Hi all, i need to create a new dp2 file for a profibus network on a Mitsubishi Q series PLC. I have the PLC program (gx iec developer) and i have all the individual Details of each node. I have created a new configurator file and built all the nodes with their corresponding GSD files but i’m not sure how to use the IO mapper to map send/receive bits correctly. Can anyone help?
Thanks for your help with this! I’m getting there. Couple more questions, how do you find out what the profibus master module node address is without the configurator file to hand? Also i think my plc requires the profibus to be in mode E extended mode. How do i select this on/off. thanks
Ok thanks, i am useing gx-configurator dp 7.13 and have built a network on the program. I am just hesitant to download the new file to the PLC. Is there anyway of verifying what is currently in the profibus card to what i have just built? Also under "master settings" it asks for starting IO number, i'm guessing this is referring to which slot the profibus card is located in the rack? Any help appreciated.
