TeSys T EDS and GSD Files

Issue:
Which EDS or GSD File type should be used with the TeSys T on Profibus, DeviceNet or EtherNet IP protocol? 

Product Line:
TeSys T Motor Management Controller

Environment:
LTMR_E_ LTMR_D_ LTMR_P_

Cause:
Communications


Resolution:
There are 4 file types corresponding to the 4 possible configurations of the TeSys® T Motor Management
Controller system:
Choose When you want to use
TeSys T MMC L  A TeSys® T Motor Management Controller system without an expansion module,
configurable via the HMI port. This variant enables you to preserve your local
configuration.
TeSys T MMC L EV40  A TeSys® T Motor Management Controller system with expansion module, configurable
via the HMI port. This variant enables you to preserve your local configuration.
TeSys T MMC R  A TeSys® T Motor Management Controller system without expansion module
configurable via the network.
TeSys T MMC R EV40A  A TeSys® T Motor Management Controller system with expansion module configurable
via the network.


In local configuration mode, the parameter Config via Network Port Enable must be disabled. This mode
preserves the local configuration made using the Magelis® XBT or SoMove with the TeSys T DTM
through the HMI port and prevents PLC configuration via the network.

In remote configuration mode the parameter Config via Network Port Enable must be enabled. This
enables the PLC to remotely configure the LTMR controller.

NOTES: The parameters overwritten by the PLC will be lost. Remote mode is useful when replacing faulty
devices.
The Config via Network Port Enable parameter is set by default to allowed, to use the "L" files this will need to be changed to forbidden.
