Delivery release STEP 7 Safety Basic / Advanced V15.1

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Delivery release for SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety Basic / Advanced V15.1, the high-performance add-on package for programming of fail-safe S7 controllers for the Totally Integrated Automation Portal V15.1.

SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety V15.1 is now available. SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety V15.1 replaces the direct predecessor version SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety V15 as an independent product and full version. The standard delivery of SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety V15 ends with the availability of SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety V15.1.

SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety V15 can be requested as a free download to the previously delivered version V15.1 via the Internet from the download pages of SIMATIC Customer Support (entry ID 109752230).

The license acquired for the V15.1 is valid for all older TIA Portal versions.


If you need the V15.0 volume, the TRIAL Version of V15.1 (MLFB: 6ES7833-1FA15-0YA8) contains the V15.0 DVD.


The TIA Portal add-on package SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety Basic / Advanced convinces with numerous new engineering features and supports the extended portfolio of S7-1500F and S7-1200F.

  • STEP 7 Safety Basic V15.1 is the add-on package for parameter assignment and programming of the fail-safe S7-1200.
  • STEP 7 Safety Advanced V15.1 is the add-on package for all fail-safe TIA SIMATIC controller classes (S7-1500, S7-1200, S7-1500 Software Controller, S7-300, S7-400, WinAC).


You can find additional information for the TIA Portal software in the following entry:

Highlights


  • New fail-safe CPU-CPU communication "Flexible F-Link"

With STEP 7 Safety V15.1, a new fail-safe CPU-CPU communication "Flexible F-Link" is available for the fail-safe S7-1200 and S7-1500 CPUs. This enables fail-safe data to be easily exchanged between two fail-safe CPUs as a fail-safe array using standard communication mechanisms.

Flexible F-Link offers several advantages for exchanging fail-safe data:

  • Grouping of the fail-safe data to be transferred into F-conformant PLC data types (UDTs)
  • Up to 100 bytes of fail-safe data per UDT
  • Support of fail-safe data types
  • Easy parameter assignment and automatic generation of fail-safe communication DBs
  • Transfer of fail-safe data with standard communication blocks even across network boundaries
  • F-runtime group communication for F-CPUs 1200/1500
  • System-integrated and worldwide sufficiently unique F-Communication UUID
  • Separate F-communication address signature for easy recognition of changes of the F-communication UUID



  • F-OB preprocessing and postprocessing
To simplify configuring and for easy-to-follow timing, especially in the context of fail-safe communication using Flexible F-Link, STEP 7 Safety Version V15.1 provides the option of placing standard blocks around the F-runtime groups for the purpose of preprocessing and postprocessing process values.


  • Variable communication ID (DP_DP_ID)
Starting in Version V15.1, STEP 7 Safety provides the option of assigning variables instead of constants to the communication IDs (DP_DP_IDs) needed for the SENDDP and RCVDP blocks. This allows use of safety programs with the same collective F-signature in systems with a variety of identical I-devices.  The variable communication ID thus enables simplified commissioning, maintenance and project management.

Notice: If variable communication IDs (DP_DP_ID) are used, the user must ensure by the application that the communication IDs are always unique throughout the network.


  • New openness functionalities
  • Reading/configuring of I-parameters of the ET 200SP F-IOs
  • Consistent station upload
  • HW/SW comparison (offline/offline)
  • Import/export of consistent F-blocks and F-conformant PLC data types (UDT)


  • Simulation mode for SENDDP / RCVDP during S7-PLCSIM operation


  • Achievable safety class SIL3 (Safety Integrity Level) according to IEC 61508:2010 / PL e (Performance Level) according to ISO 13849-1:2015



Investment protection

Starting from STEP 7 Safety V13 SP1, projects can be upgraded directly to STEP 7 Safety V15.1.

Projects from older versions of STEP 7 Safety (V11 to V13) are updated based on STEP 7 Safety Advanced V13 SP1 or V13 SP2 (most recent update recommended).

You can download Service Pack 2 for SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety Basic / Advanced V13 under the following entry ID:


Important note:
TIA Portal project versions V13 SP1 to V15 are upgraded with TIA Portal V15.1 to project version V15.1. If you need to edit a TIA Portal project version V13 SP1 to V15, we recommend an additional installation of the corresponding software for TIA Portal V15.1. The license purchased for V15.1 is also valid for all older TIA Portal versions.


S7 Distributed Safety V5.4 SP5 projects can be migrated to STEP 7 Safety Advanced V15.1 by migrating the program code and hardware configuration.



System requirements and compatibility with other SIMATIC products

  • STEP 7 Safety Advanced V15.1 requires STEP 7 Professional V15.1 (109758795)
  • STEP 7 Safety Basic V15.1 requires at least STEP 7 Basic V15.1 (109758795)


Refer to STEP 7 Professional V15.1 for the supported operating systems and hardware requirements. The compatibility with other SIMATIC products is the same as for STEP 7 Basic / Professional V15.1.
