APP NOTE: Communicating with Ethernet XT Profinet From Siemens S7-1200 PLC

EthernetXT Profinet and Siemens S7-1200

When setting up a Profinet network, Profinet controllers are programmed with a special Profinet Configuration tool, like the Step7 from Siemens. This document illustrates an example procedure for configuring communications between Acromag BusWorks® Series Profinet modules and a Siemens S7-1200 Programmable Controller. It is assumed that the user has a working knowledge of the Siemens TIA Portal environment, ladder logic programming, and the S7-1200 hardware. TIA Portal V11 is used for illustration purposes. At this point, it is assumed the user has already created a project and installed and configured an S7-1200.
