Sales and Delivery Release of Firmware V2.6 for TIM 3V-IE, TIM 3V-IE Advanced and TIM 4R-IE

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The new Firmware V2.6 for SINAUT communication modules TIM 3V-IE, TIM 3V-IE Advanced and TIM 4R-IE is released and available for download effective immediately. The modules are planned for release in the middle of January 2016 with the new V2.6 firmware.

1. Product description

Firmware V2.6 contains the following additional functions and changes:

  • Introduction of the "PathStatus" system object for displaying the path status from the perspective of the local TIM to a partner.

  • TIM 4R-IE only: The reception of time-of-day synchronization via the S7 multicast service is not enabled when a local ST7cc/SCADA is configured. This is intended to avoid receiving synchronization from two different time sources.

  • Correction of SSA-763427: Vulnerability in Communication Processor (CP) modules SIMATIC CP 343-1, TIM 3V-IE, TIM 4R-IE, and CP 443-1: http://www.siemens.com/cert/en/cert-security-advisories.htm.

Performing an upgrade using a free firmware update is generally expedient and is recommended.

Note: The firmware may be subject to export restrictions; download is only possible for registered users.
