I am working on a AB7072, ulitmately this will be connected to 10 pressure gauges, in a Serial to Ethernet IP configuration.
On the serial side, the max baud is 57,xxx hz., which is pretty slow when you connect this many devices. However not all the pressure gauges are of equal importance. So my question is, is there some way in the Anybus Configuration Manager that we can “scan” some of these more than others? I’m thinking the Timing parameters are where to look, but I wanted verification on that.
A second question.is that I need to reconfigure my Module Properties in Logix 5000 to accomodate more than one pressure gauge. Right now my Connection Parameters are 100 (Assembly Instance) and 12 (8-bit size) for the Input. 150 (Assembly Instance) and 2 (8 bit size) for the output. My configuration is 1 (Assembly Instance) and 0 (8-bit Size). This was for one pressure gauge.
So looking at my Subnetwork Monitor, my Input area is now 173 bytes and my Output area is 34 bytes and my General Area is 529 bytes.
So how does this relate to the numbers in the Logix 5000 Ethernet Connection Parameters? Is it as simple as copying them over or is there some division involved?. BTW, the comm format is SINT and the style of connection is a Generic Ethernet Module.
