    I have a KTP700 Profibus HMI but I also have a PLC that is Profinet. I have been trying to find ways to essentially get the HMI and PLC talking to each other and get my program running. One of the ways I am approaching this is using a netLINK NL 51N-DPL, which essentially Integrates a single DP-Slave into PROFINET network. This would work if I had the GSD files for the HMI. However I am having great difficulties finding a GSD file, even if there is such a thing.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to approach this? One of the main issues is I am very limited for space, so the netLINK PROXY is the perfect size.

    Thanks in advance.
