|ET / KS 98 and ET / KS 98plus
Testing the interface
If problems arise during communication between the Engineering Tool and the KS 98, it is
best to check the interface first.
This can be done best with an "empty" engineering that contains no function blocks, and is generated in the ET / KS 98
with the menu item "File - New". Subsequently, the empty engineering is transmitted by means of the menu item "File -
Project PC -> KS98 - Engineering". The transmission is completed within a few seconds, and if successful, it is
confirmed by the message "No fault found...".
Should a problem arise during transmission, the cable between the devices should be checked first, followed by the
interface settings, the selected COM port, transmission speed, and the address.
Of course, this test also works with the Simulation Tool SIM / KS 98.
