800xA Profibus DP topology with alternating slaves
I have AC800M PM860 with S800 I/O connected via ModuleBus. Now I have to extend the system with additional devices controlled via Profibus DP.
I need to add master communication unit (CI854A?) to the controller.
Slave devices are alternating; 4 slave devices are physically connected to the bus but only 2 are active (power supplied) at the time. I think commonly used Profibus DP line topology is not possible in this case.
What kind of network topology I should apply with Profibus DP slaves and which components I need to set it up?
Thank you for your help!
