CP 342-5 -- Why does my CP 342-5, operating as a DP master or DP slave, not switch to data transfer, even though the CPU is in RUN mode?
The CP 342-5 only goes into data transfer mode if you call call the "DP_SEND" (FC 1) or "DP_RECV" (FC 2) blocks in the user program.
DP master mode:
This operating state is OFFLINE as long as the blocks are not called (the BUSF LED flashes in the 6GK7 342-5DA02-0XE0 and 6GK7 342-5DF00-0XE0).
DP slave mode:
The response of the module varies depending on the release:
|CP order number||Operating mode|
|6GK7 342-5DA00-0XE0||OFFLINE as long as the blocks are not called.|
|6GK7 342-5DA01-0XE0||OFFLINE as long as the blocks are not called.|
|6GK7 342-5DA02-0XE0||The DP slave has a configuration of 0 bytes of input data and 0 bytes of output data. Since this data does not match the configuration which is defined in the DP master, no data transfer can take place (BUSF LED flashes).|
|6GK7 342-5DF00-0XE0||The DP slave has a configuration of 0 bytes of input data and 0 bytes of output data. Since this data does not match the configuration which is defined in the DP master, no data transfer can take place (BUSF LED flashes).|
Whenever you operate the module as a DP slave, always ensure that the data in the block call (in the DP slave station) is exactly the same length as the I/O data which is configured in the DP master for this DP slave.
