  2. 2. Page 220th Anniversary Conference – PROFIBUS Device Configuration, Andy Verwer, June 2013 Configuration  Network configuration is the procedure of setting up the Class-1 master to communicate with its allocated slave devices.  Configuration is carried out with software tools that are specific to the master that is being used.  Siemens controllers – Step-7 Hardware Manager  Mitsubishi controllers – GX Configurator, etc  All PROFIBUS device suppliers provide standard “General Station Description” or GSD files.  GSD files can be read by the configuration tool to provide detailed information on the devices being used on the network.

  4. 4. Page 420th Anniversary Conference – PROFIBUS Device Configuration, Andy Verwer, June 2013 GSD files  GSD files simplify the integration of devices from different vendors.  Every PROFIBUS device is given a unique identification number which identifies the type of device and provides a simple check that the configuration is correct.  The ID number is just a 4-digit hexadecimal code. E.g. ID = 806A – Siemens ET200S slave  The GSD file is specific to a particular ID number. So if we know the device ID number we can easily identify the GSD file.
  5. 5. Page 520th Anniversary Conference – PROFIBUS Device Configuration, Andy Verwer, June 2013 Our Two networks 1. A WAGO Industrial PC with a Class-1 master controlling several DP slaves in VTC Racks 1 & 2. This network also incorporates a Procentec COMbricks device with a transparent PA coupler module controlling several PA slaves. 2. A second network consists of several DP slaves in VTC Racks 3 & 4, A COMbricks unit with PA coupler controlling several PA slaves. This network is controlled by ProfiCaptain (Part of the ProfiTrace package The COMbricks units are connected via Ethernet to a wireless hub with open access from any of the PCs on the desks.

  7. 7. Page 720th Anniversary Conference – PROFIBUS Device Configuration, Andy Verwer, June 2013 The PLUGFEST  The Exercise in this session is to add some new devices onto these networks, get them configured and working.  Devices that have been brought along:  Procentec PROFIBUS slave with digital IO. Just released device which is part of the COMbricks range.  Rotork valve & actuator (details unknown at this time)  WAGO slave (details unknown at this time)  E+H PA device (details unknown at this time)  I will demonstrate the method that can be used on network 1 with the Procentec PROFIBUS slave.  You can then have a go yourself - with some help from our experts!
