New Firmware Version V1.1 for SIMATIC S7-1500 CPUs
Part number:
Summary Internet document

In addition to several functional expansions, the new CPU firmware V1.1 implements the mechanisms for a MODBUS TCP (Server/Client) on a SIMATIC S7-1500 controller.

Existing SIMATIC S7-1500 controllers in the field can be updated to the new CPU firmware V1.1 without any restrictions. The necessary files including a description of the firmware update process are available on the Service&Support pages.

  Compatibility between CPU firmware and display firmware:

 
It is possible to use a CPU with firmware version V1.0 and a display with firmware version V1.1 together and it is possible to use a CPU with firmware version V1.1 and a display with firmware version V1.0 together.

 

New Features of the CPUs:

To be able to use the new functionalities a configuration in the TIA Portal with STEP 7 Professional V12 SP1 and higher is required (entry ID 76276623).   

With firmware version 1.1 the SIMATIC S7-1500 CPU provides the following new functionalities in addition to the existing product features:

Programming in STEP 7 V12 SP1:  

  • Activation and deactivation of passwords via SFC in the application program (ENDIS_PW)
  • Interrogation of the alarm status via the application program (Get_AlarmState)
  • Process interrupts can be coupled to an event or decoupled from an event (ATTACH/DETACH)
  • Read information of an IO device (GetStationInfo)

Communication:

  • Support of MODBUS TCP communication with the software blocks MB_CLIENT and  MB_SERVER

Firmware update:

  • Firmware update via web-server
  • After the firmware update the application program, the parameterization of the hardware, recipes and archives, as well as the data declared "retentive", will be retained on the memory card of the CPU 

Display:

  • Enhanced performance with the operator input
  • The "Links Key" can be used to fade in Tooltips at many places
  • Additional diagnostic information with respect to the SIMATIC Memory Card (no card inserted, FW update card is inserted, error indication if the CPU project is not loaded)
  • Indication on the display that a download from the TIA Portal is in process
  • When you press the "ESC" button for more than 3 secs. there will be an automatic jump to the starting page. 

Spare part replacement: 

If a CPU with firmware V1.0 is replaced by a CPU with firmware V1.1, the STEP 7 project need not be changed. It is also not necessary to upgrade the STEP 7 software version.
