Upgrade of the SIMATIC NET PC software by the following new functionalities:

a) New product SOFTNET-IE S7 Extended

The SOFTNET-IE S7 Extended product expands scaling based on the existing product SOFTNET-IE S7. This enables communication via the S7 protocol with up to 255 stations (S7-300 and S7-400 stations) or by using the S7opt protocol with up to 512 stations (S7-1200 (V4.0 and higher) and S7-1500 stations). Please note that the configuration with STEP7 is limited to 207 connections per application (e.g. OPC Server) but that up to 512 connections are available with COML-S7.

b) Faster connection monitoring for HARDNET-IE S7 REDCONNECT
As of SIMATIC NET DVD V13 the CP 1623 was adapted to the firmware of the CP 1628. This means "fast H-Alive" for faster connection monitoring for HARDNET-IE S7 REDCONNECT is now also possible with CP 1623. More specific monitoring times are available in the quantity framework document (Entry: http://support.automation.siemens.com/WW/view/en/15227599)

c) Alarm & Condition for S7-1500
Alarm & Condition is now supported for the S7OPT OPC UA server. This means you have the option to configure up to 1000 program alarms for Industrial Ethernet.

d) Support of UserDefinedTypes and multi-instance DBs
UDTs and multi-instance DBs are supported with access to optimized DBs for S7-1200 (V4.0 and higher) and S7-1500 stations.

e) Configuration change to STEP7 Professional V14
STEP7 Professional V14 is included in the delivery as a configuration tool and can be used in two ways:

  • For configuring the PC CPs (without additional license)

  • For configuring all modules (for two weeks as part of the TRIAL license)

f) Support of VMware vSphere ESXi V6.0
You can find additional information in the Readme.

g) Support of VMware Workstation V12.5
for test and simulation, may not be used in productive operation

f) Support of Microsoft Hyper-V
You can find additional information in the Readme.

Please note:
The products SOFTNET-PB S7 V14, SOFTNET-PB DP V14 and SOFTNET-PB DP slave V14 have not been approved for the modules CP 5611 A2 and CP 5621. The modules CP 5612, CP 5622 and CP 5711 are released.

The SOFTNET PROFIBUS products V8.1 and V8.2 are still released and available for delivery with the existing scope of functions. There is currently no substitution with V14.

The SOFTNET-IE S7 PG product has been discontinued. All functions are covered by the less expensive product SOFTNET-IE S7 Lean.
