Bug Fixes

  1. Code has been optimized to prevent WinCC runtime from crash during reading Logbook events using "Read data" button

  2. Problem with Trend view in Web Client has been fixed.

  3. During group error/warning there will be message text shown for coming events but not for going events, this issue has been solved.

  4. Module Fault and Rack Fault diagnostics has been fixed in line with OB_DIAG1_PN S2 redundancy handling.

  5. Incorrect MODE value reporting during device disconnection at MMDiag, MMOprtn blocks is fixed.

  6. OB_DIAG1.QRACK false error report on device unavailability behind Y-link and Rack fault outgoing event was corrected.

  7. Device failure is reported when PORT diagnostic is activated and one end of the ring network is removed from a MRP configuration with SCALANCE.

  8. OB_DIAG1 not reporting QRACKF high, when Y-Link (connected to CPU) is turned OFF.

  9. Read data button is enabled even if the OS permission disabled when the faceplate is open, this issue has been fixed at MMOprtn and MMLog faceplates.

  10. SUBN1ERR & SUBN2ERR toggles in OB_DIAG1 for the slaves connected to communication processor (CP443-5) in standard master system

  11. Unit of Consumed energy parameter at MMStat Standard faceplate is not grayed out when Voltage module is not available; this issue is fixed at MMStat faceplates.

  12. In MMMeas faceplates Analog module 2 sensor 2 will be visible even though the Analog module 2 is not configured

  13. OB_DIAG1.QRACKF shows false error behind communication processor CP443-5 in standard master system

  14. OB_DIAG & MMDiag block not behaving as expected on Y-Link with communication processor CP443-5 card, this behavior is now corrected.

  15. Date column should not come in case of Profibus in Logbook faceplates.
