Overview of new features and corrections for PCS 7 SIMOCODE pro Library V8.1 + HF2

  • An update from PCS 7 SIMOCODE pro V8.1 to PCS 7 SIMOCODE pro V8.1 + HF2 does not require a stop of the AS.



If SIMOCODE pro V PN device will be configured on an external Profinet interface (e.g.: behind CP 443-1) and not on the internal PLC Profinet interface then Module Fault output (ModF_Act) will be set at MMDiag block on a Warm Restart of the PLC and this means for the system that there is an error in device though device itself is fine.

This issue has been resolved and SIMOCODE pro V PN devices can be configured now on an external Profinet interface.


Steps to be done for upgrading existing PCS 7 projects:

  1. Import an instance of MMDiag block at the PCS 7 project to update all instances of the blocks.
  2. Compile and download the AS program with 'Changes only' no PLC restart is necessary.
  3. Set the value of parameter ‘Acc_Id’ at all instances of MMDiag block to ‘1’ if this bug fix applies to your system configuration (SIMOCODE pro V PN devices are configured on an external Profinet interface).


List of changed blocks:





Interface change (AS stop necessary)
