Connect panel with SIMATIC H station
You cannot connect a panel directly to a SIMATIC H station with the same MPI/PROFIBUS addresses and IP addresses.
The PDF document below describes how to connect panels to SIMATIC H stations.

1 Introduction
2 Unilateral panel connection to an H CPU
3 Redundant panel connection
4 Panel connection to H CPUs via two repeaters
5 Connection of a scriptable panel with "software solution" to an H CPU
   5.1 Basic functions
   5.2 Sample configuration for Industrial Ethernet with integrated WinCC flexible project
         5.2.1 STEP 7 configuration
         5.2.2 Connection parameterization in WinCC flexible
         5.2.3 Tag parameterization in WinCC flexible
         5.2.4 Script creation and implementation in WinCC flexible
