How should the instance name be configured for each PMEPXM0100 in a hot standby setup with an M580 PLC?


04 July 2023

In the Control Expert DTM configuration, two PXM0100s need to be defined for a HSBY system. So each should have an instance name. M58A_{slot}_PXM0100 for local rack A and M58B_{slot}_PXM0100 for local rack B. In Prosoft Configurator, there needs to be only one definition of a PXM0100 HSBY master. The instance name for this should be M580_{slot}_PXM0100. The configuration can be downloaded to both PXM0100s.
