This article describes what additional configuration files are needed when installing the Anybus Communicator.
Do I need any additional configuration files to install the Communicator on the network?
For DeviceNet, ControlNet, EtherNet/IP and CANopen an EDS-file (Electronic Datasheet) is needed, for PROFIBUS and PROFINET a GSD file is needed and for other networks similar configuration files may be needed. These files needs to be imported in the PLC/Networking commissioning tool used by the system integrator. These files are downloadable from HMS website under the support section for your specific Anybus Communicator version.
