we are using ABB PLC 800. with Compact HMI 5.1, and compact control builder
We need to run SCHNEIDER VFD DRIE with our ABB syste. To be true , I dont know how to communcate with other system Drives ( here it s Schneider ATV61)
I performed the foll steps,but I dont know what exact steps to be done, because standard Modules RPBA, NPBA, will not be used here...as far i have studied.
1. I installed .GSD file from schneider system.
2. It provided me the hardware of Schneider in my list.
3. cabe connection were made on Drive and our CI854 card. the RXD LED was blinking then.
4. but I am not sure then ahead of it, which one sub -modules have to be used then. As i our ABB drive , we use RPBA, and under it ....POP TYPE PROTOCOL-4, ETC.
But after havng hardware generated in my configuration.
I couldnt have any POP type 4, like we used to have for our abb drives. rather I got correct subtypes of schneider
My main doubt is , like we open that POP type 4 of RPBA in case of ABB drive, so there when we double click this, it gives us a new window having : PROPERTY CONNECTION( where we used to declare our Input or Output variables for ABB DRIVE),
BUT in here in schneider it is not showing PROP CONN tab. , which means I think we have to create some virtual addresses for them.
But how to deal that??
Please provide me that HOW EXACTLY a Schneider drive is communicated with out ABB. I mean what exactly I should follow ??
Seeking valuavble reply of yours !! Thanks
first are you going to connect to the ATV61 through what?
the Modbus ... is RTU or TCP?
the Profibus ?
you had to choose first
then you need to find the registers addresses in the ATV61
that is you are going to use the Modbus
is you are going to use the Profibus , then you need the GSD file of the ATV
you should then deal with the ATV61 I/O's as virtual I/O's
hope that help
