Hi Face Book.

You have configured your Slave as Node 6. Your Modules have different amount of Bytes depending on the slice/ module configured in your real hardware. 

You should check this then ammend as required.

HI

The program is already run without any problem as the designer do.

I need to know the concept of this.

What do you mean by concept?

The way your Slave Hardware is laid out is all dependant on your field wiring and the requirements of this.

Hi

X67BC6321.L08

X67DM1321.L08

And other modules

I don't find  all of these I/O in the PLC modules

Those should correspond to Head Module part number. 

Are you saying those numbers dont correspond to your actual hardware part numbers? 

If you cant find them in your catalog, chances are you need a .GSD file update.

NO

What is the relation between 

X67BC6321.L08

and the modules in the table?

------

Module:

X67DM1321.L08

and reserve 10 byte

for digital 16 I/O Module

How?

The reason you have more BYTES than required is because maybe they are reserved for Diagnostic Bits. For this information you will have to test online with a VAT table or consult the documentation.

The ET200 slices also have this sometimes.

X67BC6321 is your PROFIBUS SLAVE Module- the profibus cable will enter here and terminate; or move on to the next node PROFIBUS node.

X67DM1321 is an 2 BYTE I/O Module that is connected directly on the above module- this then passes on to Slot 2 on the X2X Expansion Port.

So in brief, the answer to your question is that they are 'local expansion modules' on your BR&R Slave...not profibus.

Yes

But Iam not understand the connection between them

Can you draw a  diagram explain the connection between the modules?

They will be in a 'daisy chain' like Profibus.

The data between these module is passed back to X67BC6321 who in turn passes the IO Status to and from the Profibus.

Hi

 What are the physical I/O addresses that used in these modules?

"these modules contain large byte of I/O addresses"

I need to know how to address I/O for these modules in general?

Hi

If we have  X67DM1321.L08  

I/O as in attached photo
in HW Configuration:

I  Address:86.......91

Q Address:86....89

What are the addresses for these channels in this case?

Your first 2 BYTES here will contain real IO Statuses.

The last 2 BYTEs is of type Unsigned Integer which contains the serial number for each module.

Hi Face Book.

You will have to consult the manual and individual modules in more detail for this.

If you have eletrical schematics this will be easy to cross reference with the SIMATIC Manager.
