Profibus connection issue

3 posts in this topic

Hi I hope someone can help.

When installing new hardware onto a profibus network, for example a sensor, how can I get the information needed from the sensor to talk to PLC. I have already installed the GSD file for the sensor. We have the logic from the old sensor already installed in the PLC program but we have installed a new one onto the profibus network but I don't know how to get the information we have onto the new sensor and working on the profibus network.

If anyone needs anymore information please ask.

I'm relatively new to the world of PLC's, manufacturing and automation.

Kind

Regards

Philip

Sounds like you have the hard part done :)

The manufacturer of your device should have a manual that describes what the data/gsd means. 
Whose device and what part number is it ?

There are thousands of manufacturers of profibus devices. You will need this manual

Hi Jrw.

Thank you for the reply. I have obtained the relevant manuals. I will go through them and see if I can notice anything that needs to be done.

Will keep you posted
