2. Firmware update
Save the file in a temporary folder. The installation is started automatically when the .exe file is unzipped.
The firmware, consisting of
- the basic package TIM4RIE_V2.8.FWL for the TIM 4R-IE and
- the driver package, which must be loaded onto the TIM 4R-IE,
is then stored automatically in the folder ...\P7ST\TIMFW_VXW4R under the STEP 7 installation environment.
The basic package and the driver package of the TIM 4R-IE firmware must be loaded onto the TIM module with two different programs in the order described here:
1. Driver package
To load the driver package, the SINAUT Diagnostics and Service tool must be used.
No file or path information is necessary to load the driver package. The driver package is found automatically.
2. Basic package
To load the basic package, use the NCM Firmware Loader.
(Component of STEP 7: SIMATIC => STEP 7 => NCM S7 => Firmware Loader).
To load the basic package with the NCM Firmware Loader, you need to know the correct file name and file path (e.g.....\P7ST\TIMFW_VXW4R/TIM4RIE_V2.8.FWL) because this must be specified explicitly in the NCM Firmware Loader.
Please note that the basic package may only be loaded over the Ethernet interface of the TIM and the MAC address must be known (see sticker behind the front flap of the TIM). The S7 online interface of your programming device/PC must be set to "ISO Ind. Ethernet" in the "Set PG/PC interface" dialog.
To load the basic package, the TIM module must be put in download mode. For this you need to briefly press the Reset button of the TIM. The TIM will then begin to restart, which is indicated by the fact that the TIM switches on all LEDs for about 5 seconds. You must press the Reset button of the TIM again within this time and hold it until the RUN LED of the TIM starts to flash. The TIM is then in download mode. The download can now be started via the NCM Firmware Loader. As soon as the download is activated by the Firmware Loader, the STOP LED of the TIM starts to flash and flashes until the download procedure is complete. A voltage reset must be carried out after this.
For more detailed information, refer to the Readme file which is part of the extracted firmware.
