R037_How to configure a TesysU on Profibus with Siemens Step7

Goals and Symptoms

This document will describe you how to configure TeSysU on a network Profibus with a PLC Siemens S300 station. The CPU is a CPU 315 - 2 DP with Profibus port embedded.
We use Simatic S7, STEP 7 V5.4 SP3. Into Simatic you have two sub-softwares to configure the Profibus Network : NetPro and HW Config.
NetPro: you define which kind of product you need on your Profibus network (TesysU, TesysT…)
HW Config:

    • PLC hardware configuration
      Configuration for each device Network (TesysT with or without expension module, which control unit for TesysU and which information you want to exchange on the network)
