Network settings can also be used to distribute I/O configuration. With the View →with DP Slaves/IO Devices on the network to browse displays or hides the DP Slave.
The DP master system configuration requires the following components:
PROFIBUS network (if it does not exist, drag the object from the network directory in PROFIBUS networks to network
In the envelope window).
DP master station of the workstation (if it does not exist, drag objects from the network directory for a Windows workstation to the network,
Open workstation with hardware configuration tool and select the DP master station, which can be integrated in the CPU can also be a
From the DP master station connection to PROFIBUS networks (in a hardware configuration tool, select the network, or
DP master station network configuration double click on the network connection, and then “hold“ and drag to a PROFIBUS network
In the network window, select that you want to configure from the DP master station. “PROFIBUS DP” under network objects list found in the subdirectories and DP Slave station, drag it to the network window, fill in the Properties window that pops up.
Select DP Slave, and then use Edit → Open set the parameters Object to DP Slave. The hardware configuration is started. Now set the user data address, select I/O module or module from the station.
If you have previously created an intelligent DP Slave station, you can connect it to a network. Directories in the network object can be “Configured stations (configured workstation)“ find intelligent type of the DP Slave, which together with the DP master station of your choice and drag the network window and then fill in the Properties window pops up (and identical in hardware configuration tool).
First select the master or the master station of the slave, with the View → Highlight→ Master System can stress the node configuration DP master system. With the View → Rearrange, can be connected to the optimal allocation of DP DP Slave on the primary station.
