Adding Inline modules by means of AXC F IL ADAPT

Available from 2019.0 LTS with AXC F 2152, and from 2020.6 with AXC F 3152

You can run an Inline station at a PLCnext Control. To do so, you need the right-alignable AXC F IL ADAPT Inline adapter terminal (item no. 1020304). For mounting and installation at the controller see the AXC F IL ADAPT data sheet.

To configure the Inline station, proceed as follows.

Implementing the AXC F IL ADAPT in a PLCnext Engineer project

Selecting the Inline adapter terminal

  • Double-click the controller node in the PLANT area.

The controller editor group opens.

  • Select the Settings editor.
  • Select the Hardware extensions view.
  • From the Interbus drop-down list, select AXC F IL ADAPT (1020304).

The AXC F IL ADAPT / AXC F XT IB (x) node is now displayed in the PLANT area.


Adding the Inline library

All of the physical and logical components of your application are mapped in the form of a hierarchical tree structure in the PLANT area.

To add Inline modules, you first need to insert the Inline library within the COMPONENTS area:

  • In the COMPONENTS area, open the Libraries (x) section.
  • Right-click Libraries (x).
  • From the context menu, select Add Library....
  • In the file explorer that opens, select the Inline library.
  • Click the Open button.

The Inline library is now displayed in the Libraries (x) section in the COMPONENTS area. You can now use the role picker to add the Inline modules contained in the library to your application.

Role picker: Adding Inline modules

To add the Inline modules, proceed as follows:

  • In the PLANT area, double-click the AXC F IL ADAPT / AXC F XT IB (x) node.

The editor group for the AXC F IL ADAPT / AXC F XT IB (x) Inline adapter terminal opens.

  • Select the Device List editor.
  • Select Select type here in the first row of the Device List editor.

The role picker opens. Only those elements from the COMPONENTS area that you can actually use are displayed in the role picker.

  • Select the relevant Inline module in the role picker.

The Inline module is added and mapped under the AXC F IL ADAPT / AXC F XT IB (x) node in the PLANT area.

  • Proceed as described above to add more Inline modules.
