Limiting Conditions of Use for TIM3/TIM4 in Conjunction with CPUs317/318 and CPU315-2 PN/DP

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)


TIM3 and TIM4 modules cannot be employed in a type 300 rack together with CPUs 317/318 or the new CPU 315-2 PN/DP (6ES7 315-2EG10-0AB0, delivery release 11/2004). There is no workaround for TIM3 modules. At present, they cannot be used together with the CPUs317/318 or the CPU 315-2 PN/DP. For TIM4 modules, on the other hand, the communication can be channeled via the MPI interface (TIM4 in "stand-alone" solution).

As long as the above problem has not been solved, a CPU317/318 or a CPU 315-2 PN/DP can only be operated together with a TIM4 module communicating with the CPU via its MPI interface.

We are working on a solution to the problem and shall inform you by way of a separate information bulletin when the restrictions have been lifted.

Important:

The limiting conditions of use with respect to the CPU 315 are only applicable to the above type. All previously shipped CPU 315 (6ES7 315-1AF01-0AB0 and later), CPU 315-2 DP (6ES7 315-2AF01-0AB0 and later), as well as CPU 315F-2 DP (6ES7 315-6FF00-0AB0 and later) are not affected by the problem.


All presently available TIMs are affected. These are:

The problem described above can be identified in the SINAUT connection configuration. Here, the stations with a CPU317/318 or a CPU 315-2 PN/DP will not be listed as possible SINAUT connection partners if the TIM module is connected to the CPU via the S7-300 backplane bus. There will be no error message when performing the configuration with HW-Config or NetPro.

Important:

The limiting conditions of use with respect to the CPU 315 are only applicable to the above type. All previously shipped CPU 315 (6ES7 315-1AF01-0AB0 and later), CPU 315-2 DP (6ES7 315-2AF01-0AB0 and later), as well as CPU 315F-2 DP (6ES7 315-6FF00-0AB0 and later) are not affected by the problem.
