I have problems connecting an Anybus CompactCom m40 with Profinet to a 1500-series Simatic PLC. The PLC’s message is “Not reachable”.
The switch settings of the ABCC40 are both set to 3. I set the host name to “pam-003”. This is meant to be a very simple setup (replacing an older setup with ABIC Profibus), used in stand-alone shift register mode and connected to a modest FPGA. Using its web-server the module works impeccable, I couldn’t yet test output data, but I see the 8 input bytes and 8 output bytes and can read correct data as it should be.
The PLC is a simatic 1511-1PN PLC with a Profinet communication module CM1542-1, to which the ABCC40 is connected. I made the GSD-file with the generator tool, which I think I installed correctly. All in’s and out’s are defined, the Ethernet address set to 192.168.0.3, Profinet device name “pam-003”, device number “3”.
Of course I tried many different configurations, different GSD-files, the ABCC40 directly to the PLC, the result always being Status “Not reachable”.
Would anyone have an idea what I could be doing wrong? An almost identical setup is running fine with Profibus communication modules and many “old” ABIC’s.
Thank you in advance for your answers.
