Configuration of S5 adapter module in an S7-400, in which 6 IMs are already configured.
If 6 S7 IMs (IM460-x) are already slotted in a central controller, you cannot configure another adapter module IM463-2. If you attempt to, you get the message that the maximum number of IMs (6) is already slotted.
The adapter module IM463-2, however, is not to be considered as S7-IM.
