Edit/change of slave adress on profibus PA
Hi, is it possible to edit/change the adress on the connected Profibus PA slaves?`Trough DTM or Web-interface on the CI654. The PA slaves are Endress&Hauser Prosonic Flow 92.
On our PLC there are 92 PA slaves, and when the electronic on one of them gets broken. We need to chnage the adress on the new PA slave from the default to the adress on the broken device.
Seems you are using System 800xA and AC 800M. I am not sure how it is managed in sstem 800xA will check and get back to you with specific answer.
But what I know with other control system Freelance changing device profibus address via DTM depends on specific device and device DTM. So check with specific device vendor if it's possible in mentioned DTM then CBM frame or system 800xA frame should allow to change profibus address via DTM.
Secondly so far what I know for some devices it's possible to set device address via dip/rotary switch and via DTM where priority goes to dip/rotary switch. So incase there is power cycle even though address set via DTM is lost and device aquires address whatever set via hardware switches. so keep that also in mind.
It´s possible to change the adress of Profibus PA devices with Profibus master CI854.
You log in to the web interface and use "Live list". In the list you will se all devices on the cable.
In the list you will find the device with default adress. Somewhere in the web interface of CI854 you can find "Change adress on device" or something like that, in that field you have to point the old adress and the new adress you want to assign.
I hope that will help you solve the problem.
Have a really nice day.
