Allen Bradley AB_CSP Description
The AB_CSP driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over AB_CSP
Ethernet protocol. The FieldServer can emulate either a Server or Client.
The information that follows describes how to expand upon the factory defaults provided in the
configuration files included with the FieldServer.

Hardware Connections
Make sure the device IP_address is configured to be on the same IP network as the
FieldServer. Use a crossover cable if the FieldServer is connected directly to the PLC device.
Use a straight cable if the FieldServer is connected to a hub.
Configure the PLC according to manufacturer’s instructions

Configuring the FieldServer as a AB-CSP Client
For a detailed discussion on FieldServer configuration, please refer to the FieldServer
Configuration Manual. The information that follows describes how to expand upon the factory
defaults provided in the configuration files included with the FieldServer (See “.csv” sample files
provided with the FieldServer).
This section documents and describes the parameters necessary for configuring the FieldServer
to communicate with an AB-CSP Server.
4.1.
Data Arrays/Descriptors
The configuration file tells the FieldServer about its interfaces, and the routing of data
required. In order to enable the FieldServer for AB-CSP communications, the driver
independent FieldServer buffers need to be declared in the “Data Arrays” section, the
destination device addresses need to be declared in the “Client Side Nodes” section, and
the data required from the servers needs to be mapped in the “Client Side Map Descriptors”
section. Details on how to do this can be found below.
Note that in the tables, * indicates an optional parameter, with the bold legal value being the
default.
Section Title
Data_Arrays
Column Title

Data_Array_Name

Data_Array_Format
Data_Array_Length

Array can only take on one format.

larger than the data storage area
required by the Map Descriptors for
the data being placed in this array.

Appendix A. Troubleshooting
Appendix A.1. Continuous Map Descriptors
RS View has been known to crash if it tries to read a server mapping that is discontinuous.
e.g.
Server map 1: N21: 0-31
Server map 2: N21: 32-100
This will crash RS view as the AB_CSP will attempt to map N21: 0-100
If set up as
Server Map 1: N21: 0-100, no problems are experienced
