A SINAMICS converter with PROFINET interface should be connected to a PC with the software LabVIEW from National Instruments.

It should be realized a cyclic and acyclic I/O communication via any network interface of the PC being used. LabVIEW should operate in this case as PROFINET controller.

The application example shows how to connect a SINAMICS G/S converter to a standard PC by using a DLL which is integrated and running in LabVIEW.
For simpler handling, the application example VIs are provided for standard Siemens telegrams. Their interface emulates 1:1 the SINAMICS telegram interface:

  • Standard telegram 1 (closed-loop speed control)
  • Standard telegram 111 (EPOS operation)
  • Free telegram configuration

For non-cyclic communication, example VI is provided to read/write parameters; this can be expanded when required.

The DLL to be tied into LabVIEW is based on the product “PROFINET driver for controllers”.
A runtime license is required (e.g. single license  6ES7195-3AA05-0XA0).
