Due to the discontinuation of supply of certain electronic components, the PROFINET CP 1616 module with order no. 6GK1 161-6AA01 has been declared a mature product.
End of production is planned for March31, 2012. After this date the PROFINET CP 1616 module with order no. 6GK1 161-6AA01 will only be available on a spare part basis at a 25% higher purchase price.
We recommend to use the CP 1616 with order no. 6GK1 161-6AA02 instead.
This module differs from the mature product only in the Flash memory it uses and can therefore be employed as 100% compatible replacement for all applications using a software version higher than or equal to V2.3.2.
The CP 1616 with order no.6GK1 161-6AA02 cannot be used with software versions lower than or equal to V2.3.1.
In this case please update the software you use.
If this is not possible, please make use of the possibility of last-time purchases to ensure your future requirements.
The current software version V2.5.2 is available free of charge from the Internet at: http://www.siemens.de/simatic-net/dk16xx
