SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional V15.1 Upgrade V11..V14 to V15.1 or V11/2010..V14/2017 to V15.1/2017 or 2006..2010 to V15.1/2017 Combo floating license, engineering software in TIA Portal, also valid for upgrading V11 single licenses, software and documentation on DVD, key on USB stick, class A, 6 languages: GE,EN,IT,FR,ES,ZN, executable under Windows 7 (64Bit), Windows 10 (64 Bit), Windows Server 2012/16 (64), for configuration of SIMATIC S7-1200/1500, SIMATIC S7-300/400/WinAC, SIMATIC Basic Panels
SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional V15.1 is the engineering system for the S7-1200, S7-1500, S7-300, and S7-400 SIMATIC controllers, WinAC and software controllers.
STEP 7 V15.1 is based on the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) central engineering framework which offers users a uniform, efficient and intuitive solution to all automation tasks.
SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional V15.1 is the easy-to-use, integrated engineering system for the current SIMATIC S7-1200, S7-1500, S7-300 and S7-400 controllers, WinAC, software controllers, and ET 200 CPU. PLCSIM for simulation of S7-1200/1500 CPU and WinCC Basic for configuration of Basic Panels are included in the scope of delivery.
STEP 7 V15.1 thus provides support in all phases of the automation project:
With its multifaceted innovations, the SIMATIC S7-1500 controller from the SIMATIC S7 controller family sets new standards for maximum productivity. The SIMATIC S7-1500 is perfectly integrated into SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional V15.1 for maximum engineering efficiency. With its unique system performance and PROFINET as the standard interface, the SIMATIC S7-1500 is the new benchmark for performance.
STEP 7 Professional V15.1 provides powerful programming editors with optimized compilers for programming the S7 controllers.
For all controllers:
Additionally for SIMATIC S7-1500, S7-300, S7-400, WinAC and Software Controllers:
The Trace Editor makes it possible to record signals in chronological order from the user program of an S7-1200 or S7-1500 CPU. The graphical evaluation of the signals simplifies the commissioning of drives, for example, and helps search for sporadic errors in the application or user program.
Motion control applications with SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional V15.1 and S7-1500 become child's play, even for beginners. The intuitive graphical user interfaces of the technology objects in STEP 7 Professional V15.1 provide optimal support for the configuring and commissioning of analog and PROFIdrive-capable drives, as well as for troubleshooting. The instructions for controlling the motion sequence are standardized according to PLCopen Motion Control. The following functions are supported in STEP 7 Professional V15.1:
The system has a comprehensive library concept for the reuse and simple standardization of frequently used program sections.
Elements such as blocks, tags, alarms, HMI graphics, graphic objects, individual modules or entire stations can be stored along with their parameter assignment in local or global libraries. This means they are available for further programming tasks.
STEP 7 Professional V15.1 features password-based know-how protection and write protection against unauthorized reading and changing of program block content.
Copy protection offers greater protection against unauthorized copying of program blocks. These blocks can be linked to the serial number of a memory card so that the block can only run if the configured memory card is inserted into the CPU.
In addition, multiple user groups with different access rights can be assigned to the controller by means of four different authorization levels.
Improved manipulation protection offers a greater degree of security against unauthorized changes to the data transferred between STEP 7 and the controller.
A migration tool integrated in SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional V15.1 provides support in switching from the S7-300/S7-400 to the S7-1500 controller and converts the program code automatically. Program code that cannot be converted automatically is logged and can be adapted manually. STEP 7 V12 SP1 projects can continue to be used with STEP 7 Professional V15.1 in compatibility mode.
Several individuals frequently work on the same project simultaneously, particularly during the engineering phase of an automation task. With TIA Portal V15.1 and the PLC proxy function it is possible to develop control and visualization tasks in parallel. Using a PLC proxy, data to be visualized can be imported from a STEP 7 (TIA Portal) or STEP 7 V5.4 SP3 project (or higher) into the WinCC V15.1 visualization project in order to implement the visualization there. Furthermore, STEP 7 Professional V15.1 and S7-1500 support online functions for commissioning which can be used by multiple users simultaneously.
The TIA Portal Multiuser Engineering option allows several users to work on the same project simultaneously. This results in a significant reduction in configuration times, and projects can be commissioned faster.
