Why does the CP 1616 / CP 1604 as PROFINET IO controller and/or PROFINET IO device not go into data exchange mode after the configuration has been successfully loaded?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

The CP 1616 and the CP 1604 can be used as PROFINET IO controller and/or PROFINET IO device. For this function it is not sufficient just to load the configuration into the CP 1616 or CP 1604. The PROFINET IO function needs an application based on the IO Base of the PROFINET IO programming interface.

  • The procedure of an IO Base controller user program in the IO controller is given in section 3.3.
  • The procedure of an IO Base device user program in the IO device is given in section 6.3.
