STEP 7 Lite available free of charge for downloading
STEP 7 Lite is the easy to use and intuitive programming software for the implementation of stand-alone solutions with SIMATIC S7-300, SIMATIC C7, ET 200S (IM 151/CPU and IM 151/CPU FO) and ET 200X (BM 147/CPU).
STEP 7 Lite was designed such that it it can be learned in a very short time and will support the user in every phase of the project with optimal operability. Projects created with STEP 7 Lite can be further processed with STEP 7 or STEP 7 Professional at a later stage.
STEP 7 Lite includes convenient functions for every phase of an automation project:
- Configuration and parameterization of the hardware
- Testing, commissioning and maintenance
- Operation and diagnostics functions
All functions are continuously supported by a powerful multi-level online help system.
Communication between automation systems as well as the use of CP and FM modules are not supported by STEP 7 Lite. STEP 7 or STEP 7 Professional are required for this purpose.
The following optional package is available for STEP 7 Lite:
TeleService can be used for remote maintenance of SIMATIC S7 or C7 automation systems with a PG or PC via a telephone or radio link. The full functionality of STEP 7 and the engineering tools is available in this case, comparable with a local MPI connection. TeleService increases the effective availability of systems and machines. Due to the accessibility with TeleService, technical services (e.g. maintenance, update services or fault analyses) can be performed cost effectively from a central service center.
Other SIMATIC software packages, e.g. engineering tools, cannot be used with STEP 7 Lite.
STEP 7 Lite is available as a software package for PC installation. A PC adapter, CP 5511, CP 5512 or CP 5611 are required in this case.
