Can we connect a device to Magelis HMI on DeviceNet Protocol.
The Magelis HMI can be connected to DeviceNet network as a slave unit not as master. To Connect Magelis HMI on DeviceNet you need to have XBT-ZGDVN DeviceNet Slave unit which can only be mounted on :
1. XBTGK Series
2. XBTGT2000 Series or higher and HMIGTU
As far as configuration is concern you will have to select the Driver in Vijeo Designer for DeviceNet which you can find under Fieldbus--> Devicenet Slave after that you will need to setup communication interface and variable address for the variable you want to use.
