Which CPUs can you use together with SINAUT ST7?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Configuration notes:
In principle, you can use any SIMATIC S7-CPU (S7-300, S7-400, C7 complete device) in the SINAUT ST7 system. There is the SINAUT MICRO solution for S7-200. There is further information on this in the application in Entry ID: 22537809
The table below tells you the possible combinations of CPU and TIM. In addition, the diagrams show in detail

  • how CPUs and matching TIMs are connected
  • which software is used for data exchange between the CPU and TIM

Selecting the TIM for an S7-300 CPU:
With the S7-300 CPUs, there are two important factors for selecting the TIM:

  • How the communication bus is designed in the backplane bus of the CPU.
  • Which SINAUT TD7 software is used.

Communication bus in the backplane bus of the CPU:
There are two versions of this:

  • The communication bus is configured as a party line, i.e. it is physically "wired through" to the MPI interface on the CPU. This bus setup is found in "small" CPUs, i.e. from the CPU 312 up to and including the CPU 315-2 DP and the C7 devices. You can use any TIM type on this communication bus.
  • The communication bus is not configured as a party line, i.e. the MPI interface and the communication bus are separate. This bus setup is found in "large" CPUs, i.e. from the CPU 315-2 PN/DP up to and including the CPU 319-3 PN/DP. Only the TIM xx-IE types are suitable for this communication bus.

SINAUT TD7 software:
There are two softwares via which the TIM and the CPU can exchange data with each other locally:

  • TD7onCPU, SINAUT TD7 software, which runs in the CPU as part of the STEP 7 program. With TD7onCPU the SINAUT program is stored in the CPU's main memory. This software works with all the TIM modules.
    For TD7onCPU you select a CPU that has sufficient memory for the user program and the SINAUT program. The scope of the SINAUT program is dependent upon the volume of data to be transferred. At least 20 KB are required. Calculate the memory requirement for SINAUT with the following Excel worksheet.

    TD7_2_1_1_Kalk.zip ( 42 KB )
     

  • TD7onTIM, SINAUT TD7 software, which runs on the TIM. No main memory is occupied in the CPU with TD7onTIM. This software is only available for TIM xx-IE types.

Note:

  • TD7onTIM is not suitable for large volumes of data and/or fast data capture. Use TD7onCPU for such cases.
  • You can only use one TIM 3V-IE per S7-300. The other TIM types can be used multiple times per S7-300.
  • In the case of the 312 and 312C models of CPU, please note that they only support devices available since 08/2006 with a 32 KB RAM.

The figure below illustrates the combinations of 300-series CPUs and TIMs which are possible in conjunction with TD7onCPU.

Note:
Fault-tolerant SINAUT solutions with CPU 414-4H or CPU 417-4H are not possible. These CPUs can only be combined with a TIM as F-CPUs in non-redundant CPU configuration.

The figure below shows combinations of S7-300 and S7-400 CPUs that can be connected with standalone TIMs via the MPI bus. TD7onCPU is used for the communication between CPU and TIM.
