Communicating Schneider ATV61 with AC800m for VFD drive on PROFIBUS
We are using ABB PLC 800: Compact HMI 5.1 with Compact control builder in a plant.
I need to configure "Schneider ATV61 VFD Drive " with our ABB controller on PROFIBUS
my query is:
I have got LOGIC/CODE prepared for the same exact process used on an ABB drive.
and that Logic has used RPBA, in coding, and under it : PPP Protocol type4.
I want to ask that : CAN I USE THAT LOGIC PREPARED FOR ABB DRIVE,....in my process which is using SCHNEIDER DRIVE.
Our process , entire other program, all are same. So can we USE the SAME code, or I need to do some extra?
Seeking valuable answer and Suggestions
Thanks a lot !!
Maybe. Thats not a question anyone else can answer without seeing your code. It depends what you are trying to reuse.
if you are asking...
- can you use the same hardware definitions for the profibus comms? - No. The drives memory adress layout and control bits will be completely different.
- can you use the same Function Block for the drives in your application code - maybe, but probably not. You certainly will not be able to use the standard ABB drives function blocks because these depend on the exact structure of the profibus control words used by the drive.
- can you use the same application code but using function blocks for siemens drives - hopefully yes, as long as you've written your application to be reusable.
