[KRABB]Interface between AC900F and DI572
Once I asked if AC900F can communicate S500.
In detail, I am trying to connect from AC900F to DI57.
However, seems it does not work.
Does DI572 need something(GSD file maybe?) more to communicatie with AC900F?

Exactly. S500 modules are not supported on the Local I/O bus of AC 900F. They only can be used as Remote I/O via Profibus. For this GSD files should be available on the ABB website.
If you want to attach I/O modules directly to the right connector of the AC 900F you have to use modules of the S700 I/O system. Only these are supported as direct I/O.
To connect a S500 IO Module to AC900F via PROFIBUS you need a Bus Head Module CI541 or CI542. This Module have some IO's onboard. Additional IO's like DI572 can be connected to the CI5xx. In the moment the DI572 is not yet integrated in the GSD File of the CI5xx. We expect a new GSD File within the next two or three weeks.
As workaround maybe it helps to use a DI571 (8 instead of 16 Inputs)
The new GSD file with DI572 is available via the link below:
