The RPBA-01 PROFIBUS DP Adapter module

The RPBA-01 PROFIBUS DP Adapter module is an optional device for ABB drives which enables the connection of the drive to a PROFIBUS network. The drive is considered as a slave on the PROFIBUS network. Through the RPBA-01 PROFIBUS DP Adapter module, it is possible to:

  • give control commands to the drive (Start, Stop, Run enable, etc.)
  • feed a motor speed or torque reference to the drive
  • give a process actual value or a process reference to the PID controller of the drive
  • read status information and actual values from the drive
  • change drive parameter values
  • reset a drive fault.

The PROFIBUS commands and services supported by the RPBA-01 PROFIBUS DP Adapter module are discussed in the chapters DP-V0 communication and DP-V1 communication. Please refer to the user documentation of the drive as to which commands are supported by the drive. The adapter module is mounted into an option slot on the motor control board of the drive. See the Hardware Manual of the drive for module placement options. Configuration of the master station requires a type definition (GSD) file. For DP-V0 communication, the file is available from or an ABB representative (the filename is ABB_0812.GSD). For DP-V1 communication, the type definition (GSD) file is available from an ABB representative (the filename is ABB10812.GSD).
