KL1501 - Terminal configuration

The terminal can be configured and parameterized via the internal register structure. Each terminal channel is mapped in the Bus Coupler. Mapping of the terminal data in the Bus Coupler memory may differ, depending on the Bus Coupler type and the set mapping configuration (e.g. Motorola/Intel format, word alignment etc.).

In contrast to analog input and output terminals, in the KL1501 the control byte and the status byte are always mapped, irrespective of the fieldbus system used.

BK2000 Lightbus Coupler

In the BK2000 Lightbus Coupler, the control/status byte is always mapped, in addition to the data bytes. This is always located in the low byte at the offset address of the terminal channel.

BK3000 Profibus Coupler

In the BK3000 Profibus Coupler, the KL1501 is automatically mapped with 5 bytes of input data and 5 bytes of output data.

BK4000 Interbus Coupler

By default, the BK4000 Interbus Coupler maps the KL1501 with 5 bytes of input data and 5 bytes of output data.

Other Bus Couplers and further information

Further information about the mapping configuration of Bus Couplers can be found in the Appendix of the respective Bus Coupler manual under Master configuration.

The chapter on Mapping in the Bus Coupler contains an overview of possible mapping configurations, depending on the configurable parameters.

Parameterization with the KS2000 software

The KS2000 configuration software can be used for parameterizations via the serial interface of the Bus Coupler, independent of the fieldbus system.
