Migration Guide: SIMATIC S7-300/400 to SIMATIC S7-1500
The new controller generation SIMATIC S7-1500 has an up-to-date system architecture and, together with TIA Portal, offers new and efficient programming and configuration options. To be able to use these advantages, it is important that users who are currently using SIMATIC S7-300/S7-400 automation systems and plan to migrate to the new SIMATIC controller generation SIMATIC S7-1500, develop a detailed comprehensive concept for planning and implementing the pending migration. This requires thorough clarification in the run-up to migration.
The objective of this document is to support plant migration to a modern controller generation and cover the most important questions that may arise in this context. This document contains recommendations and notes for this migration.
This document covers the following key issues relating to plant migration from S7-300/S7-400 to S7-1500:
- Planning a plant migration
- System architecture S7-300/S7-400 and S7-1500
- Hardware migration
- Software conversion
- Overview of the most important recommendations
- Comparison of SIMATIC S7-300/S7-400 and S7-500 components
