EDS-files for DeviceNet communication modules

Description:
By means of the DeviceNet EDS- and Icon-files, which can be downloaded here, the Lenze communication modules for the AIF- and FIF-interfaces and the Lenze IO 1000 system are inserted in the DeviceNet configuration software.

System requirements:
Independent from the used PLC-hardware the EDS files write the Lenze communication modules hardware-conform.
According to the used PLC- and DeviceNet hard- and software these files are to be inserted in the corresponding configuration software.

Available EDS-files for the EMF2179IB AIF-communication module:

For any number of process data words only the file EMF2179IB.eds is available. The EDS file refers to two process data words. If the number of process data words in the module is modified, the data mapping in Allen Bradley scanners is to be made manually, see article  Data mapping with E82ZAFVC and RSNetWorx for DeviceNet.

Available EDS-files for the EMF2175IB AIF-communication module:

Totally there are 10 files 2175IBxx.eds available, xx is the number of the process data words to be transmitted. If the EMF2175IB communication module is used, all 10 files should be installed in the configuration software, so that the correct EDS file dependent on the set number of words is available.

Available EDS-files for the FIF-fieldbus function modules:

E82ZAFD
Totally there are 12 files E82ZAFDxx.eds available, xx is the number of the process data words to be transmitted. If the E82ZAFD fieldbus function module is used, all 12 files should be installed in the configuration software, so that the correct EDS file dependent on the set number of words is available.  

E82ZAFV
For any number of process data words only the file E82ZAFV.eds is available. The EDS file refers to four process data words. If the number of process data words in the module is modified, the data mapping in Allen Bradley scanners is to be made manually, see article  Data mapping with E82ZAFVC and RSNetWorx for DeviceNet.

E94AYCDN
The EDS file E94AYCDN_V0100.eds supports a configuration of a maximum of 32 process data words. The user data lengths for process input data and process output data may be differing. The user data lengths (number of process data) must be set and stored in the device via the »Engineer« or the scanner.

IO-1000 DeviceNet interface
The EDS file  Lenze-EPM-S150_64_V10.eds supports all configuration of the IO 1000 configurations. Through this variety from the IO 1000 system the data lengths for process input data and process output data may be differing

Available Lenze symbol file:
Within the Rockwell configuration software for DeviceNet the file Lenze.ico can be inserted in the corresponding Icon-directory for easier graphic identification of Lenze communication modules.

Software installation:
Unpack the ZIP-file in any directory on your PC and insert the EDS files and optionally the Icon-file according to the used DeviceNet configuration software.
If the Rockwell software for DeviceNet is used, the files will be installed by the software RSNetWorx, menu Tools by means of the EDS-Wizzard. For an easier overview the files can be copied to the directory RSCOMMON within the program directories of the Rockwell software.
