  • Associated product(s)

Configuration Notes:
For communication between a CP343-1 and WinCC, on the WinCC side you need either a general network card (e.g. 3-Com) or a CP1613 card in the WinCC PC.

  • If you choose a general network card, you will need the SIMATIC NET "Softnet S7" license to be able to communicate with an S7. The corresponding SIMATIC NET driver must be installed.
  • If you choose a CP1613, you will need the SIMATIC NET "S7-1613" license to be able to communicate with an S7. The corresponding SIMATIC NET driver must be installed.

Note:
The relevant SIMATIC NET license ("Softnet S7") is included in the WinCC delivery package.
