of data bytes in Profibus message.
