Why, in the case of a networked SIMATIC S7, does the connection to the OP clear down when you call diagnostics functions with the PG or transfer blocks?
How many breakpoints can you insert when debugging a program?
Does PROFIBUS DP communication use connection resources?
Part number:

Configuration Notes:
PROFIBUS DP communication in a master-slave system does not use connection resources as long as data is exchanged exclusively via load and transfer commands. The number of your DP slaves therefore does not detract from your connection resources pool. Nor do you have to take the DP communication into account in the "Communication" tab (available in many SIMATIC S7-300 CPUs) of the CPU Properties dialog in HW Config when reserving resources.

In all other cases such as S7 Basic communication, S7 communication, S5-compatible communication etc., where data exchange is via communication blocks, you must have connection resources available.
