AB-7832 with a DP/DP Coupler

Hi Kevin,

If your DP/DP coupler allows it, you should be able to do a Slave-to-Slave configuration.

If it does require a master, then you would need an Anybus AB7800.

However, before purchasing anything, can you see if it would be possible for us to take a look at the setup through teamviewer to see if we can help?

Thanks,
Tim

Good Morning Tim,
Thanks for your response and all of your help so far. I got the part info for the coupler. It is a Siemans DP/DP coupler, release 2. Part # 6es7 158-0AD01-0XA0. I tried to find info on if it is slave-slave compatible on the Siemans site with no luck so far.

As far as the team viewer idea goes, it may be possible I will have to ask the customer if there is anyway I could be allowed onto a guest network to do so and get back to you.

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Tim

Haven’t been able to get on site to look at this set-up and my schedule with the customer is still in limbo, but based on what I’ve read in the user manual for this DP/DP coupler it is not capable of slave to slave communication so we may need to go with a different Anybus device.

The customer does have a guest network I could be given access to if we still wanted to look through via Team Viewer whenever I do end up back there.

Thanks for your support so far.
