I have a robot IRB6650 with an IRC5 robotware 6.06. The robot has the option 888-2 PROFINET Controller/Device and has a CI502 bus module with a DX581 profisafe module.
I need to add a PROFINET device to it. Neither working with ABB robots nor configuring PROFINET is something I do everyday. When looking at the I/O Configurator in RobotStudio it looks straight forward to do. However, in the Application manual, PROFINET Controller/Device, 3HAC065546-001 it is written that the I/O configuration can not be used with my version of RobotWare.
For RobotWare 6.08and previous, to be able to configure the PROFINET controller,
an external PROFINET configuration tool is needed. There are two different versions
available: PROFINET-IO Configurator Express and PROFINET-IO Configurator
Professional. Supplied in the RobotWare distribution package is the Express
I can not find any PROFINET-IO configurator. Nowhere!
The robot is in full time production on another site and to have access to it is hard. I need to be sure to not mess anything up once I start.
Could someone give me a hint on how to proceed? What software could I use and it would be great with an instruction list.
EthernetIP and other protocols are a breeze compare to configure PROFINET
