ProfiNet in PacDrive 3

Hi everyone,

 

for a customer's project I would need to know how is the ProfiNet device description file (GSDML) integrated into the PacDrive 3 motion controller.

 

Could anyone please support me?

 

Thanks a lot,

Pierpaolo

Re: ProfiNet in PacDrive 3

Hi Pierpaolo,

 

you may refer to the information already discussed in this topic: Profinet-Siemens-to-Schneider 

 

In addition I can provide you the following general information...

 

PacDrive3 controllers from version SoMachine Motion 4.4.x can be configured as Profinet IO controller (master) or Profinet IO device (slave).
I.e. In the programming software SoMachine Motion (SoMM) the GSDML file of the Siemens control has to be integrated and vice versa.
The motion controller is not shown in the Siemens software; only the interface is configured.
Please see the descriptions attached to this post for more details on the configuration:

Note: If SoMachine Motion has been installed on your PC, you will find the fieldbus device description in the following folder:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\SoMachine Software\V4.41 Motion\Documents\FieldbusDescriptionFiles

 

Best regards

Ralf
