abb plc pm572 and ethernet module cm572 confıguration error. Connectıon through tk503 cable.

I have 1 PM572(TK503 CABLE CONNECTION) plc, 3 DO562, 3 DI562 modules, 1 CM579 PNIO communication module. The problem I face here, after confıgurıng my project in automation builder v1.2 through CoDeSys when I try to login I get error confıguration problem. I have tried every thing like, changing comunication module and cpu respectively but all in vane. I also formated my pc and again install automation builder but didn't get any positive results.
Did anybody face the same problem or have any solution/advice?

Hi Faris

your problem may have originated from multiple causes ...first of all make sure that your Automation Buider session have correct define the communication parameters.

Do not forget that your domain / subnetmask and IP adress of PLC must be the same of PC - network where you should activate the project.

In the attached image one simple configuration in AB. The only difference I used in my project PM573 ETH.

For serial communication with TK cable, you must use com_param settings as the other attached file

Of course in Codesys the parameter are the same.

Hope this help you

Hi Mussolin,
Firstly thanx for your reply.
I checked the points you stated in your answer in my project. They all meet the conditions.

Actually when removing CM579 PNIO İ am able to login without errors. But when İ attach CM579 PNİO i again get that error.

Ok Faris,
one possible cause is the FW version of your CPU vs the CM579 not have one most recently CPU to try? For example one PM573-583-590?

What version of automation builder are you using?
Have you see the FW version of CPU?
If you are using AB 2.03 you can update the FW of the CPU directly by software

Unfortunately i dont have any other cpu.
İs it possible to update fw using automation builder v1.2?

No i dont know the fw version of my cpu and cm579 pnio

You can update cpu using SD the follow link more update files , do attention to the instruction for the update. Select the appropriate files and the version that you want to update.

By automation Buider you can read the FW version of the CM - PM unit

Hi Mussolin, İ did the firmware updation of pm and cm. But the problem occurs again. Updation process was like this, export files from plc through automation builder and write the same files to the plc through codesys. A friend told me to do like this. As i have automation builder v1.2.
İs the updation process wrong?

Hi Faris
Have you verified that the TB521 in your project is Eth model ?
The update process is automatically written on the SD card as per instructions that you find on the page of updates that I wrote in a previous message. You must insert the updated SD card into the slot with the CPU turned off and then power up the CPU. The process of reading the update by the CPU is automatic, because at power up the CPU reads the instructions from the SD card.
Only with Automation Builder 2.0 can the update be done directly from AB.
If when you remove the CM579 you can make your PLC work, you have to consider that the 579 could be broken. To understand any other possible causes of this malfunction, I should be able to see your components, but this is not possible.
I suggest you try to change either the cpu or the CM579, because I not have at the moment other suggestions to give you
