What changes are necessary when a WF470 is replaced by an MP270 Touch in an S5 controller?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Configuration Notes:

  • The blocks used for WF470 must be removed completely.
  • The pictures and functions configured for WF470 cannot be migrated and must be created anew for the MP270.
  • The MP270 can be connected to the AS511 without any additional blocks in the S5.

In the case of SIMATIC S5 PLCs it is also possible to make the connection to the multipanel MP270 also via the PROFIBUS interface module IM308C.
In the S5 you need driver blocks.
