AB9008 Configuration

Hello,

We use AB9008 anybus gateway. Do you have step by step or guide to configure modbus?
What is configuration at Modbus TCP menu?
Until now data can’t communicate

Hi @raq,

This device is configured almost entirely using the built in web server. You can use the IPConfig utility to set the IP address. On the product page, you can find the user manual for the AB9008 and IPConfig which go into detail about how to configure the device:

https://www.anybus.com/support/file-doc-downloads/x-gateway-modbus-tcp-specific/?orderCode=ab9008

There is also a step-by-step guide for configuring the AB9008 with a Unity PLC if you look in the Application Notes section. Even if you aren’t using the same PLC this has a lot of good information and relevant steps for any configuration.

The reference is not clear, such as configure IO Map. Please make detail step for AB9008 and also other equipments.
Communication setup was already done but takes time. If the explanation is complete then it will be easy to configure.
Thank you

All of the information to configure the device is in this document so you will need to refer to it:

On one side of the device (MTCP Client) you will configure the MTCP servers using the web interface. On the other side (MTCP Server) you will have to use another MTCP client or configuration tool to exchange data with the server.

Please let me know if you have any specific questions related to the configuration as described in this manual.

Hello Kyle,

Thanks for your response. We already connected PLC Quantum with Anybus AB9008.
Data is read by PLC. But still problem. Current problem is all data will be loss after less than 1 day. Error feedback is transaction error (timeout), no data to display.

Is there any missing/wrong configuration to Anybus?

I attach data setting and data transaction inside Anybus.

Hi @raq,

Your ‘Read input registers’ command is timing out. Are you saying that it works for an entire day before this happens? If that is the case you should investigate what may be causing your slave device to go offline. I would also recommend increasing the timeout to at least double the scan time:

If you continue having issues, I would recommend getting in touch with your local support team in Asia by visiting https://mysupport.hms.se and creating a ticket. They will be better equipped to provide phone support and customer service.

Thank you,

Kyle

Hi Kyle,

I mean data loss for less than 1 day. Slave device always onlyne 7x24 hours.
Are all the setting already correct?

Thank you,
