Hello PLC guys. I need some advice. I have 2 VFDs ABB ACS 850 with FPBA-01 PROFIBUS DP adapter module. I want to connect those vfds with PLC 1400. I want to read and write some parameters  from and into the drive. As i'm new to this field i need some advice from all. I need help in PLC side to do the communication.
If anyone can help that would be great, thank you.

I can't think of an easy way to do that.    The MicroLogix 1400 controller has no Profibus DP scanner or master module available.   It's a MicroLogix, meant to control only I/O devices that are physically connected to it, not networked ones.

Ideally, you'll connect the VFDs to the controller with digital I/O for start/stop/jog and with an analog channel for speed reference.
