New Components CI920A are released for the use in Freelance Systems at version 9.2SP1 only. See release notes , page 14 : Release_Notes_2PAA107377_C_en_S900_I_O_Release_Notes_PROFIBUS_DP_Communication_
Possibility for the customer project :
# either use CI920 modules (old fashion) in v8.1 -> use spare parts catalog
# or update the system to the current Freelance version (my recommandation)
