Outline the steps necessary to setup the QCXxx-F (-FM) controllers for Profinet.
All users of QCXxx-F (-FM) controllers integrating with a Profinet Master PLC.
- From the Main Menu go to Settings-Fieldbus
- In the Type dropbox select Profinet
- Enable Bus Control and Logs
- Under Input Assignment click on one of the Bits to open the Input Bit Assignment Screen.
- Select the required Data for each Bit, then select OK at the bottom of the screen.
- Follow the same procedure to assign the Output Bytes.
- After the Input and Output Assignments are programmed select the Save icon in the top right corner.
--Note: Follow the attached procedure to assign the appropriate network settings for Port 2 to communicate with the PLC.
--Note: Port 1 is used for accessing the controller web browser and should be on a different subnet than Port 2.
--Note: There is an option on the Fieldbus Setup screen to select the PCM Profile. Enabling this will set the Input and Output Bits to the same mapping as the PCM controllers.
See the attached link for the appropriate GSDML file. The controller should be updated to version 2.0.27 or greater before using the Profinet option.
See the attached document for a Siemens setup procedure.
See the attached spreadsheet showing the PCM Bit Mapping.
The PLC and controller must be on similar timing. The INSIGHT controller expects data no faster than every 50 ms. Customer PLCs must have cycle rates no faster than 50 ms or communications issues could arise.
