Connecting ABB ACS800 via Profibus to AC800M
what ist the best way to connect an ACS800 Drive via FPBA-01 Profibus Module to an AC800M Controller (800xA 5,1)? Is it possible to use the PrcessObjDrive Library? Is there a HWD file avaiable? The AC800M only need to send ON/OFF and Setpoint and need to receive Load, L/R, Error... Does anyone have an example, or some screen shots or a description?

Control Builder M has default hardware library for RPBA-01 called "ABBDrvRPBACI854HwLib". So, I will recommend you use this HWD and select PPO-Type 5. Furthermore, you must define profibus parameters on VFD according Firmware Version.
Attached you can find a simple table including basic parameters. (unfortunatly is in spanish)
may be you need RPBA-01 to connect ACS800 drive to AC800M controller..not FPBA-01.
In ProfiBus application for drives, you need the appropriate file GSD for the controller.
For the start/stop drive, the control word have inside precise bit to set to 1 to obtain the desired funtion, second you must write the reference speed to the drive.
Drive respond via status word the condition inside the drive and speed actual, and if you set in group parameter 51 (drive site) the correct pointer, and the correct PPO, you can obtain from drive current, torque, and any other parameter visible in group 1
Hope this help you
sorry to come back with an additional question: I just saw that the ACS880 (not ACS800) was delivered with a Profibus Module called "FPBA-01" In the moment I do not see the difference to the "RPBA-01". Does anybody know the difference between this two modules? Can I use the "FPBA-01" or do I need to replace it with the "RPBA-01" module?
Thanks for answers,
