Profibus Comunication with MH50 robot DX100 Controller

  • Hi Everyone

    I have old MH50 robot with DX100 Controller.

    I want to communicate the robot with S7-300 as profibus master.

    I tried mounting simatic CP5611 profibus card in the PCI slot.

    It detects and displays in options boards but does not show any configuration.

    Has any one tried this?

    Please guide if this is the right way.

  • In the Anybus configurator did you import a GSD file? Start a new project then drag the master into the project window?

    I know a thing or two, because I’ve seen a thing or two. Don't even ask about a third thing. I won't know it.

  • Thanks a lot 95devils

    i am not using any Anybus product.

    I have directly installed a Siemens Profibus Card CP5612 on the PCI slot of DX100 Controller.

    I have no idea how to proceed further. Is it possible to do communication between S7-300 PLC and yaskawa DX100 robot controller using CP5611 profibus card?

    If yes than i need some help.

  • I believe 95Devils is correct, these products are made by Anybus.

    In the hardware config of your S7-300, you should see an anybus node, clicking on this you should see the HMS GSD file listed there somewhere. In here you need to configure the I/O range for the card. Then in Maintenance mode on the DX100, you need to configure the same IO size and configure the profibus address. Make sure you hit enter after this and confirm the settings, then it will go to the IO mapping screen (forget what this is called off the top of my head) where you must press enter again to bring up the confirmation window. This will enable the card in the DX100. After this, you can troubleshoot using the lights on the card and referring to the manual.
