  1. I'm sorry, guys, but I wouldn't be asking if I hadn't dedicated about 12 hours to this already. Long story short: ACS800 with RPBA-01 Profibus Adapter and RTAC-01 Pulse Encoder Interface. All we send to the drive (aside from CW permissives) is a position reference, and I believe the DriveAP functions execute how the drive will achieve that position. My final aim is to separate the encoder from going back to the drive, to instead going to a FM350-1 Counter module. I'm following someone elses work that is long gone, has been changed multiple times, and comments are almost non-existent. Where I'm stuck is understanding the data coming from the drive and being sent to it. PPO Type 5; DPV 0. In Step7, I have a DB for 20 bytes of data to drive and another DB for 20 bytes received from drive. I understand (with respect to data from drive) that it should be: SW; ACT; PZD3...PZD10 (10 x 2 byte Words). But, when I looked through all the settings in the group 51 parameters, the values in the form of (xxyy; index then subgroup; ex: 106 is parameter 1.06) don't seem to exist in the ACS800 Firmware manual. PZD 3 OUT: 7 --- PZD3 IN: 6 PZD 4 OUT: 8 --- PZD4 IN: 10 PZD 5 OUT: 0 --- PZD5 IN: 106 PZD 6 OUT: 0 --- PZD6 IN: 0 PZD 7 OUT: 0 --- PZD7 IN: 611 PZD 8 OUT: 0 --- PZD8 IN: 612 PZD 9 OUT: 0 --- PZD9 IN: 701 PZD 10 OUT: 0 --- PZD 10 IN: 706 The manual says parameter values 1-99 refer to a "Data Set" and each number specifies a certain word in a Data Set. For example, PZD3 IN: 6 refers to Data Set 2 Word 3, which is defined by paramater 92.03. But, that turns up something about short circuit protection, when what my DB value is displaying a distance (from a linear string pot encoder) that matches what the mill is actually at. The ACS800 manual says Data Set Actual Signal words are defined in Group 92. So I looked there: 92: DS Transmit (From Drive) --- 90: DS Receive (From PLC) 92.01: Status Word (Fixed) --- 90.01: 4501 92.02: 103 --- 90.02: 4309 92.03: 402 --- 90.03: 4505 92.04: 412 --- 90.04: 1 92.05:106 --- 90.05: 3 92.06: 0 Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Step7 on remote server

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone have experience with Tia Portal Step7 v.14 and Step7 Classic v.5.5 located on a remote server? We have several persons working on our PLC's. As it is they all have their own PC with Step7 + licenses. We were thinking about moving the software environment onto a server to reduce license and maintenance costs. Does anyone else have this setup? If yes do you have any tips or comments? Pros/cons? I already know now that you cannot autodetect/configure new devices from a remote server as the Step7 detection protocol doesn't work through a router. We can live with that. We need both TIA Portal and the Step7 Classic on the same server. Thanks
