i am trying to configure an ANYBUS X-GATEWAY (AB7843-B) and the problem is:
1- the connection (PC-ANYBUS) done but i am not able to upload the GSD file (communication time out)
2- after searching the problems i found the Hyperterminal protocol but also when i click on send or recieve files after a few seconds the same msg appears (communication time out )
ASKING IF I CAN HAVE THE HYPERTERMINAL COMMUNICATION STEPS PDF FILE
Just making sure, have you already followed the steps below?
Thank you for your help but,
For the steps and as you know, the anybus we have is an old version,
and we do not have the right manual guide (not available online).
i will be very thankful if you can send me a link where i can download
the manual of the anybus AB7843-B the way to be able to follow those
steps, or some details for the steps(step1, step6, and the
communication time out cause), note that this is the first time we
work on this kind of communication protocol.
Thank you and kind regards,
You should be able to find the manual here:
No because the steps 1,5and 6 are not clear for us.
What is the node address for this device?
The connection is not complished due to a msg(communication time out)
Those are the problems we have on site.
The node address can be set on the device here. I’d start with this part, and power cycle the device after you set the address and see if you’re still getting the communication timeout
You mean i have to try all the numbers to see if the communication will work ??
The Anybus Node address is something that you can choose and is set using those dials on the top of it. Once you choose the node address you should be able to go through onto the next step in the configuration manager
Thank you Mr Trim for your heelp I’ll do all the steps and come back to you in few days
