It’s well known that Profibus is quite extended within industrial enviroment.
But this doesn’t mean that you need to use Siemens inverter when the fieldbus network is already setup!
We know that Simatic Step7 is not a piece of cake…
So, on the tutorial below you will find step by step, how to manage Simatic Step7 to be able to add Delta Inverter VFD-EL (with Profibus card CMA-PD01) into some profibus network.
Probably you will need GDS file.
GSD file (For VFD-B, VFD-F, VFD-M, VFD-S, VFD-L, VFD-E)
GSD for CME-PD01 GSD
And the tutorial
Delta – Siemens comunication VFD-EL via CME-PD01 (Profibus)
Let us know If this information is important for you, and we’ll post the same for new inverters like C2000 or CP200.
Ah! and remeber our profibus slave module in case you need to add cost effective remote I/O
