The C-PLUG is a removable medium that supports rapid device change without having to configure the replacement device if there is a fault. All you do is remove the C-PLUG from the failed device and insert it in the replacement device. The replacement device then starts up automatically with the same configuration as the failed device.

In the case of some S7 CP modules, such as the CP 443-1 Advanced, the C-PLUG is part of the delivery package and is required for the complete scope of functions of the components concerned
