S4C+ Profibus DP slave setup


What do you do to set up a DSQC 352? I want to control the robot with a PLC (Siemens S7-1200 with Profibus DP master module). What exactly do I need to do? Can't find it on manual or google. I've connected them with the cable.

Thank you


  • Hey!

    I think this is all you have to do in the eio.cfg file.
    You also need to set the device net address correct and also set the correct input/output size in the plc.

    You can read about that in thi link:


          -Name "Profibus" -Type "d352" -Bus "BASE" -Digin 129 -Digout 128\
          -PollRate 100 -Param "Profibus_VAL"
    Profibus_VAL = EIO_PARAM_VALUE:

          -Name "MasterInputSize" -Value "8"

          -Name "MasterOutputSize" -Value "8"

          -Name "StationAddress" -Value "4"
  • Thanks Joar! I got it working. Now I have 128 extra I/O to the PLC:)
  • Hello Jeffdu,

    I have the same configuration:
    - ABB S4C+ controller
    - ABB DSQC352 Profinet
    - Siemens C1214C DC/DC/DC
    - Siemens CM 1243-5 Profibus card

    The ABB is configured as adress 3, and the PLC is configured as adress 2
    But the PLC keeps reporting to have no connection with the ABB controller.

    Could you show how you configured the Siemens PLC for the profibus connection?

    Best regards,

    does it require to set DSQC352  same address in both place ?
     In EIO.CFG and jumper pins(X5)?
