The S7-1200 tool enables you to specify the IP address of one or several S7-1200 CPUs without using the STEP 7 Basic software.
This tool is particularly useful for mass filling; if, for example, you download a project by means of a memory card to multiple CPUs in a network and then have to change the IP address for each CPU.
Setting the PG/PC interface
||Click the "PG/PC Interface" button.
- Select the access point below for the application: "S7IPTool".
- For "Interface Parameter Assignment Used:" you select "TCP/IP" and the network card you are using. You achieve the best results with the "TCP/IP(Auto)" for automatic configuration of the network card you are using.
- Apply the settings with "OK".
Manual assignment of an IP address for your S7-1200
||Double-click the "Update accessible devices" button to update the list of accessible nodes.
||The S7-1200 tool displays the MAC address of CPUs without an assigned IP address.
- Select the CPU to be configured from the list of accessible devices.
- Click the "Flash LED lights" button to flash the status LEDs of the CPU selected.
||Click the "Stop CPU" button to put the CPU into STOP mode.
- Specify the IP address, subnet mask and gateway address for the CPU selected.
- Then click the "Set" button.
If you enable the "Set as Default" option, the current settings are saved as "Default" settings when you click the "Set" button.
- Click the "Use Defaults" button to load the saved "Default" settings.
||Click the "Start CPU" button to put the CPU into RUN mode.
||Mark the network card folder in the tree view.|
A table is displayed listing all the connected S7-1200 CPUs.
||Click the "Export..." button to generate a CSV file with the current network settings of all the connected S7-1200 CPUs.|
Save this file on your computer.
||Open the exported CSV file with Notepad.|
Each line in the CSV file contains a MAC address, IP address, subnet mask and gateway address for each separate S7-1200 CPU.
You can change the network settings of each CPU as required. You must not change the MAC address.
You can use the "#" character to insert comments in the CSV file.
||Click the "Import..." button and select the modified CSV file from Step 3.
||Your changes are shown in the Network Mapping table .|
Click the "Update" button to apply the new network settings of all the CPUs.
- A green circle next to the S7-1200 CPU indicates that the update has been successful.
- A red circle indicates that the update has failed.
- A yellow circle indicates that the S7-1200 CPU is in the process of being updated.
||Click the "Fault Capture" button to read out system information from the selected S7-1200 CPU. This information can be forwarded to Siemens for analysis.
||Click the "Reset To Factory Defaults" button to reset the selected S7-1200 CPU back to its original factory settings. All the data including the IP address will be deleted.
