Hardware configuration

The hardware configuration allows the parametrizing of modules, the allocation of addresses and the configuration of a PROFIBUS. By clicking on the module in the configuration, a dialogue opens, which allows to setup the module parameters. In the detail window of the module or CPU, executed changes are marked clearly, in order to avoid unintentional changes before saving.

Besides the original Siemens PROFIBUS components, our hardware catalogue contains PROFIBUS components from other manufacturers, which are compatible to Siemens. The hardware catalogue can be extended with files in GSD-format. The hardware configuration of existing Step®7 projects can be read and edited. Besides offline-creation of hardware configurations, it is also possible to read and edit existing configurations from a PLC. For quick debugging, module diagnostic functions are integrated. The hardware catalogue is updated constantly for the latest modules. These updates are freely available via internet.
