Highlights of the S7-1500 Software Controller

  • Software Controller for implementing the functions of a SIMATIC S7-1500 Controller on a SIMATIC IPC
  • Use as a PC-based controller in machines with distributed I/O via PROFINET and PROFIBUS
  • Execution of functions and algorithms implemented with high-level languages  under Windows (C/C++, C#, VB) and locally in the CPU 1507S (C/C++)
  • Integrated Motion Control functionality
  • Integrated web server for diagnostics with the option of creating user-defined web pages
  • OPC UA server (data access) and client as runtime option for easy connection of the software controller to Windows applications or third-party devices/systems
  • Improved security with know-how, copy and communications protection
  • Improved availability by decoupling of Windows
  • Windows-independent, fast startup
  • Operation with Windows 10 (64-bit) on SIMATIC IPC

Note for PCS 7 users

The following PCS 7 products include SIMATIC WinAC RTX  2010 and are thus also affected by this phase-out declaration:

 ProductArticle number 
 6ES7 650-4Bxx0-3xxx (all variants)
 SIMATIC PDM Maintenance Station  6ES7650-0RJ03-0YX0

We recommend that all users of SIMATIC PCS 7 AS RTX check a migration to the new entry-level system AS 410E.

Detailed information on AS 410E is provided in the catalog ST PCS 7 for PCS 7 V9.0.

AS RTX will be substituted in a successor version for SIMATIC PDM MS V3.0  (6ES7650-0RJ03-0YX0).
