S7-1500R/H AddIn

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
To connect a PROFINET device to a redundant system S7-1500R/H/HF, it is necessary to set the correct watchdog time for each device. The S7-1500R/H Add-In, as a context menu function for each PN IO device connected to an R/H/HF system, calculates the correct factor and updates it in the settings.

The S7-1500R/H Add-In expands the shortcut menu of the project tree in the TIA Portal and facilitates the automatic configuration of the watchdog factor on PN IO devices of the selected R/H/HF systems, either as a simple progress dialog or as a list display.
