Open GSD File

A GSD file is a text file that contains the characteristics and configuration options of the device that it represents.

These files are imported by the Configurator and later downloaded to the master device.

GSD files are often supplied with devices by the manufacturer, but can be downloaded from the Internet at

To understand the function of a GSD file, we must understand that it is Profibus, which is an industrial communications architecture that allows the interconnection of control, monitoring and SCADA equipment, from different manufacturers.

In this case, the GSD files are managed by the CX-PROFIBUS software and although they allow interoperability, they are structured by the manufacturer individually for each type of device, according to a fixed and standard format. GSD files only provide information about the device's features and configuration options. They do not provide a user interface, nor can they be used for connections themselves.
