11 Loading PROFIBUS Gateway Module (PGM)
The Experion system provides the ability to build control strategies offline, without being connected to the
actual field components. The process of transferring the Control Strategy to the "live" working components in
the field is called the load operation.
The load operation functionally copies configuration data from the control strategy that is stored in the
Engineering Repository Database (ERDB) to the assigned field component in the system architecture. It
indirectly assures that the planned system matches the actual one. The communication addresses and physical
location assignments specified for components through Control Builder configuration must match the actual
addresses and locations of components in the system.
