Step #1: Opening Studio 5000 Logix Designer and create a new project.
Step #2: After creating a new file, users need to import the EDS File (.EDS), which can be downloaded here.
Remark: EDS is the abbreviation of Electronic Data Sheets, which is used to identify EtherNet/IP devices in EtherNet/IP.
Step #2-1: Click ‘Tools’ –> ‘EDS Hardware Installation Tool’
Step #2-2: Browse the .eds file and click ‘Next’
Step #2-3: Choose the imported .eds file
Step #2-4: Change the icon for the adapter.
Note: Module Definition shows input and output description of the PCIe module from Techman Robot.
Step #5. After creating a Techman Robot device on Studio 5000, we need to import Data Type (.L5X), which can be found in the package.
Note: L5X file is actually an XML file for importing programs and tag databases.
- PLC built-in input/output is the physical input and output of PLC.
- Fieldbus device input/output raw data is the raw data of Fieldbus device (robot)
- Tags using user-defined data type: Raw data will be transformed into user-defined data through the data type file (L5X).
