New feature with firmware V2.1:

  • Support of the system power supply PS 60W 24/48/60V DC HF.
    Thus, the complete RAM (data) can be kept remanent via the system power supply, additionally to the infeed of 60 W in the backplane bus for all S7-1500 CPUs.

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.

The following behavior has been revised with FW 2.1:

  • When monitoring a component online, the CPU does no longer STOP on account of area length errors.
  • When generating alarm text using the "Get_Alarm" block, the behavior regarding alarm texts has been improved.
  • 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.
  • The behavior shown when downloading data logs via the webserver of the CPU has been improved.
  • When performing "online monitoring" of blocks, the behavior that the TIA Portal freezes during scrolling if this block is called from several OBs having different priority, does no longer occur.
  • The start behavior of the OPC UA server, in particular with large data volumes, has been improved.

The following behavior has been corrected with FW 2.1:

  • The CPU does no longer go to STOP when copying large structures using the instruction "MOV_BLK_VARIANT".
  • The following sporadic message “Serious firmware exception error (non user-relevant system code: 16#00000000 16#10020000 16#00000000)“ does no longer occur if a large number of diagnostic events is reported via the AS-i.


Update V2.0.5 (6ES7515-2TM01-0AB0)

Dependencies with regard to STEP 7 and upwards compatibility:
Totally Integrated Automation Portal with STEP 7 Professional V14 or higher is required to configure this CPU firmware version.
Configurations with earlier TIA Portal STEP 7 Professional versions are compatible with later releases.

The following behavior has been revised with FW 2.0.5:

  • If, when online monitoring a block, the message (0604:000255) “Insufficient resources are available for the "Monitoring" function“ is output, you can still access the CPU as soon as sufficient resources are available.
  • The function of the SPLIT command in conjunction with structures comprising two or more sub-structures has been improved.
  • When using the DPWR_DAT or DPRD_DAT command in two OBs featuring different priorities, inconsistent data storages do no longer occur highly sporadically when using the command in the low-priority OB.
  • If the CPU is significantly loaded during Motion Control applications, a CPU STOP may occur due to an overflow of MC-Interpolator (OB92) respectively MC-Servo (OB91).
    During the subsequent CPU RUN, uncontrolled axis movements do no longer occur sporadically.


Update V2.0.3 (6ES7515-2TM01-0AB0)

Dependencies with regard to STEP 7 and upwards compatibility:
Totally Integrated Automation Portal with STEP 7 Professional V14 or higher is required to configure this CPU firmware version.
Configurations with earlier TIA Portal STEP 7 Professional versions are compatible with later releases.


The following behavior has been corrected with FW 2.0.3:

  • The following sporadic message: "Serious firmware exception error

    (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.

  • The following sporadic message "Serious firmware exception error
    (non user-relevant system code: 16#00400001 16#1002012E 16#00010206)“ does no longer occur if, during an active connection setup via T_CON using a CM1542-1/CP1543-1, the connection is already closed via T_DISCON.


The following behavior has been changed with FW 2.0.3:

  • The security behavior of the CPUs has been improved
  • The TIA Portal is no longer frozen if the memory card of the CPU is filled by the trace functions.
  • The behavior of the blocks “DPRD_DAT“ and “RD_REC“ in combination with optimized data blocks has been improved.
