  • Associated product(s)
The new version of the SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor V5.1 signaling and diagnostic software is now available for delivery.

Use of the SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor signaling and diagnostic software permits early detection of possible faults in SIMATIC IPCs. Comprehensive and flexible options for communicating IPC fault messages to operating personnel make it possible to avoid plant shutdowns or reduce downtimes.

  • Delivery of the software now available on USB flash drive
  • New purchase option and with a reduced price: Download in Online Software Delivery (OSD) (via Industry Mall)
  • Supports IPC647E 
  • Supports IPC847E

Provision of version 5.1 as support of additional, new hardware is planned.
This article will be updated with more information.

Additionally, packages for the hardware diagnostics are included in the installation under Linux (lm_sensors).
