The configuration with regard to the I/O modules PP72/48 is carried out using
the DMF file SIEM80A2.DMF.
For installation of the DMF file, see Subsection 7.1.3., page 7-209 DMF files.
To make parameterization of equidistant communication with PROFIBUS DP
easier, we recommend inserting all required DP slaves 611U into the configura-
tion before setting the times for equidistant communication.
To insert a DP slave PP72/48 into the configuration, open the hardware catalog
using menu command View > Catalog.
The DP slave PP72/48 is to be found at:
PROFIBUS DP > further field units > IO > PP input/output module
Click with the left mouse button on the DP slave PP72/48 in the hardware cata-
log (see Note) and drag it onto the DP master system in the station window,
holding down the left mouse button.
As DP slave PP72/48, the directory symbol with the designation "PP input/
output module" and not the module symbol beneath with the designation "uni-
versal module" must be selected.
Make sure that the cursor that appears as a crossed-out circle when dragging
the DP slave is positioned exactly on the DP master system so that it can be
inserted into the configuration.
The DP master system is displayed in the station window with the following
