SIMATIC MV420 / MV440 firmware update version 7.0.2
Firmware version 7.0.2 is the successor to firmware version 7.0.1. The firmware is part of the SIMATIC MV440 and SIMATIC MV420 product series.
The new functions/revisions of firmware version 7.0.2 compared to version 7.0.1 are:
|Functional range||Brief description|
|Starting the user interface as a browser plug-in||Start the user interface from your browser by entering the IP address of the device in the address line. |
For browsers that support the Java plug-in, the start procedure can be executed directly via the "Setup" menu command.
|Starting the user interface as an application – for browsers without plug-in|| Start the user interface from your browser by entering the IP address of the device in the address line. |
For browsers that no longer support the Java plug-in, execute the start procedure via the "Launch setup with WebStart" link.
The code types of EAN8, EAN13 and UPC-A codes have been enhanced in terms of their decoding performance.
|Transmission of the trigger status via TCP/IP and RS232||The status of the trigger input is transmitted each time the MGST command is called. (Equates to the former method of calling up the status using the formatting instruction “%b” in the result string). |
Doing so saves on calls and therefore speeds up program execution.
|Changing signal behavior for "READ", "MATCH" and "N_OK" via TCP/IP and RS232|
Following activation, the "READ", "MATCH" and "N_OK" signals remain activated until such time as the reader receives a new trigger signal.
