KAS as Profinet master to Siemens G120C VFDs - application examples?
I need to integrate a few Siemens G120C VFDs into a KAS project and I'm wondering if there are any specific application examples out there. I found the app example created by Joe Parks where KAS is the Profinet Master (and I do appreciate that!), but I'm wondering if there are any more specific examples/walkthroughs/guides that use these VFD series as the slaves. I really just want to send some VFD parameters down to the VFDs based on user input from the HMI (configured with KVB - probably via recipes) - VFD start/stop would be handled via physical I/O, so for just periodic parameter changes communication speed isn't critical. I think this should be fairly straightforward, but seeing how someone else successfully set this up would probably help me a lot (I'm fairly new to Siemens/Profinet so bear with me).
