its my first time using an anybus module and ive been tasked to download this configuration .cfg file. I’ve got a step by step on it which is great however im on site and i was not given any specfic cables for this. I’m using an anybus communicator profinet device ab17013C. its current connections is green profinet cable at the front and a D-type serial cable underneath.
so the instruction states to remove the current D type connector and to replace it with a usb programable cable. would this then be a d-type to usb cable, can it be any generic converter that I can order online or is there a specific pc-connector usb cable that comes with the anybus module?
i tried my ethernet cable to usb adapater and plugged it into the profinet port on the front but it doesnt get picked up by the CAS suite software. What cable could i use for this?
