At my firm we are working with the S7-1200 PLC of Siemens. We want to communicate with a slave device that is a custom-made AC-unit. Therefore we purchased the ‘cm CANopen’ device 021620-B to establish this connection. The whole setup (s7-1200 + cm Canopen + slave) is correctly connected. I downloaded the configuration studio and here I need to download the EDS-file into the module. The problem is that the manufacturer doesn’t have an EDS-file of their own custom-made unit, only a document filled with information and adresses that can be used to make an EDS-file of our own. Now is my question: is it possible to create an EDS-file with the given information (like the document the manufacturer send us) and if yes, how is it possible?
I can send the file the manufacturer gave us if necessary.
