|Question:||Does Yaskawa supply an EDS file for the MP920 [260-IF] DeviceNet module?|
|Answer:||Yes. However, the MP920 [260-IF] DeviceNet I/O is fully configurable (from one byte to 256 bytes in & one byte to 256 bytes out), and is considered a "communications adapter." An EDS file is not really necessary, because the MP920/260-IF does not have fixed I/O configuration, nor does it require explicit messaging for set-up.|
There are three example EDS files attached in the attached zip file. The first is the "official" EDS file that contains no data regarding I/O configuration. This is the ODVA certified EDS file for the MP920 [260-IF]. The I/O must be configured properly in the MP920 [260-IF] and the attached Master (or slaves in the case of the MP920 [260-IF] being the master).
The second and third files were created as examples with Rockwell's DeviceNet manager software (stub files) for the MP920/260-IF as a DeviceNet slave, with 8 bytes in/8 bytes out and 16 bytes in/16 bytes out, respectively. Again, the MP920/260-IF can be configured for an number of bytes in/out from one to 256.
1) MP940DNET.eds - Original EDS file for MP940/260-IF
2) mp940d_8bytes.eds - EDS stub that was created for 8 bytes in / 8 bytes out
3) mp940d_16bytes.eds - EDS stub that was created for 16 bytes in / 16 bytes out
The MP920 [260-IF] supports Polled and Strobed I/O. Explicit Messaging is also possible. However, additional ladder code is required. Please refer to the 260IF DeviceNet System User's manual [SIEZ-C887-5.2] for further configuration information.
(Note: The EDS files are the same as those for the MP940 module)
