New features with firmware V2.1 during programming:

  • Via the instruction "GetSMCInfo", you can read out the card size, the memory space which is already occupied on the memory card, and the number of write/delete processes performed on the card in the user program.
  • In order to be able to split up or further process control words and status words, elementary data types can be converted into a bit-array using the "SCATTER" instruction and a bit-array converted into an elementary data type, such as WORD, using the "GATHER" instruction.


The following behavior has been changed with FW 2.1:

  • In the event of a peripheral access error, direct peripheral accesses, which are interconnected as input parameters to components, have no longer the result that the component is no longer run through. Instead of this, the system uses the replacement value of the signal in the component.

  • With the "Get_Alarm" block, the status message "W#16#8003 – the parameter Lcid is invalid or a language selected at the parameter Lcid is not loaded" is no longer output if the "InfoText" parameter is empty with the "Alarm_Data" data type.
  • The behavior of the "Get_Alarm" has been improved regarding the call from several OB priorities.
  • The behavior of the "STP" instruction, when simultaneously performing "online monitoring" via the TIA Portal, has been improved.

    (non user-relevant system code: 16#400001 16#10020074 16#4a6c24d0)“ does no longer occur if a ProcessEvent OB is triggered by various ProcessEvents having different priorities, such that it interrupts itself.

  • The following sporadic message "Serious firmware exception error
    (non user-relevant system code: 16#400001 16#10020011 16#468a6be8)“ does no longer occur
    if the “DataLogWrite“ block is used in the user program.

Update V1.8.2 (6ES7512-1CK00-0AB0)

The following behavior has been changed with FW 1.8.2:

  • When you download to CPU 1517(F) or CPU 1518(F) the following error message no longer occurs due to structural descriptions of data structures: "There is not enough code or data memory space on the CPU for this amount of data – Insufficient work memory for compilation", although sufficient loading and memory are available.
  • On the Web server of the CPU, the correct text for "Retentive memory" is displayed in Chinese under the "Memory" tab.

The following behavior has been corrected with FW 1.8.2:

  • The following message no longer occurs sometimes with routing to SINAMICS drives through the S7-1500 CPUs: "Temporary CPU error"
  • The following sporadic message no longer occurs in the CPU-CPU communication over PROFIBUS when the remote communication partner is a passive PROFIBUS station: "Serious firmware exception error (non user-relevant system code: f5 10020015 21)“
  • When you download program changes to the PLC, the following highly sporadic message no longer occurs: "Serious firmware exception error (non user-relevant system code: 16#44440000 16#10020000 16#00000000)“
Security information
In order to protect technical infrastructures, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art IT security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions constitute one element of such a concept. For more information about cyber security, please visit
