The new firmware version V2.3 for the SINAUT communication modules TIM 3V-IE and TIM 3V-IE Advanced is now available for download. A detailed description is available in entry ID 53469054. A firmware upgrade of existing TIM modules of the mentioned type is required to use the functional enhancements / product improvements.
Firmware update process:
Save the zip file to a temporary folder on your PC. Unzip the file and start Setup.exe in the unzipped file.
The firmware consisting of
- the basic package TIM3VIES_V2.3.0.FWL for TIM 3V-IE,
- the basic package TIM3VIEA_V2.3.FWL for TIM 3V-IE Advanced and
- the driver package that must be downloaded to the TIM 3V-IE variants,
is automatically saved in the folder ...\P7ST\TIMFW_VXW below the STEP7 installation environment.
Download the basic and driver package of the TIM 3V-IE and TIM 4R-IE firmware with two different programs to the TIM module in the order described below:
1. Driver package
Use the SINAUT diagnostic and service tool to download the driver package.
You do not need to specify a file or path for downloading the driver package. The driver package is detected automatically.
2. Basic package
Use the NCM firmware loader to download the basic package.
(part of STEP 7: SIMATIC --> STEP 7 --> NCM S7 --> Firmware Loader).
To download the basic package with the NCM firmware loader you need to know the correct file name and the file path (e.g....\P7ST\TIMFW_VXW/TIM3VIES_V2.3.0.FWL), because you must explicitly enter this information in the NCM firmware loader.
Detailed information is available in the Readme file that is part of the unzipped firmware.
