The SIMATIC S7-400 PROFINET-CPUs V6 and SIMATIC S7-400 CPU 417-4 DP V5 have been replaced by the innovated CPUs V7 which are already available since November 2015. The product phase-out phase for the replaced CPUs will start on April 1, 2016. These CPUs are, however, still available as spare parts.

After a transitional phase of approx. six months, the SIMATIC S7-400 PROFINET-CPUs V6 and SIMATIC S7-400 CPU 417-4 DP V5 will be declared phase-out products as per April 1, 2016. They can, however, still be ordered as usual as spare parts. The product continuation following the phase-out phase is scheduled for Oct. 1, 2016.

The following table shows the article numbers of the phase-out products and the substitution types side by side. The substitution types (CPUs V7) are spare parts compatible with their predecessors. User programs, which have been created for the phase-out products, can also be executed on the substitution types.
