Item Description
PWorx00002540 If there are multiple CRP 811 Profibus modules traffic copped in a project, only one of them can be configured. This is because only one .cnf file is allowed to be imported into the configuration extension in the Profibus setup and each CRP811 card requires a separate .cnf file
