PDMM Profinet Master

Do not have any sample programs showing a PDMM communicating with a Profinet AKD drive. When using a PDMM controller, most customers will use an EtherCAT AKD drive as it will allow much faster, cyclic communication for the controller to read and write drive parameters.

Most sample projects we have showing the PDMM doing Profinet communication are where it is a slave device communicating with a Siemens PLC that is the Profnet master. Attached is the one sample project I have showing the PDMM being a Profinet master communicating with a Profinet Bus Coupler that has slice I/O attached for extra digital inputs and outputs. Can look at the Fieldbus section of the KAS IDE to see how variable sharing for inputs and outputs was done.
